On behalf of the PyPA, I am pleased to announce that pip 19.3 has been released.
The full release notes are available at https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/news/ but the main highlights are: - support for `manylinux2014` wheels - slightly faster load time - many bug fixes and lots of minor improvements
While the upgrade should be painless, we would recommend that users test the release before deploying in production, as with any other software release.
To install pip 19.3, you can use `get-pip.py` (as described in https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing) or run:
`python -m pip install --upgrade pip`
Note that if you are using a version of pip supplied by your distribution vendor, vendor-supplied upgrades will be available in due course.
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.
