The python nuget feed here,, has a lot of the versions post 3.5. However, it is missing some bug fix and security fix versions. For example, it has no versions after 3.6.8, which had security fixes until 3.6.12.

Is there a specific reason for excluding these? I can't tell any pattern related to security or bug fix versions for each of the minor versions.

Python 3.6.9 and later were source-only security fix releases. We don't provide *any* binary releases for those versions, the nuget distribution is no different in that respect.

The release schedule for Python 3.6 is at There are similar PEPs for the release schedules of other versions.

Thanks Paul. I was confused by the 3.7.9 version on the feeds since it is a security fix version, but didn't do a more through check.

Python 3.7.9 was a special case, as mentioned on the download page:
