Hi, is it possible to use the qtconsole that comes with IPython 0.11? BR / Johan

Sage only includes IPython 0.10, and I believe it's going to take some work to upgrade to 0.11.

John, that's a great answer. I think you should post it as a real "answer".

Ok, but is it on the todo list? Can it be expected in the next Sage release? It would really be a good feature I think.

It's not on the "todo list" = trac at this moment, as one can see by google searching for "site:trac.sagemath.org upgrade ipython". It will happen when somebody (you!?) opens a ticket and makes it happen.

OK, don't think I'm quite up for the job. I'm not really a software developer. However, should enough people find this interesting I will consider contributing somehow. The task should be organized by someone more skilled than me though.

Jason suggested making this an answer rather than a comment:

Sage only includes IPython 0.10, and I believe it's going to take some work to upgrade to 0.11. In particular, if you look at the list of changes from 0.10 to 0.11, there are number of backwards-incompatibilities.

(I also may be remembering wrong, but did Fernando Perez, one of the IPython developers, suggest that we wait until 0.12?)

Yes, and 0.12 is progressing nicely. I've been keeping my eye on it.
