Re: Python 3.0 makes a big break

Your comment is a bit over the top and this article also does no point in highlighting the plan.

Python 2.6 already provides some Python 3 features and the subsequent 2.7 and 2.8 releases will gradually introduce more and more so that moving over at one point will not be so disruptive.

Then there is the 2to3 tool which will take your code and convert it as much as possible to the 3's syntax.

There is no one telling you to move to 3.0 NOW. 2.6 just got released and a lot of people are only now ditching 2.3 and moving to 2.5 or perhaps 2.6. So the whole move to 3.x is years into the future.
