Python 2.3 Beta 1 is out.
A.M. Kuchling has put together his usual What's New in Python 2.3 document.
Also good - the string method changes. One of these was my feature request - the optional arguments on the strip method and its siblings. This was backported to 2.2.2 - it was added to the string method, but not to the string module function, though the documentation incorrectly said that it was added to both. Given the frequency with which this comes up on c.l.py, it seems that this is a much-used feature already!
Generators are now enabled by default - I've been using these a lot.Posted to Python by Simon Brunning at April 28, 2003 10:37 AM
