Pi day

Friday 14 March 2014

Happy Pi day! Celebrate with delicious circular pastries!

In an ongoing (and wildly premature!) thread on the Python-Dev mailing list, people are debating the possible shapes of Python 4, and Barry pointed out that Guido doesn’t like two-digit minor versions.

I can understand that, version numbers look like floats, and 3.1 is the same as 3.10. But in this case I think we should forge on to 3.10, 3.11, etc. Partly to avoid the inevitable panic that a switch to 4.x will entail, no matter what the actual semantics. But mostly so that we can get to version 3.14, which will of course be known as PiPy, joining in merry celebration with friends PyPI and PyPy!
