Python 2.6 has been released and 3.0 will be shortly. We'll be celebrating their releases this Tuesday with a D.I.Y. What's New party!

The format is simple: pick a change or two from the What's New in Python documentation from 2.6 or 3.0 and tell us about it! You can use the projector if you want, but < 5 minutes. That's easy because most changes are small.

Here's an example from 3.0:

"Removed <> (use != instead)."

So easy! Find some and bring 'em to us. If you get inspired and want to share one of the few larger changes (< 10 min), check the wiki and put your name down.

I'll be bringing two growlers of rare and wonderful beer from Bailey's Taproom to get the party started. Bring hardcopy of one or both What's New if you can. And party hats.
