I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of Python 2.7.15, the latest bug fix release in the senescent Python 2.7 series.

Source and binary downloads may be found on python.org:


Bugs should be reported to https://bugs.python.org/

The source tarball contains a complete changelog in the Misc/NEWS file. The only change since the release candidate is a fix for undefined C behavior that newer compilers (including GCC 8) have started to exploit.

Users of the macOS binaries should note that all python.org macOS installers now ship with a builtin copy of OpenSSL. Additionally, there is a new additional installer variant for macOS 10.9+ that includes a built-in version of Tcl/Tk 8.6. See the installer README for more information.

Happy May,
2.7 release manager
