Move from Python 3.6 to Python 3.7 for Azure Functions v2
On python.org, the release notes for the latest 3.6.8 release state:
Python 3.6.8 is planned to be the last bugfix release for 3.6.x. Following the release of 3.6.8, we plan to provide security fixes for Python 3.6 as needed through 2021, five years following its initial release.
It seems weird to choose a Python version branch for Azure Functions that will not receive any more bugfix releases ever.
Can the Python version be bumped to 3.7 to fix that?
Thank you for your feedback. We’re currently working on building support for the advanced features introduced in Python version 3.7 (e.g. enabling you to leverage data classes for triggers and bindings).
We plan to release this soon after the GA milestone.
