New issue 3037: PyPy3.6 Release Schedule? New beta quality PyPy3.6 soon?

Pierre Augier:

I'd like to use PyPy with packages needing Python >= 3.6. In science, it is now quite standard. For example, conda, which only uses 2 Python versions, is now limited to Python 3.6 and 3.7 \(and quite soon 3.7 and 3.8 :slight_smile: \). So people tend to use f-strings and `pathlib.Path` and to assume that the code will be executed with Python >= 3.6.

So having a better PyPy3.6 soon \(for example before EuroScipy in September\) would be desirable. PyPy3.6 7.1.1 has bugs that are now solved in the PyPy36 branch. For example, \[Transonic\]\([https://transonic.readthedocs.io](https://transonic.readthedocs.io)\) tests pass with the nightly builds but fail with PyPy3.6 7.1.1.

Do you plan to release a new beta quality PyPy3.6 soon? I didn’t find anything like the release schedule of CPython for PyPy [https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0596/](https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0596/) ? Is there anything similar?
