On behalf of the Python development community and the Python 3.6 release team, I would like to announce the availability of Python 3.6.2rc1. 3.6.2rc1 is the first release candidate for Python 3.6.2, the next maintenance release of Python 3.6. While 3.6.2rc1 is a preview release and, thus, not intended for production environments, we encourage you to explore it and provide feedback via the Python bug tracker (https://bugs.python.org).

Please see "What’s New In Python 3.6" for more information:
