I.e. is there a reason to actually upgrade? (Against typical cons - notebooks are not backwards compatible.)
I think that if people will let the name iPython go we will see an explosion of usage by other communities and see new features added to the project.
I can see this leading to problems. Are we going to be left in a position of new features being added to one project while being unusable because the other project release schedule is lagging behind a bit?

You are supposed to use the new modules for new notebooks, but this way it won't break any old notebook you have.
Since I seriously doubt I'll ever remember the name "Jupyter". According to PG, they should change their name- because jupyter.com is already taken.
On a more serious note, if I'm reading the article right, `ipython` is still the IPython CLI interface, it's just that less-related commands like `ipython notebook` are now `jupyter notebook`, right?
Jupyter concerns a plethora of kernel and is of value to more people.
I stopped calling it iPython the day this was announced.
the server is written in tornado
repoquery --requires python-ipython-notebook
I get node.js stuff.
There is a list of all kernels in the Jupyter documentation, linked from the OA.
