Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.7.0, Package name: python37-3.7.0, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented
programming language that combines remarkable power with
very clear syntax. For an introduction to programming in
Python you are referred to the Python Tutorial. The
Python Library Reference documents built-in and standard
types, constants, functions and modules. Finally, the
Python Reference Manual describes the syntax and semantics
of the core language in (perhaps too) much detail.

Python's basic power can be extended with your own modules
written in C or C++. On most systems such modules may be
dynamically loaded. Python is also adaptable as an exten-
sion language for existing applications. See the internal
documentation for hints.

This package provides Python version 3.7.x.

python37: added version 3.7.0

Python 3.7.0 is the newest major release of the Python language, and it contains \ 
many new features and optimizations.

Among the major new features in Python 3.7 are:

PEP 539, new C API for thread-local storage
PEP 545, Python documentation translations
New documentation translations: Japanese, French, and Korean.
PEP 552, Deterministic pyc files
PEP 553, Built-in breakpoint()
PEP 557, Data Classes
PEP 560, Core support for typing module and generic types
PEP 562, Customization of access to module attributes
PEP 563, Postponed evaluation of annotations
PEP 564, Time functions with nanosecond resolution
PEP 565, Improved DeprecationWarning handling
PEP 567, Context Variables
Avoiding the use of ASCII as a default text encoding (PEP 538, legacy C locale \ 
coercion and PEP 540, forced UTF-8 runtime mode)
The insertion-order preservation nature of dict objects is now an official part \ 
of the Python language spec.
Notable performance improvements in many areas.
