Python 3.6 End of Support
An important note for you is that, in this edition, Anaconda will no longer be building Python 3.6 packages in its default repository. Now they will fully support Python 3.9, and are beginning to build out Python 3.10.
For the latest announcements of significant changes to Anaconda’s package repositories, including dropping Python 3.6 builds, have a look here.
Anaconda now release a new Navigator – version 2.1.1. In this latest edition, there are a few changes to handling environments, including creating, importing, and backing-up, as well as a critical bug fix in the ‘Create new environment’ window, which now shows all Python and R versions available in configured repository channels.
Since the previous version of Navigator, version 2.1.0, Anaconda has added many functionality related to your Anaconda Nucleus account. First, they added Connect dropdown menu and there you will see the option to log into a repository and your Anaconda Nucleus account by clicking ‘sign in’ button. It’s very convenient.
Another big new environments feature that applies is the ability to back-up and import environments to local files or to Anaconda Nucleus. For more details on using the new environment back-up and import capability, please refer to this blog post.
Finally, with Anaconda Navigator 2.1.1, Anaconda has fixed a number of bugs and have improved the experience in a few key areas:
- Anaconda Team Edition– A number of issues raised by users have been resolved and the overall functionality with Team Edition has been improved
- Third-party Applications– Launching and staying in sync with the status of apps like VS Code, Jupyter, PyCharm, and others is now greatly improved
- App performance– Anaconda is working on making Navigator faster, so launch speed has been improved in this release
