Release of IPython 7.4.0

Hi all,

IPython 7.4 was released a few moments ago, and is now available on PyPI, and will be on conda-forge in a couple of hours.
You can update with

pip install ipython --upgrade

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

conda upgrade ipython

This release brings a couple of bug fixes and new features. You can read the what’s new section of the documentation to learn more about the new features and bug fixes.

This release was a team effort as always. The biggest update to this release is the addition of Unicode Name Completion \LAT<tab> that should ease the insertion of special characters.

If you are looking to help for future 7.5 release, subscribe to this issue, it will be updated with things you can help with. It is a great way to get started contributing. By following the issue, I was able to release IPython 7.4.0.

Thank you @carreau for your guidance and help :smile:
