Highlights of Anaconda Distribution 5.2:

  • Over 100 packages have been updated or added to the distribution. Key updates include: Qt v5.9.5, OpenSSL v1.0.2o, NumPy 1.14.3, SciPy v1.1.0, Matplotlib v2.2.2, and Pandas 0.23.0.
  • Security fixes for more than 20 packages based on a deep-dive of CVE vulnerabilities
  • Improved Windows multi-user installations by providing more dynamic shortcut working directory behavior
  • Windows installers control their environment more carefully, which should reduce installation issues where menu shortcuts fail to be created

  • Developer certificate for macOS pkg installers is updated to Anaconda, Inc.
