python-igraph 0.9.7

python-igraph 0.9.7, the fifth bugfix release of the 0.9 series, has arrived.

The preferred way of installing the Python interface is via pip; typing pip install python-igraph should install a pre-compiled Python wheel on most supported platforms (Windows, Linux and macOS). The pre-compiled wheels and the source code are also available from the Python Package Index page.

See the changelog on Github for relevant changes in 0.9.7:

This release also adds support for Python 3.10 and provides experimental native Python wheels for ARM64 and Apple Silicon CPUs. Note that the Apple Silicon wheels are not tested in a CI environment yet; this will hopefully change in the near future when Github Actions starts supporting Apple Silicon. Until then, feel free to report any issues that you find with Apple Silicon wheels (or any other wheel) in the issue tracker on Github.
