(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Python 3.0 has been released.

I love me some python.

One quick tip- if you are using smtplib to send utf-8 email, it won't work in Python 3 unless you are using email.mime.text, like so:

import smtplib import email.mime.text

msg = email.mime.text.MIMEText("Ümlaut", _charset="UTF-8")

smtp = smtplib.SMTP('localhost') smtp.sendmail('foo@foo.com', 'foo@fo.com', "Subject: This is your mail\n" + msg.as_string()) smtp.quit()
