I've been reading the "Whats New in ArcGIS" for the ArcGIS 10.3 update and came across the Python and ArcPy portion. It states that:
ArcGIS 10.3 has been upgraded to include Python 2.7.8.
Now this is fine, I have zero issues with any 2.x version of python. My concern is that Esri will eventually push ArcGIS to Python 3x. I hope they don't in the immediate future, but at the same time Python 3x will need to be implemented at some time.
I do a ton of coding in python for all sorts of GIS and non-GIS applications. I always use the version current with my ArcGIS release. If they move to 3x, I'll be spending a solid month doing 2x to 3x upgrading for my applications.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any insider information out there concerning this topic.
Does Esri have any plans in the near future to move to Python 3 or will they continue on with Python 2x?
