The UK’s cyber-security agency warned today developers to consider moving Python 2.x codebases to the newer 3.x branch due to the looming end-of-life (EOL) of the Python 2, scheduled for January 1, 2020. The UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) cited security risks and possible code breakage in existing apps as the primary reasons, ZDNet reported.
