Python 3.8.0a1 is now available for testing

Go get it here:
https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-380a1/

The most visible change so far is probably the implementation of PEP 572: Assignment Expressions. For a detailed list of changes, see:
https://docs.python.org/3.8/whatsnew/changelog.html

Python 3.8.0a1 is the first of four planned alpha releases of Python 3.8, the next feature release of Python.  During the alpha phase, Python 3.8 remains under heavy development: additional features will be added and existing features may be modified or deleted.  Please keep in mind that this is a preview release and its use is not recommended for production environments.  The next preview release, Python 3.8.0a2, is planned for 2019-02-24.
