[IPython-dev] Announce: IPython Notebook Mac App (Europa Notebook)

Hey all,

I'd like to announce the first release of an experiment I've been working
on: an IPython Notebook mac app. This is similar in spirit to [1] and [2],
but I've tried to iron out a few kinks people have had in installation as
well as bundle some of my favorite extensions.

You can download it here: http://www.europanotebook.com

- Completely bundled Python, separate from system python
- No external dependencies whatsoever – *completely* bundled
- Includes matplotlib, numpy, and scipy
- Includes a few extra JS extensions, such as cell hiding and the wonderful
Calico extensions [3]
- Integrated with Finder

This is part of my ongoing work to make IHaskell (and Haskell) more
accessible – now that IPython is neatly packaged, I plan on adding the
IHaskell kernel and platform to the package. However, I figured that the
intermediate may also be useful to someone.

Note: I was considering experimenting with making this a paid Mac
application. I don't know if this is worth money to anyone – if you have
opinions on this matter, let me know, I'm still trying to figure out what I
think about all of this.

Thanks to all the IPython devs for creating such a great platform!
