Hello Florian,

Based on Qt traditions, even if something
is deprecated we tend to provide support for a little bit

So far we haven't discussed how long we will support Python 2.7,
but since last year we have been encouraging people to use Python 3.5+

We will make an announcement as soon as it's decided how long we will
support it.
