Python 2.7

Staying on an unsupported open source version of Python 2.7 comes with some risk--you need to be ready for new vulnerabilities that may emerge in the older code base. With the official end-of-life of the Python 2 series scheduled for 2020, you may need continued support for this version, or help in migrating to the 3 series. ActiveState is here to help.

Support for Python 2.7 and older

Even after the community stops backporting security fixes after the end-of-life date, ActiveState will continue to support Python 2.7 when you need to stay on that version for business and mission-critical systems. And can assist in the transition of your code and algorithms to the Python 3 series.

If you are using Python 2 in production, find out more about Business Edition and Enterprise Edition. ActivePython is available for Python 2.5, Python 2.6, and Python 2.7 distributions for Windows, Linux and macOS.

We can provide you with commercial support for your systems using legacy Python or during your transition to the Python 3 series.
