I am a little curious about ArcPy, the new Python site-package that comes with ArcGIS 10, which as far as I know will ship next month. Will ArcPy be a major change or merely another label for the capabilities of the old arcgisscripting ?
import arcpy instead of import arcgisscripting ?
There are some new features and modules but nothing fancy. Wow, they’re moving to Python 2.6. What about 3.1? Over all, little reason to think that my hopes for Python as the ArcGIS super-glue language are about to come true. The mention of Iron Python here got me excited but … we’ll have to wait for ArcGIS15.
