New features planned for Python 4.0

With the release of Python 3.8 coming soon, the core development team has asked me to summarize our latest discussions on the new features planned for Python 4.0, codename "ouroboros: the snake will eat itself". This will be an exciting release and a significant milestone, many thanks to the hard work of over 100 contributors.

We look forward to this release, and will do everything in our power to ensure it takes us several minor versions before it is even remotely usable.

Take heart! Remember the python motto:

What is dead can never die


Don't worry, all these snakes were already on death row.
