While April 1 may be a very loose definition of winter, IPython 2.0 is
actually [out](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/ipython)!

I promise this is not an April Fool's joke, but if you don't believe me just

    pip install --upgrade ipython

to find out.

See [what's new](http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/2/whatsnew/version2.0.html)
for more details, but the highlights are:

- interactive widgets for the notebook
- directory navigation in the notebook dashboard
- persistent URLs for notebooks
- a new modal user interface in the notebook
- a security model for notebooks

You can check out the [example notebooks](
on nbviewer, or download them and try things out yourself.

This is the first IPython release with wheels (one for py2, one for py3,
for now), so please give those a test if you can. These will be installed
by default for anyone using current pip (1.5).

We plan to have 2.0.1 within a month based on initial feedback, so bring on
the bug reports!

Thanks for all your support, we have a great time working on this.
