This page contains retired news items that are too old to be called new (and probably of interest only to Python archeologists today). See also the What's (not) New? page for more recent (yet still dated) news. For current and up-to-date news, see the books page and its recent highlights.
Update, February 2014: This site recently underwent a mass purge of dated files (using tools posted here), so don't be alarmed if some of the links on this page go nowhere today. I've retained this page's text content, though, for whatever historical value it may hold.
