-Release Schedule
-----------------
+Build Instructions
+------------------
 
-See PEP 375 for release details: http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0375/
+On Unix, Linux, BSD, OSX, and Cygwin:
+
+    ./configure
+    make
+    make test
+    sudo make install
+
+This will install Python as python3.
+
+You can pass many options to the configure script; run "./configure
+--help" to find out more.  On OSX and Cygwin, the executable is called
+python.exe; elsewhere it's just python.
+
+On Mac OS X, if you have configured Python with --enable-framework,
+you should use "make frameworkinstall" to do the installation.  Note
+that this installs the Python executable in a place that is not
+normally on your PATH, you may want to set up a symlink in
+/usr/local/bin.
+
+On Windows, see PCbuild/readme.txt.
+
+If you wish, you can create a subdirectory and invoke configure from
+there.  For example:
+
+    mkdir debug
+    cd debug
+    ../configure --with-pydebug
+    make
+    make test
+
+(This will fail if you *also* built at the top-level directory.  You
+should do a "make clean" at the toplevel first.)
+
+
+What's New
+----------
+
+We try to have a comprehensive overview of the changes in the "What's New in
+Python 3.1" document, found at
+
+    http://docs.python.org/dev/3.1/whatsnew/3.1.html
+
+For a more detailed change log, read Misc/NEWS (though this file, too,
+is incomplete, and also doesn't list anything merged in from the 2.7
+release under development).
+
+If you want to install multiple versions of Python see the section below
+entitled "Installing multiple versions".

-Proposals for enhancement
--------------------------
-
-If you have a proposal to change Python, you may want to send an email to the
-comp.lang.python or python-ideas mailing lists for inital feedback. A Python
-Enhancement Proposal (PEP) may be submitted if your idea gains ground. All
-current PEPs, as well as guidelines for submitting a new PEP, are listed at
-http://www.python.org/dev/peps/.

 Converting From Python 2.x to 3.x
 ---------------------------------
 
 needs to be changed, such as optional warnings when deprecated features are
 used, and backported versions of certain key Python 3.x features.
 
+A source-to-source translation tool, "2to3", can take care of the mundane task
+of converting large amounts of source code.  It is not a complete solution but
+is complemented by the deprecation warnings in 2.6.  See
+http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/2to3.html for more information.
