Release highlights

New syntax features: 

  • global or nonlocal statement must now textually appear before the first use of the affected name in the same scope. Previously this was a SyntaxWarning.
  • PEP 498: Formatted string literals
  • PEP 515: Underscores in Numeric Literals
  • PEP 526: Syntax for Variable Annotations
  • PEP 525: Asynchronous Generators
  • PEP 530: Asynchronous Comprehensions

Security improvements: 

  • On Linux, os.urandom() now blocks until the system urandom entropy pool is initialized to increase the security. See the PEP 524for the rationale.
  • hashlib and ssl now support OpenSSL 1.1.0.
  • The default settings and feature set of the ssl have been improved.
  • The hashlib module has got support for BLAKE2, SHA-3 and SHAKE hash algorithms and scrypt() key derivation function.

 Windows improvements:

The next planned release of Python 3.6 will be 3.6.0b2, currently scheduled for 2016-10-03.
