Newer version of Python 3

Is there any plans to upgrade python 3 to a newer version like 3.5?


Before the upgrade, maybe can we wait some time for the release of Python 3.6 which brings for example formatted string literals?

Also, an upgrade of Numpy would be nice. Codingame version is 1.8.2 while the last release is 1.11.2. I encountered unexpected slowdowns with some functions, so I guess the problem is with the version.

Python 3 has been updated to version 3.5.3
Also Numpy has been updated to 1.12



Why not 3.6 with one go?

and what about scipy:

import numpy as np
from scipy import ndimage
a = ndimage.measurements.label(np.eye(3))

ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/scipy/special/ failed to map segment from shared object: Cannot allocate memory

Thank you for the upgrade (Y)

a few months later: any news on maybe upgrading to 3.6? Thanks

3.6 was released so long time ago. Weird that we do not have 3.6.

Hint: Wait ~2 months, and do 3.7 please.

import sys
# prints: 3.6.3 (default, Oct  3 2017, 21:16:13)
