Howdy howdy! It's time to make the next bugfix release of 3.5--and the
/final/ release /ever/ of Python 3.4. Here's the schedule I propose:
3.4.10rc1 and 3.5.7rc1 - Saturday March 2 2019
3.4.10 final and 3.5.7 final - Saturday March 16 2019
What's going in these releases? Not much. I have two outstanding PRs
bpo-33127 GH-10994: Compatibility patch for LibreSSL 2.7.0
bpo-34623 GH-9933: XML_SetHashSalt in _elementtree
and one PR against 3.4:
bpo-34623 GH-9953: Use XML_SetHashSalt in _elementtree
I expect to merge all three of those, I just need to get around to it.
There's one more recent security fix (bpo-35746, GH-11569) that I want
in these releases that still needs backporting.
And that's the entire list. bpo-34623 is the only current release
blocker for either 3.4 or 3.5--I'm not aware of anything else in the
pipeline. If you have anything you think needs to go into the next 3.5,
or the final 3.4, and it's /not/ listed above, please either file a
GitHub PR, file a release-blocker bug on bpo, or email me directly.
Good night sweet Python 3.4, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
