All Shotgun desktop applications updated to Python 3

Oct 27, 2020



The Shotgun team has updated all of our desktop applications to Python 3, allowing us to remain compliant with the VFX Reference Platform. The ecosystem is aligned and we’ll continue providing updates as issues are found.

We’ll maintain both Python 2 and 3 in our builds for the foreseeable future, with an environment variable to switch, and will communicate a deprecation strategy for Python 2 as soon as we have one.
