Python 2.7.9rc1

Release Date: Nov. 26, 2014

Python 2.7.9rc1 is the first release candidate for the next bugfix version of the Python 2.7 series. Python 2.7.9 will include several significant changes unprecedented in a "bugfix" release:

  • The entirety of Python 3.4's ssl module has been backported for Python 2.7.9. See PEP 466 for justification.
  • HTTPS certificate validation using the system's certificate store is now enabled by default. See PEP 476 for details.
  • SSLv3 has been disabled by default due to the POODLE attack.
  • The ensurepip module module has been backported, which provides the pip package manager in every Python 2.7 installation. See PEP 477.
