This documentation covers a development version of IPython. The development version may differ significantly from the latest stable release.


This documentation covers IPython versions 6.0 and higher. Beginning with version 6.0, IPython stopped supporting compatibility with Python versions lower than 3.3 including all versions of Python 2.7.

If you are looking for an IPython version compatible with Python 2.7, please use the IPython 5.x LTS release and refer to its documentation (LTS is the long term support release).

Remove Deprecated Stuff

We no longer need to add extensions to the PYTHONPATH because that is being handled by load_extension.

We are also removing Cythonmagic, sympyprinting and rmagic as they are now in other packages and no longer need to be inside IPython.
