I'm interested to know whether Odoo will be transitioning towards python 3.0+ in Odoo 9.0/Master or whether the plan is to stick with python 2.7+ in the foreseable future. I will be beginning to learn Python in earnest soon and i'm wondering whether I should learn 2.7 or 3+ as there seems to be some significant differences between the two. major versions.
I'd also be interested to know why so many established projects like Odoo, Django, etc. choose Python 2.7+ over 3.0+. Is this due to the number of python projects that are Odoo/Django dependencies that have not yet been updated to the 3+ branch, or is there some other reason?
I am not part of the development team for Odoo, so I cannot speak for them but I think 2.X will be here for the near future. 3.0 Has some very different syntax and not all the libraries that are used with Odoo have been ported to 3.0 variants yet, so it would be quite a job to port.
Perhaps anyone from Odoo can shed some light on the matter?
