Windows and Mac users: please read the important platform-specific 
"Notes on this release" section near the end of that page.

One final note.  3.4.4 final marks the end of an era: it contains the 
last Windows installers that will be built by Martin von Loewis.  Martin 
has been the Windows release "Platform Expert" since the Python 2.4 
release cycle started more than twelve years ago--in other words, for 
more than half of Python's entire existence!  On behalf of the Python 
community, and particularly on behalf of the Python release managers, 
I'd like to thank Martin for his years of service to the community, and 
for the care and professionalism he brought to his role.  It was a 
pleasure working with him, and we wish him the very best in his future 

We hope you enjoy Python 3.4.4!

Happy holidays,
