Plans for the future
Version 3.4 is the last version in the 3.x range. Version 4.0 will drop the following modules, as they are insecure:
Those modules are marked as deprecated in version 3.4.
Furthermore, in 4.0 the I/O functions will be streamlined to always work with bytes on all supported versions of Python.
Version 4.0 will drop support for Python 2.6, and possibly for Python 3.3.
