Blender 2.6 release is an exciting one. The new boolean operations (using CARVE library) are a massive leap forward. You really have to see the result to understand how cool that is. Having Cycles in Trunk is also intensely cool. I'm still chuffed to see this blogspot on 7th place out of 17m google results for "blender python". My traffic breaks down to repeated searches for the same things, which might warrant a direct tutorial rather than snippets.
