CPython (or any project generally following semver) doesn't make that kind
of change in a "micro" release. You're probably reading the general 3.4
changelog. Looks like the patch for that PEP was merged in for 3.4.0-alpha2
<https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/3.4/Misc/NEWS#L3708-L3721> a couple
of years ago. Here is the changelog for 3.4.3
