Python 2.5

Python 2.5 has reached alpha release stage now. Here's a list of new features that I am looking forward to in this edition of Python.

  • Unified try/except/finally. Finally!
  • ElementTree and sqlite3 in standard library!
  • Two way generators
  • New built-ins any() and all()
  • The with statement looks useful
  • The new syntax for one line conditional expressions looks nice

Markdown formatting supported
