Python 3.7.8 and 3.6.11 now available - last 3.7.x bugfix release

Python 3.7.8, the next bugfix release of Python 3.7, is now available. You can find the release files, a link to the changelog, and more information here:
Note that Python 3.8 is now the latest feature release series of Python 3. After two years of quarterly 3.7.x bugfix releases and with the successful release and adoption of Python 3.8 over the last year, 3.7.8 is expected to be the last bugfix release in the 3.7 series. You should consider upgrading to 3.8 as soon as practical. Get the latest release of 3.8.x here.

Following our release support policy, after 3.7.8 we plan to provide security fixes for 3.7 as needed until mid-year 2023, five years after its initial release. More details are available in PEP 537, the Python 3.7 Release Schedule.

In addition to 3.7.8, the lastest security fix rollup for Python 3.6, 3.6.11, is also now available.  You can download its source release here:
