Release of IPython 8.5.0

Hi all,

There was IPython 8.5.0 released a few minutes ago. It’s been a few month since the last release, and this is not the last friday of the month. The time I spend on IPython itself keep decreasing, for various reasons. Thanks for your patience in reviewing merging PRs, and thanks to all of you pitching in.

As usual what’s new for 8.x.

Note that as usual, IPython often fixes issues in ipykernel, so you should upgrade IPython even if you are not using the CLI.


pip install ipython --upgrade

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

conda upgrade ipython
