On behalf of the Python development community and the Python 3.6 release team, I'm pleased to announce the availability of Python 3.6.0b4. 3.6.0b4 is the last planned beta release of Python 3.6, the next major release of Python.
Among the new major new features in Python 3.6 are:

Beta releases are intended to give the wider community the opportunity to test new features and bug fixes and to prepare their projects to support the new feature release. We strongly encourage maintainers of third-party Python projects to test with 3.6 during the beta phase and report issues found to bugs.python.org as soon as possible. While the release is feature complete entering the beta phase, it is possible that features may be modified or, in rare cases, deleted up until the start of the release candidate phase (2016-12-05). Our goal is have no changes after rc1. To achieve that, it will be extremely important to get as much exposure for 3.6 as possible during the beta phase. Please keep in mind that this is a preview release and its use is not recommended for production environments
The next pre-release of Python 3.6 will be 3.6.0rc1, the release candidate, currently scheduled for 2016-12-05. The official release of Python 3.6.0 is currently scheduled for 2016-12-16. More information about the release schedule can be found here:
