Yes, I see the same:
In : r
%r %rundemo repr
%rehashx raise return
%reload_ext range reversed
%rep raw_input rich_ipython_widget.pyc
%reset re rm
%reset_selective reduce rmdir
%run reload round
In : res
In : %reset
but that's actually fairly similar to what 0.10 gives me:
IPython 0.10.1 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
? -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
%quickref -> Quick reference.
help -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.
In : r
raise raw_input reload return rm round
range reduce repr reversed rmdir
In : %reset [This was re-written]
I don't find it to be a big bother, what part of that behavior don't
you like? The auto-prepending of '%'? I think that would be fairly
easy to fix, though it's been around for a while without complaints...
I'm happy to look at improving the behavior, I just want to make sure
I understand what direction you'd like to see it improved in.
