Can I reference Python 3.4.3 for use in openCV 3.0Beta? If not what is the latest Python version I can use?

The latest master branch version is being tested with python 3.4.0 (on linux): for example

But there are only 7 tests, while version 2.4 has 80 tests.

Well after a week of effort and prowling the vast information provided by others I was finally able to build openCV 3.0 Beta with Python 3.4.3 with 64 bit versions directly from the Python & openCV sites

My environment is Windows 7 w/ SP1, CMake 3.2.1 and VS2012.

Tips: Not anyone post was found to be 100% accurate and/or match my specific setup - of course. Most confusing was that even though using VS2012: I had to reference VS 2011 2012 Win64 as the compiler in Cmake. I think this enables using the correct Platform Toolset VS 2012 (v110) in the VS setup for the openCV build. Also I had to ref my python3 dirs instead of python2 dirs in CMakes python2 variables definitions or else it would always be built with Python2 for the openCV build even though I had python3 variables defined too. I copied my resulting /install/.. dirs from my target dir for the build over to my Beta3.0\opencv dir. This becomes the pathway dir to ref in VS2012 for subsequent project builds i.e. Additional Include dirs & Additional Library dirs

Obviously I am a Newbie with much to learn!

I did not test with Python 3.4.3 but succeeded with Python 3.4.2-64 bit with latest OpenCV 3.0-beta (on Windows 7 64 bit with VS 2013 update 4) from github. Hope this help.
