@bigzachattack@minrk Ah, I’ve also been encountering the issue where the prompt is not shown initially until you press enter or something (and I’ve had this happen even with new terminals as well as ones that are already running).
@olgabot: is there a separate help channel that you are talking about?
@minrk: I'm working on updating your gist that doctests a notebook. I have some questions about changes in the message spec and the notebook format since you wrote it. Can you ping me when you have a minute?
I think I figured it out. I should treat the new execute_result as a pyout message for the purposes of comparing, since it appears that the notebook format doesn't store the execute_result message as an execute_result message.
