I don't see it documented that dicts preserve insertion order. 3.7 what's new points to [1], but that section doesn't have a "version changed" tag.

IMO, [1] should have two version changed tags: one for 3.6, and one for 3.7.

Also, it would be great if we could document how the order is preserved when a key is deleted from the dict etc.

As reference, issue32337 made some changes documenting that the dicts preserve insertion order.  Also, issue33218 was marked as being superseded by #32337.

I agree with Yury's suggestions; the entry in the "Dictionary view objects" section, that Cheryl points to, is not sufficient.  Is somebody willing to write a PR?

The wording sounds strange to me.  Currently it is:
> Note that updating key doesn't affects the order ...

I would say:
> Note that updating a key does not affect the order ...

Neil, that looks like a perfect opportunity to use the GitHub web interface to make that edit :)

It seems the note at the bottom for `object.__hash__(self)` [1] should be updated as well.
