more searching I find this on the 3.5 b1 download page

"Windows users: The Windows binaries were built with Microsoft Visual Studio 
2015, which is not yet officially released. (It's currently offered in "Preview" 
mode, which is akin to a "beta".) It is our intention to ship Python 3.5 using 
VS2015, although right now VS2015's final release date is unclear."
