Release of IPython 7.26

Hi all,

Slightly before the monday following last friday of the month (except you maybe Kiwis always in the future) , IPython 7.26.0 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.

A bit more changes this month – nothing critical

We cleaned up some included code that was CC-BY-SA and not compatible with our licence. It should make this specific code path faster as well.

Better integration with Jupyterlight.

And a couple of other changes, please see the what’s new on readthedocs


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

Many thanks to MrMino for wrangling all of that, this month it felt like I was only needed to do the actual release.


PR’s up, but I’ll be away from keys for much of the day.

I’ve optimistically taken off the migrating for all builds, but we might still be impacted by the win/pypy37 migration for some test dependencies. Guess we’ll see :crossed_fingers: !

This was the case, and we needed a new test skip for some embedding tests on pypy, but it’s merged up, and should be available on the CDN within the hour for all platforms (barring flake). Thanks again, all!
