The EOL date for Python 2.7 support is rapidly closing! After December 31st, 2019, Python 2.7 is officially no longer supported by the Python team. Many Python packages and tools have also pledged to stop support or even stop working after that date.
Panda3D 1.10 already has great support for Python 3, and the dev team is also looking forward to the day that we no longer need to worry about Python 2. It is an increasingly significant maintenance burden to keep supporting it, and a lot of effort goes into it that should be going into more important features, like improving the rendering engine, mobile support, etc.
I’ve created this thread to try and understand if there are still people using Python 2, and if so, why. If there are any roadblocks we can help alleviate, that would be good to know. Please share your thoughts!
- Yes, of course I’m on Python 3 already!
- Almost—I’m working on it!
- Soon—I have plans to upgrade before EOL
- No, and I have not thought about upgrading yet
