Python 3

are you planning upgrade python to version 3? Info from official python site: “Python 2.x is legacy, Python 3.x is the present and future of the language”… Python 2 ends on 1.1.2020, see Now is right time to upgrade.

Just installed Volumio 2.729 and it still looks like only Python2 is supported.

Any plans to move to python3 ?

We are working on update the whole Volumio OS to buster, this will include python3

The current version has Python 2.7.9. Any chance the team will be updating to python 3 version >=3.5? I’ve tried add v3.5.2 as an alternative to support dsptools for the last week unsuccessfully. I need this for supporting the DSP on the Hifiberry DAC+ DSP board on RPi 4.

Hve you tried this?

sudo apt-get update

install Python 3.5.2

sudo apt-get install -y build-essential libc6-dev libbz2-dev libexpat1-dev liblzma-dev zlib1g-dev libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev libreadline6-dev libdb5.3-dev libgdbm-dev libsqlite3-dev libssl-dev


tar -zxvf Python-3.5.2.tgz

cd Python-3.5.2


make -j4

sudo make install


sudo rm -fr ./Python-3.5.2*

Check Python Version:

python3 --version

pip3 -v

If python3 != 3.5.2, set symlink:

alias python3=python3.5

Works fine for me…
