In this series looking at features introduced by every version of Python 3, we continue our look at the new Python 3.11 release, taking a look at new language features around exceptions and error handling.
This is the 25th of the 29 articles that currently make up the “Python 3 Releases” series, the first of which was What’s New in Python 3.0. This article was preceded by What’s New in Python 3.11 - Performance Improvements.
I was slow to make the transition from Python 2 to 3 in the first place, and I never felt like I kept up properly with the new features. So I’m going to aim to do a series of articles looking at a different Python version in each and go through the new features added and catch myself up properly. This one addresses features added in Python 3.0 beyond those already in 2.6, including Unicode by default, type annotations, and exception chaining.
This is the 1st of the 29 articles that currently make up the “Python 3 Releases” series.
