Python 3.7.2 was the second bugfix release of Python 3.7.
There are now newer bugfix releases of Python 3.7 that supersede 3.7.2 and Python 3.8 is now the latest feature release of Python 3. Get the latest releases of 3.7.x and 3.8.x here. We plan to continue to provide bugfix releasesfor 3.7.x until mid 2020 and security fixes until mid 2023.
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, andKorean.
- 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 coercionand 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.
Please see What’s New In Python 3.7 for more information.
- PEP 537, 3.7 Release Schedule
- Report bugs at https://bugs.python.org.
- Help fund Python and its community.
- The binaries for AMD64 will also work on processors that implement the Intel 64 architecture. (Also known as the 'x64' architecture, and formerly known as both 'EM64T' and 'x86-64'.)
- There are now 'web-based' installers for Windows platforms; the installer will download the needed software components at installation time.
- There are redistributable zip files containing the Windows builds, making it easy to redistribute Python as part of another software package. Please see the documentation regarding Embedded Distribution for more information.
- UPDATED 2019-01-09: An issue was discovered in the embeddable packages for Windows and updated download files have been provided for the Windows x86-64 embeddable zip file and the Windows x86 embeddable zip file and their GPG signatures. No other download was affected. See https://bugs.python.org/issue35596 for more information.
- For Python 3.7 releases, we provide two binary installer options for download. The default variant is 64-bit-only and works on macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) and later systems. We also continue to provide a 64-bit/32-bit variant that works on all versions of macOS from 10.6 (Snow Leopard) on. Both variants now come with batteries-included versions oF Tcl/Tk 8.6 for users of IDLE and other tkinter-based GUI applications; third-party and system versions of Tcl/Tk are no longer used. Consider using the newer 10.9 64-bit-only installer variant, unless you are building Python applications that also need to work on older macOS systems.
- Both python.org installer variants include private copies of OpenSSL 1.1.0. Please carefully read the Important Information displayed during installation for information about SSL/TLS certificate validation and the Install Certificates.command.

Free Python Games is an Apache2 licensed collection of free Python gamesintended for education and fun. The games are written in simple Python code anddesigned for experimentation and changes. Simplified versions of severalclassic arcade games are included.
Python is one of the top-five most popular programming languages in the worldand available for free from Python.org. Pythonincludes an extensive Standard Library distributed with your installation. TheStandard Library has a module called Turtle which is a popular way to introduceprogramming to kids. Turtle was part of the original Logo programming languagedeveloped by Wally Feurzig and Seymour Papert in 1966. All of the games inFree Python Games are implemented using Python and its Turtle module.
Starting in 2012, Free Python Games began as an after school program toteach programming to inner-city youth. The goal was to have fun as much as itwas to learn. Since then the games have been improved and used in a variety ofsettings ranging from classrooms to summer day-camps.
The games run anywhere Python can be installed which includes desktop computersrunning Windows, Mac OS, or Linux and older or low-power hardware such as theRaspberry Pi. Kids across the United States in grades 6th-12th have enjoyedlearning about topics such as encryption and projectile motion through games.
Each game is entirely independent from the others and includes comments alongwith a list of exercises to work through with students. Creativity andflexibility is important. There is no right or wrong way to implement a newfeature or behavior! You never know which games students will engage with best.
“I love Free Python Games because the games are fun and they’re easy tounderstand and change. I like making my own games now.”
– Luke Martin, Student
“Free Python Games inspired and introduced a new hobby to our son. Thank you somuch for exposing him to coding. He is having so much fun!”
– Mary Lai, Parent
“Free Python Games are great because they really engage students and let themlearn at their own pace.”
– Rick Schertle, Teacher, Steindorf STEAM School
“Free Python Games combines play and learning in a flexible environment thatreduces the stress of a difficult topic like programming.”
– Brett Bymaster, Youth Pastor, The River Church Community
“Free Python Games is great for students, is highly organized and flexible,and seeks to unleash inquiry and understanding.”

Installing Free Python Games is simple with pip:
Free Python Games supports a command-line interface (CLI). Help for the CLI isavailable using:
The CLI supports three commands: list, copy, and show. For a list of all gamesrun:
Any of the listed games may be played by executing the Python module from thecommand-line. To reference the Python module, combine “freegames” with the nameof the game. For example, to play the “snake” game run:
Games can be modified by copying their source code. The copy command willcreate a Python file in your local directory which you can edit. For example,to copy and play the “snake” game run:
Python includes a built-in text editor named IDLE which can also execute Pythoncode. To launch the editor and make changes to the “snake” game run:
You can also access documentation in the interpreter with Python’s built-inhelp function:
