Hi,

In previous versions, 'Exit' == 'exit()'.

Was this something that was lost in the new version?

Is there a way to get it back?

Thanks,
Shige

We intentionally removed the capitalised names, because lowercase seemed
more pythonic. If you're really keen to get the old name back, you can just
put "Exit = exit" in exec_lines in your config file.

Thanks,

In 0.10.x IPython had numerous way of exiting. This was confusing and
not needed. In 0.11 we have simplified this to simply be:

exit

Which does exactly what Exit and exit() used to.

Cheers,

Brian

There's also still quit, and both of them work as an explicit call
(exit()) too.

Oh, what do you know?

exit works fine!

Thanks, this is an awesome new release but there is a lot of little things to re-learn!
