Binary compatibility across Python versions?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Philip Semanchuk, Jul 26, 2010.

  1. Hi all,
    Does Python guarantee binary compatibility across major, minor and/or
    micro versions? I looked through the docs and even with Google's help
    I wasn't able to find any official statements on this subject.


    Specifically, I'm concerned with binaries created by SWIG for a C++
    library that our project uses. We'd like to ship precompiled binaries
    for Linux, OS X and Windows for Python 2.5 and 2.6. I'm hoping that it
    is sufficient to create binaries for each Python for each platform (3
    * 2 == 6 total precompiled binaries).

    Thanks for any advice and pointers to official documentation on the
    subject.

    Cheers
    Philip
