The betas are out!

Yesterday, Barry released the first betas for Python 2.6 and 3.0. Highlights that I remember (look in Misc/NEWS for all the gory details) include:

Now that the 2.6 and 3.0 are almost feature complete, (It was just noticed yesterday that some points of PEP 3118 have not been implemented. They will have to go in post-beta.) we can switch gears and start grinding on the bugs. What I seen so far on the tracker is already impressive. We've gotten at least 10 new issues mentioning the betas. Hopefully, the bug days this weekend will be able to stamp out many of them.
