Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] IPython 7.17 drops Python 3.6 support AKA upgrade reminder
Date: Sat, 01 Aug 2020 07:36:27
1 Hello, everyone.
3 The most recent release of IPython removes support for Python 3.6.
4 Unless I'm mistaken, this is the first very high profile package
5 to become 3.7+ only. Please expect a major slay of Python 3.6 support
6 in its reverse dependencies today. That is, when I finish the large
7 part of my today's TODO called 'immediate bumps'.
9 I would like to take this as an opportunity to remind you to port your
10 packages to Python 3.7 and 3.8. According to our timeline [1], packages
11 that are not ported by the end of the year are going to be last rited.
12 We would also like to switch to 3.8 in December.
