General Development Python 2.6 has been released on October 1st. The major theme of this release is preparing the migration path to Python 3.0, a major redesign of the language. Whenever possible, Python 2.6 incorporates new features and syntax from 3.0 while remaining compatible with existing code by not removing older features or syntax. See the what's new docs for more details.

This makes me quite happy. Python is an amazing language ... if you don't know it yet do yourself a favour and take the 20 minutes it takes to learn it ... when you have a problem and solve it elegantly with a small amount of Python code you'll thank yourself!
