On behalf of the Python development community and the Python 3.5 release 
team, I'm thrilled to announce the availability of Python 3.5.0a3.   
Python 3.5.0a3 is the third alpha release of Python 3.5, which will be 
the next major release of Python.  Python 3.5 is still under heavy 
development, and is far from complete.

This is a preview release, and its use is not recommended for production 

Two important notes for Windows users about Python 3.5.0a3:

  * If you have previously installed Python 3.5.0a1, you may need to
    manually uninstall it before installing Python 3.5.0a3 (issue23612).
  * If installing Python 3.5.0a3 as a non-privileged user, you may need
    to escalate to administrator privileges to install an update to your
    C runtime libraries.

You can find Python 3.5.0a3 here:


Happy hacking,
