-For Python.3.7, python.org currently provides two installer variants for download: one that installs a 
-\i 64-bit-only 
-\i0 Python capable of running on 
-\i macOS 10.9 (Mavericks)
-\i0  or later; and one that installs a 
-\i 64-bit/32-bit Intel
-\i0  Python capable of running on 
-\i macOS 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
-\i0  or later.  (This ReadMe was installed with the 
-\i $MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET
-\i0  variant.)  If you are running on macOS 10.9 or later and if you have no need for compatibility with older systems, use the 10.9 variant.  Use the 10.6 variant if you are running on macOS 10.6 through 10.8 or if you want to produce standalone applications that can run on systems from 10.6.  The Pythons installed by these installers are built with private copies of some third-party libraries not included with or newer than those in macOS itself.  The list of these libraries varies by installer variant and is included at the end of the License.rtf file.

+\f1\b \cf0 CHANGED in 3.7.4: 
+\f0\b0  The 
+\f1\b 10.6+ 64-/32-bit installer variant  is being deprecated
+\f0\b0 .  
+\f1\b Python 3.8.0
+\f0\b0  will 
+\f1\b not
+\f0\b0  include a binary installer for 10.6+ and 
+\f1\b future bugfix releases of 3.7.x
+\f0\b0  may not, either.  Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard was released in 2009 and has not been supported by Apple for many years including lack of security updates.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to ensure new Python features and bug fixes are compatible with such old systems especially with Apple's deprecation and removal of 32-bit support in recent and upcoming macOS releases.  We believe that there is now very little usage of this installer variant and so we would like to focus our resources on supporting newer systems.  We do not plan to intentionally break Python support on 10.6 and we will consider bug fixes for problems found when building from source on 10.6. \
