I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of Python 2.7.15 release candidate 1. Python 2.7.15rc1 is a preview release of the next bug fix release in the Python 2.7.x series.

Python 2.7.15rc1 may be downloaded in source and binary forms from

   https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2715rc1/

Please consider testing this release with your applications and libraries and reporting bugs to

    https://bugs.python.org/

A final release is expected in 2 weeks time.

2.7.15 includes some noteworthy changes to the macOS installers: All python.org macOS installers now ship with a built-in 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.

Thank you,
Benjamin
