On behalf of the
Python development community and the Python 3.4 and Python 3.5
release teams, I'm relieved to announce the availability of
Python 3.4.7rc1 and Python 3.5.4rc1.
Python 3.4 is now in "security fixes only" mode. This is the
final stage of support for Python 3.4. Python 3.4 now only
receives security fixes, not bug fixes, and Python 3.4 releases
are source code only--no more official binary installers will be
Python 3.5.4 will be the final 3.5 release in "bug fix" mode.
After 3.5.4 is released, Python 3.5 will also move into
"security fixes mode".
Both these releases are "release candidates". They should not
be considered the final releases, although the final releases
should contain only minor differences. Python users are
encouraged to test with these releases and report any problems

Python 3.4.7 final and Python 3.5.4 final are both scheduled for
release on August 6th, 2017.
