Python 3.8 gets a heck of a lot closer by putting the relevant typing module in the standard library, so you can leverage it much more easily. That being said... the biggest thing Python needs right now is architectural improvements in multiprocessing. So many things people do with Python benefit from multiple cores, and Python can't yet take full advantage of them.

In order to take advantage of multi core, it seems that Python developers often use native binding libraries like Cython and hardly take use of the multiprocessing package. For IO bound applications, asyncio is usually the solution.
