What version of Python does Slate Desktop™ use?

Slate Desktop™ has been updated to run with Python version 2.7x and 3.7x. Versions after 3.7x will also be supported.

The Python Foundation has published this announcement:

DEPRECATION: Python 2.7 will reach the end of its life on January 1st, 2020. Please upgrade your Python as Python 2.7 won’t be maintained after that date. A future version of pip will drop support for Python 2.7.

Therefore, all future development with Slate Desktop™ will be Python 3.7 and above.

The Slate Desktop™ installs Python with its installation if it was not found on the PC. It does not, however, uninstall Python.

We strongly urge customers to follow the instructions in this article to uninstall Python 2.7, Uninstall and Deactivate (https://www.slate.rocks/portfolio/uninstall-and-deactivate/). Then, install Slate Desktop™. It will Python is not installed and install the newest version.
