Python3 yay (vs. embedded question)

I'm excited about the new python 3 support (among other coming enhancements)! Though I am curious, is there any downside/limitation to using py3 since it's not the "embedded" version?

Keeping the 2.7 support is important for existing scripts out there, but is there any reason we users shouldn't exclusively start using py3?

Hi Gregg,

We do not know of any reason why you would not be able to use Python 3 with SecureCRT 9.0 beta 1 at this time. I recommend taking a look at the following forum post for additional information about running Python 3 with SecureCRT:

My question was less about "being able to", and more about "any reason not to always use py3".

I did do testing with py3 against some pre-releases of 8.8 (now 9) and worked for me.

It sounds like there's no functional limitation to always using py3, or some benefit that might require the embedded py2.

Hi Gregg,

There are pros and cons to each approach. It's your decision.

One benefit of using python 2 and the embedded engine is that you don't have to install a third party python engine.

One benefit of using python 3 is that you don't have to use a version of python that is no longer in active development.
