Fedora 31 was published very recently and already the project's developers are looking ahead to improvements they can make in Fedora 32. One of the interesting changes on the horizon is producing a static build of Python 3, which could offer significant performance improvements. Ben Cotton explains: "Python 3 traditionally in Fedora was built with a shared library libpython3.?.so and the final binary was dynamically linked against that shared library. This change is about creating the static library and linking the final python3 binary against it, as it provides significant performance improvement, up to 27% depending on the workload. The static library will not be shipped. The shared library will continue to exist in a separate subpackage. In essence, python3 will no longer depend on libpython." Cotton mentions this change has already taken place in Debian and Ubuntu.
