Hello,

I have a couple of questions about Python versioning with ArcGIS.  Does the Python interpreter get updated with ArcGIS updates, if available?  What is the latest version of Python with the most current ArcGIS update?  I'm behind a few updates so won't know until I update.  I am looking forward to Python 3.10 with match-case functionality.  Thx.

python is at 3.9.11 currently.

What's new in ArcGIS Pro 3.0—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

It will be some time before 3.10 is available for common distribution, as you can see,

Anaconda package lists — Anaconda documentation

 


... sort of retired...

Thx.  Where do you see timing of distributions?

I usually peruse 3.10.5 Documentation (python.org) , Package repository for anaconda :: Anaconda.org and various github sites (eg numpy, scipy).

As for arcpy, that is up to the development team given arcpy's dependency on other packages (eg numpy etc).  I am sure "someone" there is working with python 3.10 and a future arcpy.

Don't forget, they moved from 3.7 to 3.9 (stable distribution), so I suspect 3.10 will roll out when it is final and stable.

As for match_case, there are alternative approaches/implementations if you want to experiment
