Python 3.0 is out

Share

Python 3.0 is here.

Guido and others released Python 3.0, a major “backward” incompatible python release.

It was a necessary choice to remove many old libraries, rework the std library, and change some behaviour.

You can see it all in What’s new in Python 3.0.

  • The most visible change is maybe the print statement, print is now a function:

    print “toto”

becomes

print("toto")

A 2to3 migration module could help you for this transition.
