Dropping Python 2 support

Hello,

On April 1, 2020, we plan to remove support for Girder running on Python 2.7. At that time:

  • The minimum version of Python that Girder will support is Python 3.6.
  • We will tag and publish a minor release that downstreams can pin to if they require more time to migrate.
  • We will disable automated testing with Python 2 as part of our CI process.
  • New code changes that contain Python 3+ language features will be allowed.

Thanks,

-The Girder support team

The changes to drop Python 2 support have officially landed in master. Prior to merging it, we published a final release of Girder that will support Python 2.7, which is version 3.1.0.

Thanks,
