Hi all,

We've just put up a release candidate for pydicom 2.0.  This version is for Python 3.5+ only; Python 2 is no longer supported.

There are a number of significant changes, additions and bug fixes, so please see the release notes at

Let us know through the pydicom issues list if you experience any problems.  The final release should come within a week if all goes well.

I forgot to mention that to install a pre-release, you need the "--pre" argument to pip:

pip install --pre pydicom

The official pydicom 2.0.0 release is now on PyPi, ready for the standard `pip install`.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed code, documentation, or issues.


P.S.: If you'd like another way to say "thank you - keep up the good work", there is now a Sponsor button on my github profile and on the pydicom github page
There are some perks for sponsors too, so please have a look if you are interested.  It's totally optional, but may help me spend more of my time on open source.
