Fedora Update Notification
2012-06-08 23:26:55

Name        : python3
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 3.2.3
Release     : 2.fc16
URL         : http://www.python.org/
Summary     : Version 3 of the Python programming language aka Python 3000
Description :
Python 3 is a new version of the language that is incompatible with the 2.x
line of releases. The language is mostly the same, but many details, especially
how built-in objects like dictionaries and strings work, have changed
considerably, and a lot of deprecated features have finally been removed.

Update Information:

Fixes debug build systemtap support.
Rebase of python3 from 3.2.1 to 3.2.3 bringing in security fixes, along with many other bug fixes.
The compiled *.pyc and *.pyo files are now properly compiled so python3 doesn't try to recompile them over and over on runtime anymore.
