Python 3.6 is the default in Anaconda 4.3, and you should update to or download Anaconda 4.3.
If you already have Anaconda 4.2 installed, upgrade to Anaconda 4.3 by
conda install anaconda=4.3
If you get package conflict errors, you might just move your existing Anaconda directory to a backup location, and reinstall Anaconda/Miniconda from scratch.
Everything is supported in Python 3.6
Everything that I use is supported in Python 3.6 e.g.
conda install matplotlib spyder scipy jupyter
manually add Python 3.6 to Anaconda/Miniconda 4.2
You don’t need the procedure below anymore, just download/upgrade to Anaconda 4.3
conda create -n py36 python=3.6 source activate py36
You can persistently use Python 3.6 in Anaconda 4.2 by adding to your
source activate py36
