Python 3.0

Python 3.0 has just been released, and has not been afraid to shed backward compatibility.

I am some way away from using it since I use Django which currently runs on 2.3 or better, I use 2.5 and may move to 2.6 if Django supports it, though I have seen nothing to that effect yet which means I will be using 2.5 for a while yet.

It is very brave to shed backward compatibility with a language, almost like setting the clock back to zero in terms of adoption.
