Hey @hackerbaby41 I’ve merged your request with an existing one; I suggest you add your vote here.
For Python / pip and Python3 / pip3 we rely on the Ubuntu Xenial package sources, and to get the most recent release of any of the Python libraries we would need to rely on a non-Ubuntu ppa or we would have to install from a tarball. That’s probably not something we’re going to add in the near future, particularly since Python support isn’t our main focus right now.
You might be able to install into user space (i.e. without needing
sudo) from a tarball of the latest, but I haven’t tried that, and it would take up project disk space, which might also be problematic.
