Support for Python versions#

Starting with Salt version 3006, the Salt Project aligns with the Python support lifecycle, which means that Salt supports the same versions of Python that are supported by the Python Software Foundation.

Currently supported versions#

Salt 3005 requires Python 3.5 or higher.

Future supported versions#

Salt 3006 requires Python 3.7 or higher.

Python 3.5 and 3.6 deprecation notice#

Salt 3005 is the last release that supports Python versions 3.5 and 3.6. In Salt release 3006, only Python versions 3.7 and higher will be supported.
