[IPython-dev] Closing in on 0.7.2?

Hi all,

according to:


we're two tickets away from 0.7.2.  In the meantime, I've flushed
absolutely everything I had related to ipython on private email (I get
a fair amount of stuff off-list) and in the SAGE list (SAGE is a heavy
duty ipython user, so they tend to find lots of little --and not so
little-- nits).

If anyone has anything that's truly a blocker, plase say so soon.
Otherwise, we're more or less done.

One thing: what's the pyreadline status?  Are we good to release that?
 Are all messages gone?  Once it's ready, I don't want lingering
messages printed on the user's system, so we should clean those up.
I'd also like to know exactly what to put in the manual concerning the
windows install instructions before release, which still mention the
old UNC readline.

I made a ticket to this effect, so that we don't forget:


Once we close these two tickets, we should be good to release, and
I've also flushed enough things that were only known to me, that Ville
can really now continue handling all public ipython issues as I work
on chainsaw.  I hacked quite a bit on the ipapi module in an attempt
to leave it in a state which I can remain compatible with in chainsaw,
so we may be able to use the ipapi objects as a safe transition path
from 0.7.X to 1.0.
