We have some security content, and plenty of regular bug fixes for 3.10. Let’s 
dive right in.

Converting between int and str in bases other than 2 (binary), 4, 8 (octal), 16 
(hexadecimal), or 32 such as base 10 (decimal) now raises a ValueError 
 if the number of digits in string form is above a limit to avoid potential 
denial of service attacks due to the algorithmic complexity.

Security releases for 3.9.14, 3.8.14, and 3.7.14 are made available 
simultaneously to address this issue, along with some less urgent security 

Upgrading your installations is highly recommended.

Get it here:


This bugfix version of Python was released out-of-schedule to address the CVE, 
and as such contains a smaller number of changes compared to 3.10.6 (200 
commits), or in fact 3.9.7 (187 commits) at the same stage of the release cycle 
a year ago. But there’s still over a 100 commits in this latest Python version 
so it’s worth checking out the change log 

now for something completely different

In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle (also known as Heisenberg’s 
uncertainty principle) is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities 
asserting a fundamental limit to the accuracy with which the values for certain 
pairs of physical quantities of a particle, such as position and momentum or 
the time and the energy can be predicted from initial conditions.

Such variable pairs are known as complementary variables or canonically 
conjugate variables; and, depending on interpretation, the uncertainty 
principle limits to what extent such conjugate properties maintain their 
approximate meaning, as the mathematical framework of quantum physics does not 
support the notion of simultaneously well-defined conjugate properties 
expressed by a single value.

The uncertainty principle implies that it is in general not possible to predict 
the value of a quantity with arbitrary certainty, even if all initial 
conditions are specified.
