Hello,

 

It could be great to increase the supported Python version of the future Arcgis Pro version.

Indeed a lot of major opensource libraries are dropping support of Python 3.7 (since december 2021 for numpy for example)

 

Best Regards,

This issue was raised in the beta for 2.9.

For reasons not divulged, 3.7 was the go to.

Things are looking upon the esri-build :: Anaconda.org site, for arcpy 3.0, but it looks like they are only going to go as far as python 3.9, so at least we will get the walrus and the improvements to numpy and other packages

Do you know if 2.10 will have a newer version of Python ? And if so, do they will use 3.8 or directly 3.9 ?

I can confirm that ArcGIS Pro 3.0 is planned to include Python 3.9.

ArcGIS Pro 3.0 uses Python 3.9.11. 

See Ideas in ArcGIS Pro 3.0  to see this and all of the other ideas you can look forward to when you upgrade.

Also be sure to check out the What's New documentation: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/get-started/whats-new-in-arcgis-pro.htm

Onward to python 3.10 .... whenever Anaconda updates 😉
