Hi All,

After countless internal discussions, and discussions with studios and technology partners, the decision has been made to drop Python 2 support in the upcoming Houdini release.

Python 2 reached end-of-life back in January, 2020:
https://www.python.org/doc/sunset-python-2/ [www.python.org]

The next Houdini version will provide only Python 3 builds, in particular Python 3.7 and 3.9 builds as per the VFX Reference Platform (http://vfxplatform.com/).

Note that we will continue to publish Python 2 builds for Houdini 19.0.

Cheers,
Rob
