I see it in the news that the default python interpreter is now python3.
I have python 3.7.0 installed on my windows system (using default install parameters), my understanding is that the default configuration system call is just 'python':
after a pkg update, I get:
>> pkg load symbolic >> syms b 'python3' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Symbolic pkg v2.9.0: error: Cannot run the Python executable "python3" Try "sympref diagnose" for more information. error: called from assert_have_python_and_sympy at line 61 column 7 python_ipc_popen2 at line 79 column 5 python_ipc_driver at line 62 column 15 pycall_sympy__ at line 163 column 11 valid_sym_assumptions at line 38 column 10 assumptions at line 82 column 7 syms at line 97 column 13 >> system('python3') 'python3' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. ans = 1 >> system('python') Python 3.7.0 (v3.7.0:1bf9cc5093, Jun 27 2018, 04:06:47) [MSC v.1914 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>>
I assume the python-bundle for windows will be just fine. But anyone with a windows python install using the base package is going to need to make a change somewhere after updating to 2.9.0, (assuming my setup isn't unique)

what OS are you on? I believe the Python community recommends the
binary be called "python3".
At least on Fedora, there was quite an effort to not have software
calling "python" but rather specify python2 or python3...
Windows 10. Used the vanilla Python installer for 3.7. realize stable is now 3.9.1 but I'm on a managed system so I'm out of date .not sure if that change was made for windows.
