Virtualenv itself supports Python 2.4 - 3.2 from a single codebase,
beginning with the 1.6 release a few weeks ago, thanks to Vinay Sajip.
Try it out!

As far as I know neither virtualenv3 nor virtualenv5 will be developed
anymore, as both were intended as stopgaps while virtualenv lacked
Python 3 support. Holger or Brandon can correct me if I'm wrong there.
