Python 3.7 support and remote build are now generally available
Updated: 05 November, 2019
Announcing some enhancements to the development experience for Python workloads in Azure Functions, including support for Python 3.7 and remote build. Remote build is now the default for Python functions apps (on top of Linux hosting), and it provides a seamless and simpler experience by automatically handling OS native dependencies for Python applications.
You can now develop, debug and deploy function apps using Python 3.7, the Azure Functions Core Tools and Visual Studio Code (portal experience coming soon). With remote build now being the default, you now don’t need to worry about correctly packaging your Python apps with OS native dependencies manually, as it is done automatically by our platform.
