It should be fully supported. However, unless you have a particular
reason for using 2.7.6 (it's normally written in three parts, by the

there've been a number of bugs fixed, including some SSL improvements.
Where do you normally download Python from? There are a number of
different sources, and some of them may offer different promises of
support (ActiveState, for instance, supports some older versions of
Python), but this is the primary place to get the official installers:
