Released v9.0.1 * Correct the deprecation message when not specifying a --format so that it uses the correct setting name (``format``) rather than the incorrect one (``list_format``) (:issue:`4058`). * Fix ``pip check`` to check all available distributions and not just the local ones (:issue:`4083`). * Fix a crash on non ASCII characters from `lsb_release` (:issue:`4062`). * Fix an SyntaxError in an an used module of a vendored dependency (:issue:`4059`). * Fix UNC paths on Windows (:issue:`4064`).
Released v9.0.0 * **BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE** Remove the attempted autodetection of requirement names from URLs, URLs must include a name via `#egg=`. * **DEPRECATION** ``pip install --egg`` have been deprecated and will be removed in the future. This "feature" has a long list of drawbacks where it breaks almost all of pip's other features in subtle and hard to diagnose ways. * Add a pip check command to check installed packages dependencies (:pull:`3750`). * Added option to allow user to abort pip operation if file/directory exists * Added Appveyor CI * Uninstall existing packages when performing an editable installation of the same packages (:issue:`1548`). * Pip show is less verbose by default. `--verbose` prints multiline fields. (:pull:`3858`). * Added optional column formatting to ``pip list`` (:issue:`3651`). * Add `--not-required` option to ``pip list`` to list packages that are not dependencies of other packages. * Fix the build on systems with symlinked /tmp directory for custom builds such as numpy (:pull:`3701`). * Fix regression in pip freeze: when there is more than one git remote, priority is given to the remote named origin (:pull:`3708`, :issue:`3616`). * Fix crash when calling pip freeze with invalid requirement installed (:pull:`3704`, :issue:`3681`). * Support multiple --requirement files in pip freeze (:pull:`3703`). * Implementation of pep-503 ``data-requires-python``. When this field is present for a release link, pip will ignore the download when installing to a Python version that doesn't satisfy the requirement. * Pip wheel now works on editable packages too (it was only working on editable dependencies before); this allows running pip wheel on the result of pip freeze in presence of editable requirements (:pull:`3695`, :issue:`3291`). * Load credentials from .netrc files (:pull:`3715`, :issue:`3569`). * Add --platform, --python-version, --implementation and --abi parameters to ``pip download``. These allow utilities and advanced users to gather distributions for interpreters other than the one pip is being run on. (:pull:`3760`) * Skip scanning virtual environments even when venv/bin/python is a dangling symlink. * Added pip completion support for fish shell. * Fix problems on Windows on Python 2 when username or hostname contains non-ASCII characters (:issue:`3463`, :pull:`3970`, :pull:`4000`). * Use git fetch --tags to fetch tags in addition to everything else that is normally fetched; this is necessary in case a git requirement url points to a tag or commit that is not on a branch (:pull:`3791`) * Normalize package names before using in ``pip show`` (:issue:`3976`) * Raise when Requires-Python do not match the running version and add ``--ignore-requires-python`` option as escape hatch (:pull:`3846`). * Report the correct installed version when performing an upgrade in some corner cases (:issue:`2382`) * Add -i shorthand for --index flag in pip search * Do not optionally load C dependencies in requests (:issue:`1840`, :issue:`2930`, :issue:`3024`) * Strip authentication from SVN url prior to passing it into svn (:pull:`3697`, :issue:`3209`). * Also install in platlib with --target option (:pull:`3694`, :issue:`3682`). * Restore the ability to use inline comments in requirements files passed to ``pip freeze`` (:issue:`3680`). * Deprecate --default-vcs option (:issue:`4052`).
Released v8.1.2 * Fix a regression on systems with uninitialized locale (:issue:`3575`). * Use environment markers to filter packages before determining if a required wheel is supported. Solves (:issue:`3254`). * Make glibc parsing for `manylinux1` support more robust for the variety of glibc versions found in the wild (:issue:`3588`). * Update environment marker support to fully support PEP 508 and legacy environment markers (:issue:`3624`). * Always use debug logging to the ``--log`` file (:issue:`3351`). * Don't attempt to wrap search results for extremely narrow terminal windows (:issue:`3655`).
