List released Python versions and their release & EOL dates
Ever needed to know what Python versions were currently supported, or how many subversions a given Python version had? Wondering how long until a given version came out or reached end-of-life? The answers to these and some other questions can be found with this library.
pyversion-info pulls its data every run from jwodder/pyversion-info-data on GitHub. Prerelease versions are not (currently) included. I promise 24-hour turnaround times for keeping the database up-to-date until I am hit by a bus.
Just use pip (You have pip, right?) to install pyversion-info and its dependencies:
pip install pyversion-info
Start out by fetching the database:
>>> from pyversion_info import get_pyversion_info >>> pyvinfo = get_pyversion_info()
Get a list of all currently-supported Python series:
>>> pyvinfo.supported_series() ['2.7', '3.5', '3.6', '3.7']
When does 3.8 come out?
>>> pyvinfo.release_date("3.8") datetime.date(2019, 10, 21)
When does 2.7 reach end-of-life?
>>> pyvinfo.eol_date("2.7") datetime.date(2020, 1, 1)
Just how many micro versions does 2.7 have, anyway?
>>> pyvinfo.subversions("2.7") ['2.7.0', '2.7.1', '2.7.2', '2.7.3', '2.7.4', '2.7.5', '2.7.6', '2.7.7', '2.7.8', '2.7.9', '2.7.10', '2.7.11', '2.7.12', '2.7.13', '2.7.14', '2.7.15', '2.7.16']
How many versions of Python 3 have been released?
>>> pyvinfo.subversions("3") ['3.0', '3.1', '3.2', '3.3', '3.4', '3.5', '3.6', '3.7']
Versions are passed to & returned from methods as strings in the form "X" (a major version), "X.Y" (a minor version), or "X.Y.Z" (a micro version).
All dates are returned as datetime.date objects.
A class for querying Python versions and their release & EOL dates
- Construct a new PyVersionInfo object from a
dictcontaining version release dates and series EOL dates structured in accordance with this JSON Schema
- Returns the end-of-life date of the given Python version series (i.e., a
minor version like 3.5). The return value may be
None, indicating that the series is not yet end-of-life and its end-of-life date is unknown or undetermined. The return value may alternatively be
True, indicating that the series has reached end-of-life but the date on which that happened is unknown.
- Returns whether the given version series has reached end-of-life yet
- Returns whether the given version has been released yet. For a major or minor version, this is the whether the first (in version order) micro version has been released.
- Returns whether the given version series is currently supported (i.e., has at least one release out and is not yet end-of-life)
- Returns a list in version order of all Python major versions that have ever been released
- Returns a list in version order of all Python micro versions that have ever been released. Versions in the form X.Y are included here as X.Y.0.
- Returns a list in version order of all Python minor versions that have ever been released
- Returns the release date of the given Python version. For a major or minor
version, this is the release date of its first (in version order) micro
version. The return value may be
None, indicating that, though the version has been released and is known to the database, its release date is unknown.
- Returns a list in version order of all released subversions of the given version. If version is a major version, this is all of its released minor versions. If version is a minor version, this is all of its released micro versions.
- Returns a list in version order of all Python version series (i.e., minor versions like 3.5) that are currently supported (i.e., that have at least one released made and are not yet end-of-life)
Exception raised when PyVersionInfo is asked for information about a version that does not appear in its database. Operations that result in an UnknownVersionError may succeed later as more Python versions are announced & released.
The unknown version is stored in an UnknownVersionError instance’s version attribute.
- get_pyversion_info(url=pyversion_info.DATA_URL, cache_dir=pyversion_info.CACHE_DIR)
- Fetches the latest version release data from url and returns a new
PyVersionInfo object. The HTTP response is cached in cache_dir to
speed up future requests (or cache_dir can be set to
Noneto disable caching).
