And the best thing is: IPython 0.11 is not compatible to 0.10 so if you
had your own customized ipythonrc you can start from scratch.
The documentation says "If you are upgrading to version 0.11 of
IPython, you will need to migrate your old ipythonrc or ipy_user_conf.py
configuration files to the new system. Read on for information on how to
do this." Unfortunately there is no more mentioning of "migration", so
the developers' approach seems to be: "read all about the new
configuration system and see if you can somehow duplicate your old
ipythonrc settings. Good luck!".
By the way: "configuration object", "applications", "configurables",
"singletons", ... Am I really supposed to understand all this?
