The Bot Framework Python and Java SDKs are being retired with final long-term support ending in November 2023. Only critical security and bug fixes within this repository will be undertaken. Existing bots built with these SDKs will continue to function.

For new bot development, consider using Power Virtual Agents. For more information, see The future of bot building.
