Hi all,

as reported here:


today we're very happy to announce that Microsoft has made a donation of
$100,000 to support the continued development of IPython.  We're extremely
grateful for this contribution.

Making this possible was a combination of our ongoing collaboration with
Microsoft along with the efforts of NumFOCUS, whose 501c3 status makes it
possible to handle these financial resources for our community.

I'd like to thank everyone in the NumFOCUS board for all the
behind-the-scenes work they've put into making NumFOCUS a reality.  But in
particular I want to highlight how Leah and Anthony put a ton of effort
into the logistics necessary for this.
