Fedora Update Notification

Name        : ipython
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.10.1
Release     : 1.fc13
URL         : http://ipython.scipy.org/
Summary     : An enhanced interactive Python shell
Description :

IPython provides a replacement for the interactive Python interpreter with
extra functionality.

Main features:
 * Comprehensive object introspection.
 * Input history, persistent across sessions.
 * Caching of output results during a session with automatically generated
 * Readline based name completion.
 * Extensible system of 'magic' commands for controlling the environment and
   performing many tasks related either to IPython or the operating system.
 * Configuration system with easy switching between different setups (simpler
   than changing $PYTHONSTARTUP environment variables every time).
 * Session logging and reloading.
 * Extensible syntax processing for special purpose situations.
 * Access to the system shell with user-extensible alias system.
 * Easily embeddable in other Python programs.
 * Integrated access to the pdb debugger and the Python profiler.

Update Information:

This is a new bugfix release with the following features and bugfixes:

- The only significant new feature is that IPython's parallel computing
  machinery now supports natively the Sun Grid Engine and LSF schedulers.  This
  work was a joint contribution from Justin Riley, Satra Ghosh and Matthieu
  Brucher, who put a lot of work into it.  We also improved traceback handling
  in remote tasks, as well as providing better control for remote task IDs.

- New IPython Sphinx directive.  You can use this directive to mark blocks in
  reSructuredText documents as containig IPython syntax (including figures) and
  the will be executed during the build::

  .. ipython::

      In [2]: plt.figure()  # ensure a fresh figure

      @savefig psimple.png width=4in
      In [3]: plt.plot([1,2,3])
      Out[3]: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D object at 0x9b74d8c>]

- Various fixes to the standalone ipython-wx application.

- We now ship internally the excellent argparse library, graciously licensed
  under BSD terms by Steven Bethard.  Now (2010) that argparse has become part
  of Python 2.7 this will be less of an issue, but Steven's relicensing allowed
  us to start updating IPython to using argparse well before Python 2.7.  Many

- Robustness improvements so that IPython doesn't crash if the readline library
  is absent (though obviously a lot of functionality that requires readline
  will not be available).

- Improvements to tab completion in Emacs with Python 2.6.

- Logging now supports timestamps (see ``%logstart?`` for full details).

- A long-standing and quite annoying bug where parentheses would be added to
  ``print`` statements, under Python 2.5 and 2.6, was finally fixed.

- Improved handling of libreadline on Apple OSX.

- Fix ``reload`` method of IPython demos, which was broken.

- Fixes for the ipipe/ibrowse system on OSX.

- Fixes for Zope profile.

- Fix %timeit reporting when the time is longer than 1000s.

- Avoid lockups with ? or ?? in SunOS, due to a bug in termios.

- The usual assortment of miscellaneous bug fixes and small improvements.
