Hi all, nothing exciting if you saw the previous announcement.

I just released IPython 5.0.0 beta2.

We had roughly a dozen PR since beta1 polishing up some things, and
improving documentation !

Thanks for all those who pitched in for this beta1 really appreciated !

The main point of this release is to fix a few backward compatibility,
mainly with the qtconsole.
And a few keyboard shortcut improvement, mainly `Enter` does pick up a
completion but does not submit the code a few will also be improved in

We also release a beta 1 od jupyter_qtconsole that fix the
compatibility  problem with IPython 5.x, and gain like IPython a
prompt_toolkit interface

As usual you can update with

$ pip install ipython --upgrade --pre

and if you are a user of jupyter_console

$ pip install jupyter_console --upgrade

Also if you are following the development of Python packaging, this
release was uploaded though the new warehouse.python.org which is in
developpement. So if you have any installation trouble, let us know.

I'll try to do a beta3 with (hopefully) the last annoying fix on
Thursday or Friday.
