How to install the latest version of Python on Ubuntu

Python is developed as an object-oriented programming language which has dynamic semantics making use of built-in high-level data structures, these can be used with dynamic writing so that application development is fully functional but without resorting to large codes, Python supports modules and packages which increases program modularity and code usability..


Python Features
We currently have version 3.11 of Python which offers us features such as:


  • This new version is about 10 to 60% faster than Python 3.10
  • TOML parsing support in the Standard Library
  • New -P command line option in environment variable
  • It is now possible to mark individual TypedDict elements as required or not required
  • Detailed error locations in traces
  • New modules have been added
