This is our third to last alpha with massive stability improvements. πŸ› 

Bonus: we've begun the process of exporting some of our modules as packages for use in other applications. Stay tuned or get involved!



The only bundled kernel is JavaScript. To detect your current python kernel you will need to run

python -m ipykernel install --user

at the command line.
