Python 3.6.12

Release Date: Aug. 17, 2020

Python 3.6.12 was a security fix release of Python 3.6.


There are now newer security-fix releases of Python 3.6 that supersede 3.6.12 and Python 3.9 is now the latest feature release of Python 3. Get the latest releases of 3.6.x and 3.9.x here. Python 3.6.8 was the last bugfix release for 3.6. Python 3.6 is now in the security fix phase of its life cycle. Only security-related issues are accepted and addressed during this phase. We plan to provide security fixes for Python 3.6 as needed through 2021, five years following its initial release. Security fix releases are produced periodically as needed and are source-only releases; binary installers are not provided.
