Python 3.6 approaching end-of-life

It does not appear that any Tensorflow wheels are available for any version of Python other than 3.6. Python 3.6 is EOL 23 Dec of this year.

JetPack 5.0 is advertised as using Ubuntu 20.04. 20.04 does not include Python 3.6 at all - in fact, its apt repositories don’t include it. So I suspect JetPack 5 will include Tensorflow wheels for Python 3.7. But according to Jetson Roadmap | NVIDIA Developer , 5.0 doesn’t have production release coming before 2H 2022.

Is there a plan in place for the intervening time - from 23 Dec 2021 until JetPack 5 Release in 2022 - to provide support for a language whose lifecycle has not ended?

Hi,

Thanks for the question.
In general, we provide the package built with default python version.

We are going to discuss this issue internally.
Will share more information with you later.

Thanks.

Hi,

Currently, we build TensorFlow for the default python version.
If other versions are required, you can build it from the source.

Below is an example from the community for your reference:

Thanks.
