Splunk DB connect 3.2.0 compatibility with python 3


Is Splunk db connect 3.2.0 version is compatible with python 3 on Splunk version 8.0.1?
Since I am getting below error while saving JAVA_HOME path with jre8

a bytes-like object is required, not 'str'

But if I change version to python 2 then I am able to store JAVA_HOME path without any error.
Please help.
