  • DEPRECATION pip install --build and pip install --no-clean are now deprecated. See Issue #906 for discussion.
  • Fixed #1112. Couldn’t download directly from wheel paths/urls, and when wheel downloads did occur using requirement specifiers, dependencies weren’t downloaded (PR #1527)
  • Fixed #1320. pip wheel was not downloading wheels that already existed (PR #1524)
  • Fixed #1111. pip install --download was failing using local --find-links (PR #1524)

  • Fixed an error that prevented accessing PyPI when pyopenssl, ndg-httpsclient, and pyasn1 are installed
  • Fixed an issue that caused trailing comments to be incorrectly included as part of the URL in a requirements file

1.5.1 (2014-01-20)

  • pip now only requires setuptools (any setuptools, not a certain version) when installing distributions from src (i.e. not from wheel). (Pull #1434).
  • get-pip.py now installs setuptools, when it’s not already installed (Pull #1475)
  • Don’t decode downloaded files that have a Content-Encoding header. (Pull #1435)
  • Fix to correctly parse wheel filenames with single digit versions. (Pull #1445)

1.5 (2014-01-01)

  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE pip no longer supports the --use-mirrors, -M, and --mirrors flags. The mirroring support has been removed. In order to use a mirror specify it as the primary index with -i or --index-url, or as an additional index with --extra-index-url. (Pull #1098, CVE-2013-5123)
  • BACKWARD INCOMPATIBLE pip no longer will scrape insecure external urls by default nor will it install externally hosted files by default. Users may opt into installing externally hosted or insecure files or urls using --allow-external PROJECT and --allow-unverified PROJECT. (Pull #1055)

  • Fixed a bug where global scripts were being removed when uninstalling –user installed packages (Pull #1353).
  • Fixed #1163, –user wasn’t being respected when installing scripts from wheels (Pull #1176).

  • Fixed #1192. “TypeError: bad operand type for unary” in some cases when installing wheels using –find-links (Pull #1218).
  • Fixed #1133 and #317. Archive contents are now written based on system defaults and umask (i.e. permissions are not preserved), except that regular files with any execute permissions have the equivalent of “chmod +x” applied after being written (Pull #1146).
  • PreviousBuildDirError now returns a non-zero exit code and prevents the previous build dir from being cleaned in all cases (Pull #1162).
  • Renamed –allow-insecure to –allow-unverified, however the old name will continue to work for a period of time (Pull #1257).
  • Fixed #1006, error when installing local projects with symlinks in Python 3. (Pull #1311)

  • pip will now warn when installing a file that is either hosted externally to the index or cannot be verified with a hash. In the future pip will default to not installing them and will require the flags –allow-external NAME, and –allow-insecure NAME respectively. (Pull #985)
  • If an already-downloaded or cached file has a bad hash, re-download it rather than erroring out. (Issue #963).
  • pip bundle and support for installing from pybundle files is now considered deprecated and will be removed in pip v1.5.
  • Fixed a number of issues (#413, #709, #634, #602, and #939) related to cleaning up and not reusing build directories. (Pull #865, #948)

  • –user/–upgrade install options now work together. Thanks ‘eevee’ for discovering the problem. (Pull #705)
  • Added check in install --download to prevent re-downloading if the target file already exists. Thanks Andrey Bulgakov. (Pull #669)
  • Added support for bare paths (including relative paths) as argument to –find-links. Thanks Paul Moore for draft patch.
  • Added support for –no-index in requirements files.
  • Added “pip show” command to get information about an installed package. Fixes #131. Thanks Kelsey Hightower and Rafael Caricio.
  • Added –root option for “pip install” to specify root directory. Behaves like the same option in distutils but also plays nice with pip’s egg-info. Thanks Przemek Wrzos. (Issue #253 / Pull #693)

  • Added support for specifying extras with local editables. Thanks Nick Stenning.
  • Added --egg flag to request egg-style rather than flat installation. Refs issue #3. Thanks Kamal Bin Mustafa.
  • Fixed issue #510 - prevent e.g. gmpy2-2.0.tar.gz from matching a request to pip install gmpy; sdist filename must begin with full project name followed by a dash. Thanks casevh for the report.
  • Fixed issue #504 - allow package URLS to have querystrings. Thanks W. Trevor King.
  • Fixed issue #58 - pip freeze now falls back to non-editable format rather than blowing up if it can’t determine the origin repository of an editable. Thanks Rory McCann.

  • Added a better help formatter.

