import concurrent.futures 
import time 

start = time.perf_counter()

def do_something(seconds):
    print(f'sleeping for {seconds}s ... ')
    return f'done sleeping {seconds} '

with concurrent.futures.ThreadPoolExecutor() as executor: 

    secs = [5,4,3,2,1]
    results =, secs)

    for result in results: 

finish = time.perf_counter()

print(f'finished in {round(finish-start, 2)} seconds')

The above code yields an attribute error whereas it used to execute perfectly before. Did the method get removed?

I get no attribute error with this code in 3.9 or 3.10.

Please see attached. I have printed out the python version. Running this on VS code.

I was also unable to replicate on any of 3.7-3.11, including 3.9.6. Is it possible that one of your Python stdlib source files was modified? Does this still happen with a fresh install of Python?

Does your problem still happen if you run the file using a python executable directly rather than using IPython/Jupyter? If it's just a problem with Jupyter, this bug report belongs there.

Can you run:

>>> from concurrent.futures import ThreadPoolExecutor as TPE
>>> TPE.__mro__
(<class 'concurrent.futures.thread.ThreadPoolExecutor'>, <class 'concurrent.futures._base.Executor'>, <class 'object'>)
>>> TPE.__mro__[1]
<class 'concurrent.futures._base.Executor'>
>>> dir(TPE.__mro__[1])
