Hello everyone,

I am happy to announce that IPython 5.0.0 beta 1 was release as few
minutes ago by Jamie our new project manager (in cc)!

Beyond the usual bugfixes, this release focus on the terminal user
experience, and thanks to prompt_toolkit, we know have syntax
highlighting as you type, and real multiline editing ! Yeah !
(we got rid of readline as well)

We'll release a more detailed blog post describing the new features
when we release the final version.

We would be happy if you could try this beta and report any
strange/bad behavior,
And make sure you do not use any APIs that have been deprecated and or removed.

You can upgrade now with

    pip install ipython --upgrade --pre

If all goes well we should cut the rc and/or final in 2 to 3 week-ish.
We'll try to polish the documentation, migration guide, and changelog
during this period, so please report any inaccuracies, missing part,.. etc
I guess you know the drill by now.

See attached gif-trailer if you can't install it now.
If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this thread.
