Learning Python, 2'nd Edition, O'Reilly

Does anyone know when this is due to be released? I am assuming that
this version will cover Python 2.3, and be the first book to fully do
so.

Not exactly, but the late-October-to-November
timeframe is as good a guess as any. Last I
heard, it's now in the production pipeline.

It will be a 2.3 book, despite what some of the
marketing might say (we started it awhile ago).

For a few more words, here's a web page I
posted in response to email queries:

According to Amazon, it should be available 1st October (I don't know how
reliable their predictions normally are, though).

Thank you so much for your kind reply, Mr. Lutz. I look forward to the
new edition of Learning Python eagerly. I know it will become a
classic snapshot of a most significant time in Python's history, and
will help to further popularize the language.

Of course, Python in a Nutshell also, already, documents most of
Python's newer features, and I am most profitably continuing to peruse
both my copy of the Nutshell and my copy of the Cookbook, so I will
not be wasting my (little but precious) free time until the Learning
2'nd Edition arrives.
