The information is in the release notes.  I've added a pointer to the release
notes in the message.
Comment 2 GeoffLeach 2003-05-16 18:22:13 EDT
Is this the section that you're referring to?

Python has been compiled with UCS4 support (Unicode characters represented on 4
bytes) as opposed to UCS2. UCS4 allows one to represent characters outside of
the Basic Multilingual Plane. Certain third-party libraries may stop working
because of this change; recompiling these libraries should be sufficient to
resolve the problem. Please note that "pure" python modules (whose code is
written in python) or compiled modules that do not directly use Unicode are not
affected by this change.

If that's the case, I submit that this is no more helpful than the Anaconda message.
