Python 3.6.5 is now available.  3.6.5 is the fifth maintenance release of Python 3.6, which was initially released in 2016-12 to great interest.  You can find Python 3.6.5 and more information here:

See the What’s New In Python 3.6 document for more information about features included in the 3.6 series.  Detailed information about the changes made in 3.6.5 can be found in its change log.  The next maintenance release is expected to follow in about 3 months, around the end of 2018-06.

Attention macOS users: as of 3.6.5, there is a new additional installer variant for macOS 10.9+ that includes a built-in version of Tcl/Tk 8.6.  This variant is expected to become the default variant in future releases.  Check it out!
