A new release of pip is out. Please see below, upgrade, and let us know
if you or your users start to have trouble. In particular, we need your
feedback on the beta of the new dependency resolver, because we want to
make it the default in the October release.
Please report bugs using this survey:
And please **spread the word** by pointing to this blog post:
spread the word on Hacker News, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Dev.to,
Telegram, relevant Stack Overflow answers, your favorite Slacks and
Discords, etc. Most of the people this will affect do not keep up with
Python-specific developer news. Help them get the heads-up before
October, and help us get their bug reports.

Subject: [pypi-announce] upgrade to pip 20.2 -- plus changes coming in 20.3
Date: Thu, 30 Jul 2020 11:24:58 -0400
From: Sumana Harihareswara <sh(a)changeset.nyc>
Organization: Changeset Consulting
On behalf of the Python Packaging Authority, I am pleased to announce
the release of pip 20.2. Please upgrade for speed improvements, bug
fixes, and better logging. You can install it by running python -m pip
install --upgrade pip.
We make major releases each quarter, so this is the first new release
since 20.1 in April.
NOTICE: This release includes the beta of the next-generation dependency
resolver. It is significantly stricter and more consistent when it
receives incompatible instructions, and reduces support for certain
kinds of constraints files, so some workarounds and workflows may break.
Please test it with the `--use-feature=2020-resolver` flag. Please see
our guide on how to test and migrate, and how to report issues
The new dependency resolver is *off by default* because it is *not yet
ready for everyday use*.
For release highlights and thank-yous, please see
The full changelog is at <https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/news/>.
We plan to make pip's next quarterly release, 20.3, in October 2020. We
are preparing to change the default dependency resolution behavior and
make the new resolver the default in pip 20.3.

We’re excited to announce that plans are underway for our end-of-the-year
2020 fundraising campaign
launching on November 23rd and ending on December 31st!
The theme this year is geared toward education. We'll be actively
supporting Python educators by collaborating with authors, trainers, and
education companies that offer their services all over the world.
Participating companies offer one (or more) products or services during the
time period of the campaign, with all or a portion (20-50%) of the proceeds
being donated to the PSF. All participants agree to help promote the
fundraiser during the length of the campaign.
For those interested in working with us, we’ve created an application
<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/psf_python_ed> for participation. Through
the application process, we hope to have products and services throughout
We look forward to working with the community to make this campaign a
