I just want to say that using IPython is really great. We chose it for our
application to avoid the need to re-write all its wonderfull features
(completion, history, magic commands...).
Our application also use Pyro, a remote server objects, and using Pyro
within IPython needed to add some little hack in IPython. At first,
Fernando explained me how to do these hacks, and in the same time, started
to add some hooks in its code. The 0.6.13 version contains all these
Users are very happy of the completion and docstrings on Pyro remote
objects, to have a customizable prompt (which is used as a simple status
bar), to have a simplified traceback on PyMAD exceptions and to be able to
mix up python code and magic commands in batch files.
So, I would like to thank you again, Fernando, for the great job you did
during the last months. I really appreciate. And don't worry, I think I
will have some more ideas to interact with IPython, for the 1.0 relase ;o)
PS : and I confirm that IPython is very robust, has our application runs 24
hours a day, without any problem.