1.1 (2012-02-16)

  • Added --target option for installing directly to arbitrary directory. Thanks Stavros Korokithakis.
  • Added support for authentication with Subversion repositories. Thanks Qiangning Hong.
  • Fixed issue #315 - --download now downloads dependencies as well. Thanks Qiangning Hong.
  • Errors from subprocesses will display the current working directory. Thanks Antti Kaihola.
  • Fixed issue #369 - compatibility with Subversion 1.7. Thanks Qiangning Hong. Note that setuptools remains incompatible with Subversion 1.7; to get the benefits of pip’s support you must use Distribute rather than setuptools.
  • Fixed issue #57 - ignore py2app-generated OS X mpkg zip files in finder. Thanks Rene Dudfield.
  • Fixed issue #182 - log to ~/Library/Logs/ by default on OS X framework installs. Thanks Dan Callahan for report and patch.

  • Fixed issue #49 - pip install -U no longer reinstalls the same versions of packages. Thanks iguananaut for the pull request.
  • Removed -E/--environment option and PIP_RESPECT_VIRTUALENV; both use a restart-in-venv mechanism that’s broken, and neither one is useful since every virtualenv now has pip inside it. Replace pip -E path/to/venv install Foo with virtualenv path/to/venv && path/to/venv/pip install Foo.
  • Fixed issue #366 - pip throws IndexError when it calls scraped_rel_links
  • Fixed issue #22 - pip search should set and return a userful shell status code
  • Fixed issue #351 and #365 - added global --exists-action command line option to easier script file exists conflicts, e.g. from editable requirements from VCS that have a changed repo URL.

    $ python get-pip.py

    This may have to be run as root.

    Note

    Make sure you have distribute installed before using the installer!

0.8

  • Track which build/ directories pip creates, never remove directories it doesn’t create. From Hugo Lopes Tavares.
  • Pip now accepts file:// index URLs. Thanks Dave Abrahams.
  • Various cleanup to make test-running more consistent and less fragile. Thanks Dave Abrahams.
  • Real Windows support (with passing tests). Thanks Dave Abrahams.
  • pip-2.7 etc. scripts are created (Python-version specific scripts)
  • contrib/build-standalone script creates a runnable .zip form of pip, from Jannis Leidel
  • Editable git repos are updated when reinstalled
  • Fix problem with --editable when multiple .egg-info/ directories are found.
  • A number of VCS-related fixes for pip freeze, from Hugo Lopes Tavares.

  • Added pip search command.
  • Tab-complete names of installed distributions for pip uninstall.
  • Support tab-completion when there is a global-option before the subcommand.
  • Install header files in standard (scheme-default) location when installing outside a virtualenv. Install them to a slightly more consistent non-standard location inside a virtualenv (since the standard location is a non-writable symlink to the global location).
  • pip now logs to a central location by default (instead of creating pip-log.txt all over the place) and constantly overwrites the file in question. On Unix and Mac OS X this is '$HOME/.pip/pip.log' and on Windows it’s '%HOME%\\pip\\pip.log'. You are still able to override this location with the $PIP_LOG_FILE environment variable. For a complete (appended) logfile use the separate '--log' command line option.
  • Fixed an issue with Git that left an editable packge as a checkout of a remote branch, even if the default behaviour would have been fine, too.
  • Fixed installing from a Git tag with older versions of Git.
  • Expand “~” in logfile and download cache paths.
  • Speed up installing from Mercurial repositories by cloning without updating the working copy multiple times.

  • Fixed installing editable packages with svn+ssh URLs.
  • Don’t print unwanted debug information when running the freeze command.
  • Create log file directory automatically. Thanks Alexandre Conrad.
  • Make test suite easier to run successfully. Thanks Dave Abrahams.
  • Fixed “pip install .” and “pip install ..”; better error for directory without setup.py. Thanks Alexandre Conrad.

  • Fixed uninstallation of scripts installed with easy_install.
  • Fixed an issue in the package finder that could result in an infinite loop while looking for links.

  • Extended configurability with config files and environment variables.
  • Allow packages to be upgraded, e.g., pip install Package==0.1 then pip install Package==0.2.

  • Added command and option completion for bash and zsh.
  • Extended integration with virtualenv by providing an option to automatically use an active virtualenv and an option to warn if no active virtualenv is found.
  • Fixed a bug with pip install –download and editable packages, where directories were being set with 0000 permissions, now defaults to 755.
  • Fixed uninstallation of easy_installed console_scripts.
  • Fixed uninstallation on Mac OS X Framework layout installs
  • Fixed bug preventing uninstall of editables with source outside venv.
  • Creates download cache directory if not existing.

0.5.1

  • Fixed a couple little bugs, with git and with extensions.

0.5

  • Added ability to override the default log file name (pip-log.txt) with the environmental variable $PIP_LOG_FILE.
  • Made the freeze command print installed packages to stdout instead of writing them to a file. Use simple redirection (e.g. pip freeze > stable-req.txt) to get a file with requirements.
  • Fixed problem with freezing editable packages from a Git repository.
  • Added support for base URLs using <base href='...'> when parsing HTML pages.
  • Fixed installing of non-editable packages from version control systems.
  • Fixed issue with Bazaar’s bzr+ssh scheme.
  • Added –download-dir option to the install command to retrieve package archives. If given an editable package it will create an archive of it.
  • Added ability to pass local file and directory paths to --find-links, e.g. --find-links=file:///path/to/my/private/archive
  • Reduced the amount of console log messages when fetching a page to find a distribution was problematic. The full messages can be found in pip-log.txt.

