On behalf of the PyPA, I am pleased to announce that pip 20.0 has been released.
This release contains quite a lot of changes (you can see the full list here https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/news/). The highlights for this release are:
We expect that upgrading to this version of pip, would be painless for most users. We recommend that users test the release before deploying in production, as with any other software release.
The pip development team is extremely grateful to everyone in the community for their contributions. Thanks to everyone who put so much effort into the new release. Many of the contributions came from community members, whether in the form of code, participation in design discussions and/or bug reports.
