Python 3000 is coming. 

Guido van Rossum explains what Python developer should expect from Python 3000 in his blog article and keynote.

Python 3000 is not compatible with current Python 2. Most changes represent language clean-up and removal of deprecated features (classic classes, string exceptions). Overall language will become smaller with fewer surprises and exceptions. Guido urges developers not to change API and promises to support Python 2.6 for at least 5 years. He mentions that 2to3 tool (source-to-source) translator will help to migrate from Python 2 to Python 3000 easier.

Release of Python 3.0 final is expected in August 2008.
