Python 2.7: Support Past EOL
Python 2 is now officially unsupported by the Python Software Foundation. Following the last release, Python 2.7.18, no version of Python 2 will receive updates – even to critical security vulnerabilities. But that doesn’t mean it will disappear any time soon from organizations that have relied on it for years.
That means risk. Security vulnerabilities and critical bugs will emerge as you continue to run your Python 2 applications on newer systems. Don’t yet have a plan in place? If so, you’re not alone as our Python 2 EOL Survey results show.
