User 2839 | 12/16/2015, 2:26:26 PM

After upgrading according to the directions found at the referenced link below to upgrade from version 1.6.1 to 1.7.1, https://dato.com/download/upgrade-graphlab-create.html ipython notebooks started via the Dato Launcher are still using version 1.6.1.

How do I make python notebooks use the newer version?

The Dato Launcher 1.2.x creates a conda environment and installs GraphLab Create there. To update GraphLab Create to use with Dato Launcher, do the following:

  1. open Dato Launcher
  2. click 'Terminal' in the launcher screen
  3. execute one of the following in shell/bash: # install latest version available on https://pypi.python.org pip install --upgrade graphlab-create OR # install a specific version pip install graphlab-create==1.7.1
  4. execute pip list to list packages in this environment and verify version

I'll review the dato.com upgrade page.
