Install Python 3.4.1 in Ubuntu 14.04

Python is a dynamic, strongly typed, object oriented, multipurpose programming language, designed to be quick (to learn, to use, and to understand), to integrate your systems more effectively and to enforce a clean and uniform syntax


Python 3.4 includes a range of improvements of the 3.x series, including hundreds of small improvements and bug fixes

  • A “pathlib” module providing object-oriented filesystem paths
  • A standardized “enum” module
  • A build enhancement that will help generate introspection information for builtins
  • Improved semantics for object finalization
  • Adding single-dispatch generic functions to the standard library
  • A new C API for implementing custom memory allocators
  • Changing file descriptors to not be inherited by default in subprocesses
  • A new “statistics” module
  • Standardizing module metadata for Python’s module import system
  • A bundled installer for the pip package manager
  • A new “tracemalloc” module for tracing Python memory allocations
  • A new hash algorithm for Python strings and binary data
  • A new and improved protocol for pickled objects
  • A new “asyncio” module, a new framework for asynchronous I/O
