Python is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language.

By default, the end-of-life is scheduled 5 years after the first release, but can be adjusted by the release manager of each branch. The support for Python 2.7 has currently been extended to 2020-01-01. Versions older than 2.7 have reached end-of-life.

Many projects have pledged to drop support for Python 2.7 no later than 2020, coinciding with the Python development team’s timeline for dropping support for Python 2.7.

More information is available on the Python website.

You should be running one of the supported release numbers listed above in the rightmost column.

You can check the version that you are currently using by running:
