The new PyPI is finally in beta

The Python Package Index (started 15 years ago) has reached beta stage for version 2.0.

We predict the full switch will happen in April 2018, so here's a heads-up about why we're switching, what's changed, and what to expect.

The team is running Twitter and IRC-based livechat hours for the next few weeks so you can easily report problems you run into. As for what's new in v2:

modern design and search, Markdown READMEs, and a way more scalable, sustainable backend.
