LXer: Python Essential Reference, 4th Edition (Developer's Library)

Published at LXer:

The key feature of this edition of the reference guide, is the presence of both Python 2.6 and 3.0. If you're savvy enough to be reading a review about a Python reference text, you know that Python 3.0 breaks backwards compatibility. This is a big deal in terms of how Beazley chose to update his book. To quote, "...I have chosen to omit features of Python 2 that have been removed from Python 3". Beazley also doesn't include those features in Python 3 that haven't been back-ported. This approach is the author's attempt to make the book equally serve programmers using 2.x vs. 3.0. Not that this is the only update the text has to offer.
