ESP-IDF is dropping support for the unmaintained Python 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5 versions. ESP-IDF v4.4 will support Python 3.6 or newer. Please be ready for the upgrade.
The Windows Tools Installer (https://dl.espressif.com/dl/esp-idf/?idf=4.4) installs a suitable Python for quite some time. The tool can be re-run if necessary for setting up a suitable environment. You can select an existing ESP-IDF to continue work on the same project.
A suitable Python can be installed with MacPorts or Homebrew as outlined in the documentation: https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp ... g-python-3
You can check that the Python package which comes with your distribution (https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp ... requisites) is sufficient by running the following command:
Code: Select all
We hope that this step will make the package management easier and our customers will have better user experience. We are sorry for any inconvenience this upgrade might cause. Please report any issues here on the forums or in the issue tracker (https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/issues).
