Python 2 SupportΒΆ

Python 2 and pydicom

pydicom dropped support for Python 2 following the 1.4.X versions.

  • pydicom v2.0 (planned for ~April 2020) will be Python 3.5+ only

  • pydicom v2.1 (no date set) will be Python 3.6+

We may consider the possibility of backporting some fixes to pydicom v1.4 for very serious issues, if users make the case for it. Generally speaking, however, we encourage all pydicom users to make the transition to Python 3 by early 2020.
