Greetings, I'm wealful to announce the immediate availability of Python 2.7.17, another bugfix release in the Python 2.7 series. Downloads are on python.org:
No code changes occurred between the 2.7.17 release candidate and the final release, but there were some documentation changes. See the 2.7.17rc1 changelog for changes between 2.7.16 and 2.7.17:
PEP 373, the Python 2.7 releases schedule, designates 2.7.17 as the penultimate Python 2.7 release. So, be aware that the upstream demise of Python 2 is not far away.
For the time being, bugs may be reported to https://bugs.python.org.
See you soon for The End, Benjamin
