Log message:
python38 py38-html-docs: updated to 3.8.4

Python 3.8.4 final

Security
bpo-41162: Audit hooks are now cleared later during finalization to avoid \ 
missing events.

asyncio.set_running_loop.
bpo-41252: Fix incorrect refcounting in _ssl.c’s _servername_callback().
bpo-41218: Python 3.8.3 had a regression where compiling with \ 
ast.PyCF_ALLOW_TOP_LEVEL_AWAIT would aggressively mark list comprehension with \ 
CO_COROUTINE. Now only list comprehension making use of async/await will tagged \ 
as so.
bpo-41175: Guard against a NULL pointer dereference within bytearrayobject \ 
triggered by the bytearray() + bytearray() operation.
bpo-39960: The “hackcheck” that prevents sneaking around a type’s \ 
__setattr__() by calling the superclass method was rewritten to allow C \ 
implemented heap types.

Security
bpo-41004: The __hash__() methods of ipaddress.IPv4Interface and \ 
ipaddress.IPv6Interface incorrectly generated constant hash values of 32 and 128 \ 
respectively. This resulted in always causing hash collisions. The fix uses \ 
hash() to generate hash values for the tuple of (address, mask length, network \ 
address).
bpo-39073: Disallow CR or LF in email.headerregistry.Address arguments to guard \ 
against header injection attacks.

-c. (discovered via Coverity)
bpo-35975: Stefan Behnel reported that cf_feature_version is used even when \ 
PyCF_ONLY_AST is not set. This is against the intention and against the \ 
documented behavior, so it’s been fixed.
bpo-40957: Fix refleak in _Py_fopen_obj() when PySys_Audit() fails
bpo-40870: Raise ValueError when validating custom AST’s where the constants \ 
True, False and None are used within a ast.Name node.

by TypeError in the in operator and functions contains(), indexOf() and \ 
countOf() of the operator module.

after writing them.
bpo-41058: pdb.find_function() now correctly determines the source file encoding.

bpo-40807: Stop codeop._maybe_compile, used by code.InteractiveInterpreter (and \ 
IDLE). from from emitting each warning three times.

systems by checking the WAYLAND_DISPLAY environment variable. Patch contributed \ 
by Jérémy Attali.
bpo-40795: ctypes module: If ctypes fails to convert the result of a callback or \ 
if a ctypes callback function raises an exception, sys.unraisablehook is now \ 
called with an exception set. Previously, the error was logged into stderr by \ 
PyErr_Print().
bpo-30008: Fix ssl code to be compatible with OpenSSL 1.1.x builds that use \ 
no-deprecated and --api=1.1.0.

Group recommendation for HDF5 formatted data files. Patch contributed by Mark \ 
Schwab.

incoming connections.
bpo-40055: distutils.tests now saves/restores warnings filters to leave them \

line. Patch contributed by Rick Heil.
bpo-41100: Fix configure error when building on macOS 11. Note that the current \
