+Additional notes for Python 3.0 final
+-------------------------------------
 
 * The bsddb3 package has been removed from the standard library.  It is
   available as a separate distutils based package from the Python Cheeseshop.
   If you need bsddb3 support in Python 3.0, you can find it here:
 
   http://pypi.python.org/pypi/bsddb3

-Version 3.0a2 - Release Date 07-Dec-2007
-----------------------------------------
-
-* The AMD64 Windows installer doesn't contain Tcl/Tk, and hence IDLE
-  won't work.  This is because Tcl doesn't compile at all on this
-  platform.
-
-* The 32bit build for the Win32/x86 platform is optimized with PGO
-  (profile guided optimization).  Please read Microsoft's docs for
-  `PGO
-  <http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e7k32f4k(VS.90).aspx>`_
-  if you are interested in details.  Preliminary benchmarks have shown
-  a speedup of about 10% in PyBench.  Real world applications may gain
-  more or less speedup.
-
-* The Tools directory contains a copy of the 2to3 conversion tool.
-  Note that 2to3 itself must be run with Python 2.5!
-
-* SSL support is back!  However, while the tests pass, the SSL code
-  appears to be leaking quite a bit, and there are still bugs.
-  We'll be working on this for the next release.
-
-* On Windows, Python can't be run from a directory with non ASCII chars
-  in its path name (`bug #1342 <http://bugs.python.org/issue1342>`_).
-
-* On Windows, the module doc server (pydocgui.pyw) is crashing.
-
-* On Windows, the menus in IDLE are broken.
-
-* The current releases of Cygwin and MinGW can't create extensions for
-  the official Python 3.0 binary.  The necessary modifications to
-  Cygwin are already in its CVS.  Look out for a new Cygwin release!
-
-* Otherwise, the 3.0a1 release notes below still apply, except hashlib
-  no longer requires openssl, and IDLE now seems fine (except on Windows).
-
-
-Version 3.0a1 - Release Date 31-Aug-2007
-----------------------------------------
-
-* SSL support is disabled.  This causes test_ssl to be skipped.
-  The new SSL support in the 2.6 trunk (with server-side support and
-  certificate verification) will be ported for 3.0a2.
-
-* If you don't have `openssl <http://www.openssl.org>`_ installed, or
-  a version older than 0.9.7, hashlib is non-functional, which means
-  there is no way to compute MD5 checksums.  This breaks some modules.
-
-* Platform support is reduced.  We've mostly tested on Linux, OSX,
-  and Windows.  Solaris is also supported (somewhat).
-
-* There may be additional issues on 64-bit architectures.
-
-* There are still some open issues on Windows.
-
-* Some new features are very fresh, and probably contain bugs: the new
-  format() method on strings (PEP 3101), the strict separation of
-  bytes and strings, the new buffer API (PEP 3118).
-
-* IDLE still has some open issues.  If you can't run it at all, try
-  "idle -n" which disables the separate subprocess for the
-  interpreter.
