Added Windows news. Also repeated 1.6 Windows news since most people getting 2.0b1 for Windows will not have bothered getting 1.6. Also changed "Changed, New, Obsolete Tools" to say "None" since nobody had put an entry there.

All the NEWS that I could finish in 15 minutes (and then some) Removed some attributions from the shorter entries in Changed Modules, because that section is so long.

Many changes suggested by Bob Weiner, mostly small grammatical fixes or other clarifications, with the occasional plug for BeOpen PythonLabs thrown in. Also added a trademarks disclaimer.

Fix PDF generation. The \\ introduced in the \author in boilerplate.tex broke the PDF generation because line breaks are not allowed in the "Document Info" metadata stored in the PDF file. This changes the line break to a ", " (comma-space) in that context.

Minor nit to make this work a little better with the PDF generation fix. This does not change the HTML or PostScript output.

Barry Warsaw: Fixed -+ operator. Added some new sections. Leave some XXX notes for now. I could use help here!!!! Please mail me patches ASAP. We may have to put some of this off to 2.0final, but it's best to have it in shape now...

Now that I've got real docs, redirect _DOC_ out of the Python 1.6 tree and to the new docs. Added a description to the Tcl/Tk file copies.

Since it looks like the dual license clause may be neither necessary nor sufficient to make Python 2.0 compatible with the GPL, we won't bother with it now. In other words, we're still where we were weeks ago -- CNRI believes that its license is GPL-compatible, Stallman says it's not. I'm trying to arrange a meeting between their lawyers so they can work it out. Whether dual licensing is the solution is open at this point. If it is the (only!) solution, we'll add that to the BeOpen license for 2.0 final.

Added release dates (in some cases detemined by looking at the mtime of distribution files in ftp://ftp.python.org/pub/python/src/).
