Re: V14, python version

What do you think about freezing a specific python version for each odoo version? Or at least make it the recommended python version on which all the builds will run.

  • Odoo 14: python  3.8.5
  • Odoo 13: python 3.7.9
  • ...
This can be achieved by using pyenv-virtualenv.

BTW, thanks Stéphane for all your late efforts and courage facing the avalanche of tough feedback. I admire both your contributions and communications.

I've not looked into the cases you mentioned yet, but I note Odoo declares itself as supporting python 3.6:

That's why the OCA 14.0 branches have been created for python 3.6 too.

Hi all,

The last very stable python is 3.8 (first version in November 2019), 3.8.6 in September 2020

Odoo 14.0 released in October supports python 3.7 and upper but that's not without consequence

We can ask ourself what is the benefit to support 3.7.

If yes, we have to deal with this kind of code in our OCA 14.0 module like here

Maybe there is a better way to manage this version incompatibility but if not
it can be difficult to ensure 3.7 compatibility in our modules

Without this compatibility code we have this kind of error

Are you really sure that supports 3.7 is good thing for our client in a fresh new project 14.0 while python 3.8 is very stable ?

Even in debian targeted version we may upgrade to 3.8

What do you think ?