  • Fixed installing editable packages from Git branches.
  • Fixes freezing of editable packages from Mercurial repositories.
  • Fixed handling read-only attributes of build files, e.g. of Subversion and Bazaar on Windows.
  • When downloading a file from a redirect, use the redirected location’s extension to guess the compression (happens specifically when redirecting to a bitbucket.org tip.gz file).
  • Editable freeze URLs now always use revision hash/id rather than tip or branch names which could move.
  • Fixed comparison of repo URLs so incidental differences such as presence/absence of final slashes or quoted/unquoted special characters don’t trigger “ignore/switch/wipe/backup” choice.
  • Fixed handling of attempt to checkout editable install to a non-empty, non-repo directory.

0.4

  • Make -e work better with local hg repositories
  • Construct PyPI URLs the exact way easy_install constructs URLs (you might notice this if you use a custom index that is slash-sensitive).
  • Improvements on Windows (from Ionel Maries Cristian).
  • Fixed problem with not being able to install private git repositories.
  • Make pip zip zip all its arguments, not just the first.
  • Fix some filename issues on Windows.
  • Allow the -i and --extra-index-url options in requirements files.
  • Fix the way bundle components are unpacked and moved around, to make bundles work.
  • Adds -s option to allow the access to the global site-packages if a virtualenv is to be created.
  • Fixed support for Subversion 1.6.

0.3.1

  • Improved virtualenv restart and various path/cleanup problems on win32.
  • Fixed a regression with installing from svn repositories (when not using -e).
  • Fixes when installing editable packages that put their source in a subdirectory (like src/).
  • Improve pip -h

0.3

  • Added support for editable packages created from Git, Mercurial and Bazaar repositories and ability to freeze them. Refactored support for version control systems.
  • Do not use sys.exit() from inside the code, instead use a return. This will make it easier to invoke programmatically.
  • Put the install record in Package.egg-info/installed-files.txt (previously they went in site-packages/install-record-Package.txt).
  • Fix a problem with pip freeze not including -e svn+ when an svn structure is peculiar.
  • Allow pip -E to work with a virtualenv that uses a different version of Python than the parent environment.
  • Fixed Win32 virtualenv (-E) option.
  • Search the links passed in with -f for packages.
  • Detect zip files, even when the file doesn’t have a .zip extension and it is served with the wrong Content-Type.
  • Installing editable from existing source now works, like pip install -e some/path/ will install the package in some/path/. Most importantly, anything that package requires will also be installed by pip.
  • Add a --path option to pip un/zip, so you can avoid zipping files that are outside of where you expect.
  • Add --simulate option to pip zip.

0.2.1

  • Fixed small problem that prevented using pip.py without actually installing pip.
  • Fixed --upgrade, which would download and appear to install upgraded packages, but actually just reinstall the existing package.
  • Fixed Windows problem with putting the install record in the right place, and generating the pip script with Setuptools.
  • Download links that include embedded spaces or other unsafe characters (those characters get %-encoded).
  • Fixed use of URLs in requirement files, and problems with some blank lines.
  • Turn some tar file errors into warnings.

0.2

  • Renamed to pip, and to install you now do pip install PACKAGE
  • Added command pip zip PACKAGE and pip unzip PACKAGE. This is particularly intended for Google App Engine to manage libraries to stay under the 1000-file limit.
  • Some fixes to bundles, especially editable packages and when creating a bundle using unnamed packages (like just an svn repository without #egg=Package).

0.1.4

  • Added an option --install-option to pass options to pass arguments to setup.py install
  • .svn/ directories are no longer included in bundles, as these directories are specific to a version of svn – if you build a bundle on a system with svn 1.5, you can’t use the checkout on a system with svn 1.4. Instead a file svn-checkout.txt is included that notes the original location and revision, and the command you can use to turn it back into an svn checkout. (Probably unpacking the bundle should, maybe optionally, recreate this information – but that is not currently implemented, and it would require network access.)
  • Avoid ambiguities over project name case, where for instance MyPackage and mypackage would be considered different packages. This in particular caused problems on Macs, where MyPackage/ and mypackage/ are the same directory.
  • Added support for an environmental variable $PIP_DOWNLOAD_CACHE which will cache package downloads, so future installations won’t require large downloads. Network access is still required, but just some downloads will be avoided when using this.

0.1.3

  • Always use svn checkout (not export) so that tag_svn_revision settings give the revision of the package.
