[Python-Dev] [RELEASED] Python 3.4.0 release candidate 1


Hi,

It would be nice to give also the link to the whole changelog in your
emails and on the website:
http://docs.python.org/3.4/whatsnew/changelog.html

Congrats for your RC1 release :-) It's always hard to make developers
stop addings "new minor" changes before the final version :-)
