+In-process kernels
+The Python-language frontends, particularly the Qt console, may now communicate
+with in-process kernels, in addition to the traditional out-of-process
+kernels. An in-process kernel permits direct access to the kernel namespace,
+which is necessary in some applications. It should be understood, however, that
+the in-process kernel is not robust to bad user input and will block the main
+(GUI) thread while executing. Developers must decide on a case-by-case basis
+whether this tradeoff is appropriate for their application.
