IPython 3.0 released

By corbet The IPython interactive development
system project has announced its 3.0
. “Support for languages other than Python is greatly
improved, notebook UI has been significantly redesigned, and a lot of
improvement has happened in the experimental interactive widgets. The
message protocol and document format have both been updated, while
maintaining better compatibility with previous versions than prior
updates. The notebook webapp now enables editing of any text file, and even
a web-based terminal (on Unix platforms).
” (LWN looked at IPython in 2014).
