Re: Python 2.x discontinued in Ubuntu 16.04by
Ubuntu 16.04 still has and supports python 2.7, it's just not installed by default.
Apt-get install python.
It is absolutely still supported, not sure where you got your quote from.
When will Odoo be available for Python 3.0?Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is based on the long-term supported Linux kernel release series 4.4.
In addition to the update from OpenSSH to version 7.2p2, APT and Python 3 have been upgraded. Therefore support for Python 2 is being discontinued.
In the new OpenSSH version, DSA keys that are considered insecure and the 1024-bit diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 key exchange are disabled by default. Both of these can be re-enabled if explicitly requested.
OpenStack has been updated to the "Mitaka" release, PHP has been upgraded to 7.0, and MySQL has been advanced to version 5.7.
