    The beta 2 release of Python 2.7.12 for z/OS is no longer available. Instead there is now a beta 3 release of python 2.7.13 and a beta 1 release of python 3.6.1 (see other post).

    Python 2.7.13

    To unpack this distribution:

    gzip -d -c python-2017-04-12-py27.tar.gz | tar xoUXf -

    Then follow instructions in PYTHON_README.ZOS.
    This release fixes the following:

    · SciPy and many other math, science, graphics and other packages are now included
    · File tags are now heeded when reading text files

    The links are not working (Java NPE).

    I’m looking into this. The links have expired, and I’m checking on the status of this beta (in particular, do we have an update, or is this still what you should be downloading).

    Announcing release of Python 2.7.13 beta 3. I edited the original post because the beta2 release is no longer available and I did not want people trying bad download links. See top post in this thread or go to Rocket Corporate web site for download.

    See also beta 1 release of python 3.6 in another post.

    Note, multi-processing is still not supported in either python 2 or python 3 ports. It will be supported first in python 3 beta 3 (expected in late May).
