Release of IPython 7.23

Hi all,

Last friday of the month, IPython 7.23 was released recently, and is now available on PyPI, soon on conda-forge; thanks in advance to Nick Bollweg for responding to the conda bots and taking care of all the conda-forge related matters, and many thanks to MrMino who joined us last month and has done a fantastic job responding to user and triaging issues.

new dependency

IPython now depends on matplotlib-inline which extract the inline-backend specific functionalities; it should auto install and is available on conda-forge, but is something to keep in mind if you are managing recipes or distribution packages

what’s new

You can read more about what is new here.


You can (should) upgrade with pip:

pip install ipython --upgrade

And if you are using conda, once available on conda-forge:

conda upgrade ipython

maybe no release next month

I might not be available the last friday for releases; so depending on number of changes we might either skip a month, or release a bit later.


And a 7.23.1 was just publish on PyPI, soon on conda-forge.
