Python 2.6 beta 1 and 3.0 beta 1

Python is sticking pretty close to their release schedule for Python 2.6 and 3.0 as documented in PEP 361. They released Python 2.6 beta 1 and 3.0 beta 1 today. If you&apos're curious about their progress, check the 2.6 release notes.

By the way, I noticed that they fixed a problem with one of the rotating log handlers - it was using a simple filename instead of the full file path when deleting old log files.

I have been wanting to check my code in both 2.6 and 3.0 latest releases. Now that it is in beta, I should be able to get a pretty good idea of what has changed. All I want is for it to "feel" like python.
