It's bike shed time!
Default IPython banner is now:
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Apr 18 2007, 08:51:08) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)]
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
IPython 0.8.2.svn.r2680 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
? or %quickref -> Introduction to IPython's features, or quick reference.
%magic -> Information about IPython's 'magic' % functions.
help -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.
(Yes, I just added %quickref there).
Now, would it make sense to remove the line with:
'Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.'
These days, when open source is such an "obvious" thing, it feels a
bit GNU/RMS and takes up space. And probably means nothing
I don't care much personally, I use the sh profile with the minimal banner:
d:\ipython>python IPython.py -p sh
IPython 0.8.2.svn.r2680 [on Py 2.5.1]
but this could be an aesthetic win for the users of default profile. I
could also combine the ipython and python version on the same line as
is done in sh profile.
