I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere on this forum nor on the Web in general: to what extent does Ardour use Python and which version of Python is which version of Ardour compatible with?
The official build instructions say
You will need Python version 2.6 or later installed, does that mean it’s also Python 3 compatible? If so, how long has this been the case, since what version?
The Gentoo ebuilds are latest for 5.12 and a live git repo ebuild, both have Python compat 2.7 only.
Ardour uses Python as part of the WAF build system to build it. This has been the case since… oh probably A3 or so, and before that used Scons. It is not used in the operation of Ardour.
I believe this should be both Py2 and Py3 compatible but can’t remember specifically to be sure off hand.
And have confirmed, Ardour’s version of WAF is compatible with Py3.
