Python 3.8 support is deprecated

Change effective on 08 December 2023

Python 3.8 is due to reach its scheduled upstream end-of-life in October 2024. As such, Python 3.8 support on Heroku is now deprecated.

Apps using Python 3.8 will continue to build for now, however, a warning will be shown in the build log. On December 4th, 2024, support for Python 3.8 will be removed from the Python buildpack.

We recommend upgrading to a newer Python version as soon as possible, to ensure your app both remains secure and can also benefit from the many performance improvements found in newer versions of Python.
