Python 3.12.3 and 3.13.0a6 released

It’s time to eclipse the Python 3.11.9 release with two releases, one of which is the very last alpha release of Python 3.13:


Python 3.12.3

300+ of the finest commits went into this latest maintenance release of the latest Python version, the most stablest, securest, bugfreeest we could make it.

Python 3.13.0a6

What’s that? The last alpha release? Just one more month until feature freeze! Get your features done, get your bugs fixed, let’s get 3.13.0 ready for people to actually use! Until then, let’s test with alpha 6. The highlights of 3.13 you ask? Well:

(Hey, fellow core developer, if a feature you find important is missing from this list, let Thomas know. It’s getting to be really important now!)

We hope you enjoy the new releases!

Thanks to all of the many volunteers who help make Python Development and these releases possible! Please consider supporting our efforts by volunteering yourself, or through contributions to the Python Software Foundation or CPython itself.
