Python 2.7 and vs2008 Deprecation

  • Python 2.7 is no longer supported by the upstream developers as of 2020-01-01. Conda-forge is thus deprecating its Python 2.7 support. Conda-forge will provide no ongoing support for Python 2.7 builds and any existing builds are provided on an "as-is" basis.
  • A cf202003 label has been applied to the conda-forge channel for those who need a reference to the package index with Python 2.7.
  • We are removing support for vs2008 on Windows in conjunction with the deprecation of Python 2.7, as it was only supported to build this version of Python.
  • We will provide an admin command that will add back Python 2.7 to any feedstock. Note that as stated above, we cannot provide support for any Python 2.7 builds generated with this admin command. Further, this admin command will only work on osx-64 and linux-64 platforms.
