Where are "What's new" for 2.0, 2.1?

P: n/a
The docs for 2.2 and 2.3 contain a "What's new" section.

Are there any such sections for 2.0 and 2.1? If so, where are they?

Thanks.

Edward

Interesting question. I looked where one would, I think, expect to find
these sections, namely in the documentation page at:

http://www.python.org/doc/

and in particular, the "Previous versions" page at:

http://www.python.org/doc/versions.html

Are you suggesting that one should have to do a Google search to find this
stuff? Did I miss a link from these pages that should have been obvious?

Well, I'm not sure about "should have to", but it's what I did and I
found the pages in about 10 seconds.

No. What you perhaps didn't know is that the 2.0 and 2.1 versions of
the documentation were not part of the official Python documentation
but rather semi-independent efforts, and so *I*, knowing this,
wouldn't have expected them to be on python.org.

It would probably make sense if they or links to them did appear
where you looked.

Most of the pages for specific versions has links to the what's new
document (http://www.python.org/2.1.3/ even has a link to both).

The fact that the python.org site is not optimally organised is not
news, I thought, though it's getting much better.

Cheers,
mwh

Well, it need not be mandated from on high, but isn't the next logical
step after you've looked in the most obvious place for something and not
found it a Google search?
