The Pallets team is pleased to release Click 7.1.

Read the full changelog to understand what may affect your code when upgrading.

  • Drop support for Python 3.4. This will be the last version to support Python 2.7 and 3.5.
  • Multiple fixes in low-level Windows compatibility code.
  • Colored output in Jupyter notebooks on Linux and Mac.
  • Updated Bash and ZSH tab completion support. Add support for Fish.

This also fixes a packaging issue from 7.0 where the project name in the package metadata was changed to "Click" with an upper case "C". This has been reverted, the name is now correctly reported in all lower case, "click".
