QuoteThis bugfix version of Python was released out-of-schedule to address the CVE, and as such contains a smaller number of changes compared to 3.10.6 (200 commits), or in fact 3.9.7 (187 commits) at the same stage of the release cycle a year ago. But there's still over a 100 commits in this latest Python version so it's worth checking out the change log.

QuoteDéjà vu? Right, a month after the expedited releases we are doing the dance again. This coincides with the regular scheduled time for 3.10.8 but since we accrued a few fixes in 3.7 - 3.9 as well, we're again releasing all four editions at the same time. We're not promising to continue at this pace.

As a bugfix release coming a mere month after an out-of-schedule security release, 3.10.8 is somewhat smaller compared to 3.9.8 released at the same stage of the release cycle a year ago. There's 151 commits vs 204 in 3.9. It's still a larger release than 3.10.7 at 113 commits. One way or the other, it's worth checking out the change log.
