Reported by Eric Firing on list:

The installation docs refer to ipython-qtconsole; this tripped me up because I still had such a script from an earlier development version.

Also in the ipython qtconsole dependencies section, you might make the dependency more explicit by replacing

"a new GUI...launched with ipython-qtconsole. The GUI is built on..."


"a new GUI, launched with 'ipython qtconsole', was added. In addition to its pyzmq dependency, the GUI requires..."

When you do make a release announcement, I suggest you emphasize the necessity of a completely clean installation for anyone who has been following the development. We all know this is good practice, but it is easy to forget something like cleaning out /usr/local/bin/ipython*

/ End of Eric's report.

I'm marking it critical b/c it can really trip up someone if they have lying around the old scripts. It's an easy doc fix.
