Python 3.0 makes a big break

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 68.91.35.128] on October 18, 2008 08:11 PM
@74.39.77.13: You're jumping FAR too soon, friend. Python 2.6 was just released a few weeks ago; THAT should be your next step, once the libraries that you need have been released for it. Once your code works nicely on that, just enjoy the experience and feel the power for a while; no worries. Once the libraries that you need have been released for 3.0, THEN begin planning the jump to that version.

The "early adopters" are prepped to endure the pain of the early transition; your post makes clear you're not one of them, so WAIT! There's no shame is using what's stable, mature and well-understood. It's what the bulk of professional Python programmers do - wait for all the batteries to be included, THEN upgrade. :-)
