About igraph releases and other things
python-igraph 0.9.8, the sixth bugfix release of the 0.9 series, has arrived.
The only significant change in this release is that the Python interface of igraph has been renamed
igraph on PyPI. We are very grateful to
Patrick Fuller, the previous owner of the
igraph package on PyPI for giving up the ownership of
igraph and letting us
use the name instead.
The preferred way of installing the Python interface is still via
pip install 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
python-igraph will keep on working on PyPI until September 1, 2022, but it is
now only a stub package that depends on
python-igraph will in turn install the matching version of the
igraph package from PyPI.
python-igraph in their dependencies should migrate to
igraph as soon as possible to keep on receiving updates after
September 1, 2022.
Maintainers who provide pre-packaged versions of
python-igraph in Linux
distributions should switch to following the
igraph package on PyPI instead of
