Py3k status update #9

This is the ninth 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.

Just a very short update on December's work: we're now passing about 223 of approximately 355 modules of CPython's regression test suite, up from passing 194 last month.

Some brief highlights:

  • More encoding related issues were addressed. e.g. now most if not all the multibytecodec test modules pass.
  • Fixed some path handling issues (test_os, test_ntpath and test_posixpath now pass)
  • We now pass test_class, test_descr and almost test_builtin (among other things): these are notable as they are fairly extensive test suites of core aspects of the langauge.
  • Amaury Forgeot d'Arc continued making progress on CPyExt (thanks again!)

cheers, Phil
