You mean feature-wise, or do you mean "use more modern SSL libraries"??
IIUC Windows doesn't use the system-provided SSL libraries, *and* 2.7 is
built with a nasty old compiler.? It's entirely possible that on Windows
2.7 *can't* use current SSL libraries because they won't build under
said nasty old compiler.
