Explains Python new-style objects:

  • what are <type 'type'> and <type 'object'>

  • how user defined classes and instances are related to each other and to built-in types

New-style implies Python version 2.2 and upto and including 3.x. There have been some behavioral changes during these version but all the concepts covered here are valid. The system described is sometimes called the Python type system, or the object model.
