I am planning to make new release of python ibm_db driver and I wanted to know the stable versions of python beyond python 3.6.

I can see python 3.8 marked as "in development" and I do read that python 3.7.0b4 is the final planned beta release preview. Would this mean that I cannot consider python 3.7 and python 3.8 for my next release and I would build only when these are marked stable.

Thank you!

We have just updated the release schedule for Python 3.7 to include 3.7.0b5, now available.  The 3.7.0 release candidate is now planned for 2018-06-11 with 3.7.0 final to follow on 2018-06-27.  We expect 3.7.0 to be adopted quickly but 3.6.x will be still supported for some time in the major distributions.  Python 3.8 is now in the early stages of development, with a final release currently planned for 2019-10 although that may change.  Information about current Python release plans are contained in and kept up-to-date in their respective PEPs:
