Release: IPython Parallel 8

We’ve just published IPython Parallel 8.

This is a small release compared to the recent 7.0, but introduces some nice new things, such as greatly improved feedback for partial errors, so you can see when one engine fails immediately (especially useful when the rest of your engines are stuck in an MPI Barrier and aren’t ever going to finish), refinements to the new Cluster API, support for setting environment variables in Launchers, fixes for PBS launchers broken in 7.0, and improved consistency with other Executor implementations.

More in the changelog.

Thanks to Bodo for supporting my time on IPython Parallel this year, and all the folks who’ve been testing and giving feedback on the new features.
