pip(for experienced users only), you should update it like any other package,
conda update spyderor
pip install --U spyderrespectively. The current version is 3.3.2, so if you don't have that you should update. You should also update Spyder-Kernels to the latest version supported by Spyder 3, 0.3.0, with
pip install "spyder-kernels==0.3.*"or
conda install spyder-kernels=0.3respectively. If you still see crashes, updating your graphics drivers and Qt/PyQt to the latest version (
conda update pyqt qt/
pip install "pyqt==5.9.*" "qt=5.9.*") might help stability on your system; if you still have trouble or already have the latest version, try downgrading back to 5.6 with
conda install pyqt=5.6/
pip install "pyqt==5.6.*" "qt==5.6.*".
virtualenvand quite a few users work successfully this way (including many of our core devs). However, occasionally for scientific packages
pipcan result in tricky machine-specific issues that are impossible for us to help with on our end, so do make sure you're comfortable dealing with any problems that might arise.
