New Python Versions

PPA description

This PPA contains more recent Python versions packaged for Ubuntu.

Disclaimer: there's no guarantee of timely updates in case of security problems or other issues. If you want to use them in a security-or-otherwise-critical environment (say, on a production server), you do so at your own risk.

Reporting Issues
Issues can be reported in the master issue tracker at:

Supported Ubuntu and Python Versions
Python 3.6 - Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04

For Ubuntu up to 16.04, there's also packages for old Python versions from 2.3 to 3.4.

The packages may also work on other versions of Ubuntu or Debian, but that is not tested or supported.

Third-Party Python Modules
Python modules in the official Ubuntu repositories are packaged to work with the Python interpreters from the official repositories. Accordingly, they generally won't work with the Python interpreters from this PPA. As an exception, pure-Python modules for Python 3 will work, but any compiled extension modules won't.

To install 3rd-party Python modules, you should use the common Python packaging tools. For an introduction into the Python packaging ecosystem and its tools, refer to the Python Packaging User Guide:
