progress towards building from Zero:
split in 3:
pushing wheels on Warehouse
completing over WinPythonZero, downloading wheels from Warehouse,
numexpr v2.5.2 is available.
qtpy v1.0.1 is available: https://github.com/spyder-ide/qtpy/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
Hope it helps you with Qt issues.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 2 is available:
Hope it helps with Python 3.5 and/or Numba issues.
hi @hiccup7 ,
Thanks for the notice on VC++, I don't see any alarms on that per default. the x86 update worked, but x64 one doesn't work ...
I'm already qtpy 1.0.1 in my test, so that is unfortunately not the solution.
Debuging Qt issues is really not my speciality.
My understanding is that for x64 Windows, only the x64 VC++ needs to be installed (and updated). It supports both x64 and x86 apps.
I'm not sure what problems are created by installing the x86 VC++ and then the x64 VC++ on a x64 Windows PC. Maybe this is why you are having trouble updating. You could try uninstalling both x86 and x64 VC++, and then install only x64 of VC++ update 2.
i apparently have to remove it by hand and retry install ... trying to figure out where to clear
... ok, the x64 update installation package is buggy. will be update 2 on X86 and update 1 on X64.
I need the x86 to build 32bit versions
I don't have VC++ 2015 installed (neither x64 nor x86). It is Numba and Python 3.5 that will cause me to install it. I only use WinPython x64. Do you recommend I install VC++ 2015 x64 Update 1 or Update 2?
It would be helpful to other WinPython users to have good guidance on this issue. After we have a clear understanding, maybe post a recommendation on the WinPython Google group.
Both should be ok. Please note that "VC++2015 redistribuable", is not "VC++ 2015" . one is 50 times smaller than the other.
I thought you were referring to the redistributable when you said VC++. I'm glad you clarified your environment for me.
I saw this issue: #315
If I install "VC++2015 redistributable x64 update 2" and then WinPython 188.8.131.52 x64 (with Qt4), does Numba work? If not, I may wait for WinPython 2016-03 before I try Numba.
main features (since WinPython 2016-02):
Area of interest for testers:
how well (or bad) Winpython manages notebook extensions
The following changes were made to WinPython distribution since version 184.108.40.206Qt5.
Good news! I installed "VC++2015 redistributable x64 update 2", WinPython 220.127.116.11 x64 under C:\Program Files, modified the scripts in accord with #316 and #323 and ran Winpython_checker.ipynb. All tests passed except for the one that required internet access, but this computer is not connected to the internet so that is expected. This answers my question about the Numba package working.
great! Next step is to get "PyQt5.6+Spyder" working on Python 3.5.
main features (since WinPython 2016-03 build 1):
shoud be as stable as a release (still waiting for Spyder and mingwpy updates),
ipywidgets/bqplot examples in the winpython-checker notebook,
only pymc3 may be in a state to check, if you use it already a lot.
main features (since WinPython 2016-03 build 2):
does the powershell thing works as it should ?
is there a relative interest (or not) in 'mini' version ?
The following packages are included in WinPython v18.104.22.168Mini b3.
Regarding ipywidgets changes, @stonebig I would suggest to watch jupyter/notebook#1377 and wait for notebook-4.2.1 to be released, which will (hopefully) fix the incompatibilities of nb-extensions targeting different major-versions 4.x/5.x of ipywidgets.
ok, notebook-4.2.1 was released an hour ago
main features (since WinPython 2016-03 build 3):
next step: (Release Candidate: june 1X)
ipython 5 / prompt-toolkit issues fixed,
spyder / PyQt5.6 WebEngine issue fixed
The following changes were made to WinPython distribution since version 22.214.171.124Qt5.
main features (since WinPython 2016-03 build 4):
spyder "WebEngine part" (the help top right window) remains broken under PyQt5.6.0 wheel, I don't find the solution to make it work
PyQt5.6.0 wheel removes specific Qt tools: QtLinguist and QtDesigner
firefox 47 seems suffers slowness in bleeding edge use of "bqplot" and "ipywidgets"
I get this warning the very first time any notebook tries to use ipywidgets after jupyter-server has start:
matplotlib v1.5.2 was released.
@ankostis I run that during builds.... maybe it doesn't stick/put something in a place elsewhere than WinPython directory
@hiccup7 yes, I'm redoing a full update to see if scipy now is ok, and maybe PyQt5.6+Spyder.
main features (since WinPython 2016-03 build 5):
WinPython3.5Qt5 is delayed by a week.
@stonebig - Thanks for creating this build. I see that Python 3.4.5 was released. Do you want to use it for your next build?
The WinPython RC build allowed me to find an important regression in numexpr 2.6.0. I tested numexpr 2.6.1 from www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/ and I confirmed that the regression has been resolved.
I'll do an rc2, with currently:
main features (since WinPython 2016-03 rc1):
numexpr 2.6.1, ipyleaflet 0.2.1, ptpython 0.35 fixes
update list of package names in wppm
back to pyjulia "master"
other recent packages updates (see previous comment)
