[Python-Dev] [python-committers] IMPORTANT - final 3.7.0 beta cutoff!


I modified the behaviour of the socketserver module: ThreadingMixIn
now waits until all threads complete and ForkingMixIn now waits until
all child processes complete


I was supposed to do something, like add an option to at least opt-in
for the old behaviour, but I didn't have the bandwidth to work on
these issues.

Python 3.7 may be shipped with the new behavior and no option to get
the old behaviour (stop immediately, don't wait for
threads/processes). Any volunteer to work on these issues?

> is the final beta planned for 3.7.0. After tomorrow, the next planned
> release is the 3.7.0 release candidate, on 2018-05-21, for final
> testing. Our goal is to have no changes between the release candidate

> released in 3.7.1. Between now and the rc1 cutoff, please
> double-check that there are no critical problems outstanding and that
> documentation for new features in 3.7 is complete (including NEWS and
> What's New items), and that 3.7 is getting exposure and tested with
> our various platorms and third-party distributions and applications.
> Also, during the time leading up to the release candidate, we will be
> completing the What's New in 3.7 document.
> As noted before, the ABI for 3.7.0 was frozen as of 3.7.0b3. You
> should now be treating the 3.7 branch as if it were already released
> and in maintenance mode. That means you should only push the kinds of
> changes that are appropriate for a maintenance release:
> non-ABI-changing bug and feature fixes and documentation updates. If
> you find a problem that requires an ABI-altering or other significant
> user-facing change (for example, something likely to introduce an
> incompatibility with existing users' code or require rebuilding of
> user extension modules), please make sure to set the b.p.o issue to
> "release blocker" priority and describe there why you feel the change
> is necessary. If you are reviewing PRs for 3.7 (and please do!), be
> on the lookout for and flag potential incompatibilities (we've all
> made them).
> Thanks again for all of your hard work towards making 3.7.0 yet
> another great release - coming to a website near you on 06-15!
