Release of IPython 7.6

Hi all,

IPython 7.6 was released a couple of minutes ago, and is now available on PyPI, soon on conda-forge.
I tried to do monthly releases on the last friday of each month but missed May… so well the 6th minor release with be on the 6th month of 2019… so if I don’t miss any other month we’ll stay synchronise for end of year for a 7.12 in december… unless we get 8.0 before that ?

You can update with

pip install ipython --upgrade

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

conda upgrade ipython

This is a big-ish release that still bring a couple of bugs and a couple of new features. You can read the what’s new section of to learn more about this release.

Many changes mostly in all the tests; I’m preparing a migration from nose to pytest; and we are starting discussions for a 8.0.


And … 7.6.1 is out with a critical fix for the %%time magic.
