Add support for Python 3.9 and 3.10 to cplex & docplex packages (they support a very limited number of Python versions)
Please add support for Python 3.9 and 3.10 to the cplex and docplex Python packages as soon as possible and upload new binary packages (wheels) to the Python Package Index.
The cplex package currently supports Python 3.7 and 3.8. According to the Numpy version support policy (NEP 29, https://numpy.org/neps/nep-0029-deprecation_policy.html), Numpy 1.19 will be the last version to support Python 3.7, and Numpy will drop support for version 1.19 on June 21, 2022. As a practical matter, this means that the latest major releases of some scientific Python packages have already dropped support for Python 3.7 (for example, Astropy 5.0).
If cplex does not add support for Python 3.9 and 3.10 soon, then users of cplex that also need to use up-to-date versions of Numpy and other open-source scientific Python packages will end up in a situation where there is only a single version of Python that is usable with cplex, Python 3.8.
