Python3 – Intentionaly backward incompatible

Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries.

The Python developers have released the final version of Python
, a major reworking of the programming language. It’s said to be intentionally incompatible
with the Python 2 series.

According to Guido van Rossum (Project Founder)

“… the new features in Python 3.0, compared to 2.6.
Python 3.0, also known as “Python 3000” or “Py3K”, is the first ever
intentionally backwards incompatible Python release. There are more
changes than in a typical release, and more that are important for all
Python users. Nevertheless, after digesting the changes, you’ll find
that Python really hasn’t changed all that much – by and large, we’re
mostly fixing well-known annoyances and warts, and removing a lot of
old cruft.”
