For years I have been using Python variables in %magic and !shell commands, like:

x = 1
!echo $x

But suddenly, after upgrading to IPython 4, it stopped working. Both $x and {x} are being passed literally to the magic. I've checked the docs and it still says this functionality is supported. Am I missing some configuration option to enable back variable expansion? (I'm using IPython 4.0.0 from Anaconda 2.4.0 on OS X Yosemite).

@BCSharp variable expansion like that should still be working (and is, when I test). Do you have any IPython config? Can you upgrade IPython to latest (4.1, I believe)?
@sumitsinha91 this is a chat room for IPython. Perhaps you are looking for a django help room?

@minrk Thanks for the tip. Indeed, the upgrade to IPython 4.1.1 helped. The problem is gone.
