Apr 28, 2003, 15:00 (3 Talkback[s])

"We are pleased to announce the release of Python 2.3b1 on April 25, 2003. This is a beta release. We request widespread testing of this release but don't recommend using it for production situations. Beta releases contain bugs. New APIs are expected to be stable, and may be changed only if serious deficiencies are found. No new APIs or modules will be added after the first beta release. If you have an important Python application, we strongly recommend that you try it out with a beta release and report any incompatibilities or other problems you may encounter, so that they can be fixed before the final release. To report problems, use the SourceForge bug tracker. See also the list of known bugs.

"The roadmap for the Python 2.3 release is PEP 283. We're shooting for a second beta in a month, and the final release in July.

"(The latest stable release is Python 2.2.2.)
