+Py3k status update #11
+----------------------
+
+This is the 11th status update about our work on the `py3k branch`_, which we
+can work on thanks to all of the people who donated_ to the `py3k proposal`_.
+
+Here's some highlights of the progress made since the previous update:
+
+* PyPy py3k now matches CPython 3's hash code for
+  int/float/complex/Decimal/Fraction
+
+* Various outstanding unicode identifier related issues were
+  resolved. E.g. test_importlib/pep263/ucn/unicode all now fully pass. Various
+  usage of identifiers (in particular type and module names) have been fixed to
+  handle non-ascii names -- mostly around display of reprs and exception
+  messages.
+
+* The unicodedata database has been upgraded to 6.0.0.
+
+* Windows support has greatly improved, though it could still use some more
+  help (but so does the default branch to a certain degree).
+
+* Probably the last of the parsing related bugs/features have been taken care
+  of.
+
+* Of course various other smaller miscellaneous fixes
+
+This leaves the branch w/ only about 5 outstanding failures of the stdlib test
+suite:
+
+* test_float
+
+  1 failing test about containment of floats in collections.
+
+* test_memoryview
+
+  Various failures: requires some bytes/str changes among other things (Manuel
+  Jacob's has some progress on this on the `py3k-memoryview branch`_)
+
+* test_multiprocessing
+
+  1 or more tests deadlock on some platforms
+
+* test_sys and test_threading
+
+  2 failing tests for the New GIL's new API
+
+Probably the biggest feature left to tackle is the New GIL.
+
+We're now pretty close to pushing an initial release. We had planned for one
+around PyCon, but having missed that we've put some more effort into the branch
+to provide a more fully-fledged initial release.
+
+Thanks to the following for their contributions: Manuel Jacob, Amaury Forgeot
+d'Arc, Karl Ramm, Jason Chu and Christian Hudson.
+
+cheers,
+Phil
