Python 2.7 Support

Eliot supports Python 2.7 as of release 1.7. However, Eliot will drop support for Python 2 in an upcoming release (probably 1.8 or 1.9).

If you are using Eliot with Python 2, keep the following in mind:

  • I will provide critical bug fixes for Python 2 for one year after the last release supporting Python 2.7. I will accept patches for critical bug fixes after that (or you can pay for my services to do additional work).
  • Make sure you use an up-to-date setuptools and pip; in theory this should result in only downloading versions of the package that support Python 2.
  • For extra safety, you can pin Eliot in or requirements.txt by setting: eliot < 1.8.

For example, if it turns out 1.8 is the last version that supports Python 2:

  • 1.8 will only support Python 3.
  • Critical bug fixes for Python 2 will be released as 1.8.1, 1.8.2, etc..

I will update this page once I know the final release where Python 2 is supported.
