Deprecated Python environments¶
Since several years, we are offering Python environments on Mistral. Many of them are not updated any more and should not be used for new development. However, older scripts may rely on these environments and the versions of their installed packages.
To discourage their use while still keeping them available, we will rename some modules next Monday, November 15, 2021, from
anaconda2/bleeding_edge anaconda3/bleeding_edge python/2.7-ve0 python/2.7.12 python/3.5.2
anaconda2/.bleeding_edge anaconda3/.bleeding_edge python/.2.7-ve0 python/.2.7.12 python/.3.5.2
Notice the dot in the module name. The renamed modules will not be listed with module avail but they can still be loaded and show the same behavior as before, e.g.
module load anaconda3/.bleeding_edge
Recommended Python environments For new developments, we recommend using only the Python environment
In this environment we will still install new packages if available. However, since many of the most recent conda packages do not support Mistral’s RHEL6 operating system, you may have to settle for a slightly older version.
Frozen environments which only receive security updates continue to exist for legacy scripts.
