Nope, any version of Python. If anyone is silly enough to be using 
Python 0.9 (which is over 20 years old!) I can try to answer their 
questions. The answer will nearly always be "don't use that version, it 
is ancient!!!" but still it will be an answer :-)

More seriously, anything from Python 2.4 to 3.4 is still under 
commercial or free support. Many questions, especially beginner 
questions, don't usually depend on the version, also sometimes they do. 
Most programming errors are errors regardless of the version:

x = 1 + "2"  # is an error in every version of Python
