QuoteThe CPython core developers are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Python 2.7.18.Python 2.7.18 is the last Python 2.7release and therefore the last Python 2 release. It's time for the CPythoncommunity to say a fond but firm farewell to Python 2.Python 2.7 has been under active development since the release of Python 2.6,more than 11 years ago. Over all those years, CPython's core developers andcontributors sedulously applied bug fixes to the 2.7 branch, no small task asthe Python 2 and 3 branches diverged. There were large changes midway throughPython 2.7's life such as PEP 466's feature backports to the ssl module andhash randomization. Traditionally, these features would never have been addedto a branch in maintenance mode, but exceptions were made to keep Python 2 userssecure. Thank you to CPython's community for such dedication.
