Hi all,

We've just released IPython 2.2, which rolls up a few bugfixes that have
been backported since the last release. This includes a fix for a security
issue posted a few days ago, which could have allowed an attacker who could
intercept network traffic (e.g. on insecure wifi) to intercept a request
for Mathjax and send back malicious javascript which would run in the
notebook. The fix was simply to always load mathjax over HTTPS:

You can see the full list of issues and PRs for this release here:

You can install this release in any of the usual ways.
