Is there a rough forecast for Ipython 4.1 release ? 1 week ? 2 weeks ? more ? Is it depending of some external factor ?

For IPython itself? Not really. We could do one shortly. Are you depending on some changes in master?

What about jupyter/notebook 4.1? It's new and shiny, and it's "release asap" for I don't remember how long.

notebook 4.1 is getting ready to ship. Mostly working out UI issues with the multiple selection. Once that's sorted, we'll ship it. Hopefully a week or two.
The UI for multiple selection is proving a lot trickier than initially thought, which is the source of the delay.

Ah, I see. And any rough plan for 4.2? I'm in particular interested because I would like to rely on jupyter/notebook#622 (and the follow-up UI).

Maybe a month or so later.
Could be a bit longer, given that next month is December.
It's also always possible that features marked for 4.2 only end up in 5.0.

I'll keep my fingers crossed :) By the way, with all the different levels of virtualization I cannot figure out the following question: having a jupyterhub with the default spawner, how to force the single user servers to use a venv as opposed to globally installed packages?
It's just too many environments/virtualization levels, etc etc.

Specify Spawner.cmd = "/path/to/env/jupyterhub-singleuser" in config.

Hi
Hi was wondering if it is possible to display images in IPython, from a gist. I was lookiing into: gist-img
which generate a gist with the png content stored as bytestring
what’s the best way to re-use this gist from ipython? I’m tring to find a solution for:
1) reduce binary information in notebook
2) make the image available (at the same time) in and outside the context of the notebook
3) use that link (return from gist-img ) in markdown cells

If you put images in regular files next to the notebook, you can link to them with relative URLs and they should just work.
This works on GitHub. I'm not sure about gist, though.

@minrk that will work in the notebook context, but then the url to the img is not available outside the noteboo server

It works everywhere as long as you share the directory together (e.g. GitHub)

ok, so means I need to put the file in a github repo instead of gist, right ?
Min RK

Essentially, a notebook is just like an html file. Links work exactly the same.
Yes.

means .. i should make a personal repo colled gist … and “git commit” everytime I’ve something to paste online
epifanio @epifanio reinventing the gist

the only thing that makes this “less relaible” from a “reproducibility perspective” .. is that is much easier to mess-up a git repo .. than modify/mess-up a gist
which has its own id and it is lost in the world wild web

i mean . in a context of tmpnb/binder then the code to upload the image to github as to know github credentials etc .. I’ll think about this.
thanks @minrk

@minrk I asked for the next release time because there was a "release asap" floating in my memory also. a 'release weather forecast webpage' for the Jupyter system would be nice: what's hot, what's cold, how (breaking) bad is the coming storm.

That's a good idea. We aren't very strict about releases but a simple soon/big indicator is a good idea.
