Python 3.11.0, the latest iteration of the exceedingly popular programming language, debuted on Monday, to the delight of software developers who care about such things. "In the CPython release team, we have put a lot of effort into making 3.11 the best version of Python possible," said Pablo Galindo Salgado, a Python steering …

    That's going to be a real boon, especially for new learners. I foresee some interesting fallout from the decision to make it opt-out though.

    Finally, Python 3.11.0 adds native support for WebAssembly. This should lead to more tools like Pyodide, which allows Python code to run as a binary in the browser's JavaScript environment.

    Not going into production here because it doesn't run on win7, XP or Win 2K. And yes, the factory has a production controller running Py 2.x on a Win2K server.

      Apart from the fact that there is no need to push this into production anywhere, that particular restriction is down to Windows runtimes. I'm sure it could be compiled for older versions of Windows, but that's up to you.

      Modern versions of Python probably require more memory than some of your systems can provide. So stick with what you have but nothing to stop you preparing your code base for the future.
