Pip 19.3 release

Hello everyone!

On behalf of the PyPA, I am pleased to announce that pip 19.3 has been released.

The full release notes are available here but the main highlights are:

  • support for manylinux2014 wheels
  • slightly faster load time
  • many bug fixes and lots of minor improvements

While the upgrade should be painless, we would recommend that users test the release before deploying in production, as with any other software release.

To install pip 19.3, you can use get-pip.py (as described in https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing) or run:

python -m pip install --upgrade pip

Note that if you are using a version of pip supplied by your distribution vendor, vendor-supplied upgrades will be available in due course.

The pip development team is extremely grateful to everyone in the community
for their contributions. Thanks to everyone who put so much effort into the
new release. Many of the contributions came from community members, whether
in the form of code, participation in design discussions and/or bug reports.
