AWS Glue has upgraded its serverless Python Shell jobs to add Python 3.9 support and an updated bundle of pre-loaded libraries. These jobs allow you to write complex data integration and analytics jobs in pure Python.

AWS Glue Python Shell jobs now offer 19 common analytics libraries out of the box, including Pandas, NumPy, and AWS Data Wrangler. AWS Glue also updated its existing libraries to newer versions that deliver bug fixes and performance enhancements. Customers can use the bundled functionality to connect to a variety of databases, data warehouses, and AWS services. They can also load more libraries at runtime, including high-performance libraries written in C.

This upgrade is available in the same AWS Regions as AWS Glue. To learn more, visit our documentation and read our blog post.
