I saw here and there that IPython is written iPython.
I know Fernando Perez keep saying it shoudl be uper case I in his talks,
so I guess when you have the occasion if you can update, it would be great.

Thanks !

Sure, this is something I definitely want to make sure we do right. Where in particular are you seeing "IPython"?

I saw "iPython" on a shared link on nbviewer.
I remember Fernando speeking "IPython" with uppercase I last year at SciPy, the I is for Interactive and is as much important as Python. I should also have a chat history from him saying that IPython is great, ipython is acceptable, but that iPython could have the project in trouble with Apple.
