FreeBSD Python version

Can you please tell me what standard version of Python comes with the latest FreeBSD?
And also, is it possible to upgrade to a newer version without breaking other functionalities?

I am asking because more and more scripts require at least Python 2.5, whereas CentOS for example only comes with 2.4.3, and it's pretty much impossible to upgrade the system Python without breaking yum and things like that.

Many thanks.

Best regards,
