Release of IPython 7.25

Hi all,

Last friday of the month, IPython 7.25 was released a few minutes ago, and is now available on PyPI, soon on conda-forge; thanks in advance to Nick Bollweg for keeping an eye on conda-forge.

Only one change !

I think that’s one of the smallest release we had in a long time, the release notes are bigger than the code change, but if you use or plan to use any debug feature directly or indirectly this is highly recommended as the debugger would sometime undo user changes.


You can (and should) upgrade with pip:

pip install ipython --upgrade

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

conda upgrade ipython



conda-forge is updated, should be generally available via CDN within the next hour: had some CI hiccups on some of the more exotic architectures.

Also, of note: we’re hoping to soon have builds for pypy37 on windows! As we’re having to bootstrap ~3k packages, this platform combination will take a while to be generally useful, and sometimes things like numpy will actually be slower, but it may well make interactive computing on That Platform more fun.

Performance stuff aside, PyPy is great for keeping packages honest and not relying on private quirks of the CPython API. To the future :rocket: !
