Pip 10 has been released (“Python 2.6 is no longer supported”)

On behalf of the PyPA, I am pleased to announce that pip 10.0 has just been released. This release has been the culmination of many months of work by the community.To install pip 10.0, you can run    python -m pip install –upgrade pipor use get-pip, as described in https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing. If you are using a version of pip supplied by your distribution vendor, vendor-supplied upgrades will be available in due course (or you can use pip 10 in a virtual environment).(One minor issue with using get-pip on Windows – when you download get-pip.py, rename it to something that doesn’t include “pip” in the name, such as “gp.py”, as the standard name triggers a check in pip that aborts the run – this is being tracked in https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/5219).Highlights of the new release:Python 2.6 is no longer supported – if you need pip on Python 2.6, you should stay on pip 9,

CDN overhaul for River5

The new releases of River5 and davereader are out.
It felt like it was going to be a small change, but it wasn’t.
That said, there are still references to fargo.io in the code. That’ll take more time to shake out because this code is shared with my other projects. But the main files for displaying rivers are now in jsdelivr.
Please update your River5 installation, watch for problems .
If you want to see all the code that’s being accessed through the CDN, it’s in the River5 repository on GitHub.

Yahoo’s New Privacy Policy Allows Data-Sharing With Verizon

“Yahoo is now part of Oath and there is a new Privacy and Terms contract…” warns long-time Slashdot reader DigitalLogic. CNET reports:
Oath notes that it has the right to read your emails, instant messages, posts, photos and even look at your message attachments. And it might share that data with parent company Verizon, too… When you dig further into Oath’s policy about what it might do with your words, photos, and attachments, the company clarifies that it’s utilizing automated systems that help the company with security, research and providing targeted ads — and that those automated systems should strip out personally identifying information before letting any humans look at your data. But there are no explicit guarantees on that.

The update also warns that Oath is now “linking your activity on other sites and apps with information we have about you, and providing anonymized and/or aggregated reports to other parties

CKEditor 5 v1.0.0 beta released

When we were releasing v1.0.0-alpha.2 in November last year, we already knew the next release will be huge. The plan for the first beta release was to continue implementing new features, but our main goal was to review the entire public API of CKEditor 5 Framework and improve it where possible.
After 4 months of the most intense period in the history of this project we ended up rewriting and improving more than half of the CKEditor 5 engine’s interface and significant part of other core packages and features. The overall improvement was so big and the community asked for these changes so often that we decided to release beta.1 as soon as the code was stable, which was a month ago in March. This was also a moment when we released CKEditor 4.9 and opened CKEditor Cloud Services’ Easy Image service to the users. Long story short, we did not

‘A Fresh, Clean Look.’ Gmail Is About To Get a Makeover

Google says it is working on a big refresh for Gmail on the web. From a report: The upgrade was revealed in a message from Google to administrators of G Suite accounts — G Suite being the suite of Google services that organizations can use on their own web domains, rather than Google’s. The message stated that the changes would be coming to consumer Gmail accounts, as well as G Suite accounts. Google said the refresh would include not only a “fresh, clean look for Gmail on the web,” but also easy ways to access other Google services, such as Google Calendar, from the Gmail web app. The company recently started winding down its Chrome apps for all platforms but Google’s own Chrome OS. Windows, Mac and Linux users are now being encouraged to instead use Google’s web apps, and it’s only logical that those interfaces are now getting upgraded

Upcoming Gmail redesign will also herald the arrival of self-destructing emails

Just a few days ago we reported about the upcoming redesign of Gmail on the web. Delving further into the redesign we find that there are new features, including self-destructing emails. With a new “Confidential Mode”, Gmail will not only give user the ability to set an expiry date for the emails they send to people, but also put restrictions on messages to prevent them from being printed or forwarded. See also: Google is ready to roll out Gmail redesign, adding new features like Smart Reply and snooze Dropbox partners with Google Cloud for integration with Docs, Gmail and Hangouts Chat… [Continue Reading]

Microsoft Windows 10 gains Linux/WSL Console copy and paste functionality

For better or worse, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) initiative seems to be moving full steam ahead. There are some very respectable distributions available in the Microsoft Store, such as Debian, Ubuntu, and Kali to name a few. Not to mention, Microsoft is trying to encourage even more maintainers to submit their distros with a new tool. Apparently, some Windows 10 users have been clamoring for the ability to copy and paste both from and to WSL consoles — a reasonable request. Well, as of Insider Build 17643, this is finally possible. “As of Windows 10 Insider build #17643, you… [Continue Reading]

How to Create a Distill Article

A collection of examples and best practices for creating interactive explanatory articles using the Distill web framework
Getting Started
Distill ships with a CSS framework and a collection of custom web components that make building interactive academic articles easier than with raw HTML, CSS and JavaScript. At its simplest, each Distill post is just a single HTML file with one special script tag.
This script tag will modify your post in your browser, adding the Distill styling and functionality. When we publish your article, we will bake in these transformations, but during development it’s handy to be able to preview it locally (It even works without a web server).
A typical Distill post will be quite a bit longer than the one above. Below is a more complete example. Don’t worry if some of the tags don’t make sense, they’re all documented further in this post.

Because all
