chromatic writes "In December 2008, the Python developers released Python 3.0, a new
version of the popular dynamic programming language. The process included concurrent revisions of Python 2.6, intended in part as a migration between existing Python programs and the new version. O'Reilly News recently spoke to Python creator Guido van Rossum for a retrospective on the language and its development, as well for his views on uptake and migration to Python 3.0. For the futurists, expect Python 3.1 sometime in the next year, and at least five years of backwards compatibility for the 3.x family."
