# Jupyter Server
The Jupyter Server provides the backend (i.e. the core services, APIs, and REST endpoints) for Jupyter web applications like Jupyter notebook, JupyterLab, and Voila.
For more information, read our [documentation here](http://jupyter-server.readthedocs.io/en/latest/?badge=latest).
## Installation and Basic usage
To install the latest release locally, make sure you have
[pip installed](https://pip.readthedocs.io/en/stable/installing/) and run:
$ pip install jupyter_server
Jupyter Server currently supports Python>=3.5 on Linux, OSX and Windows.
### Versioning and Branches
If Jupyter Server is a dependency of your project/application, it is important that you pin it to a version that works for your application. Currently, Jupyter Server only has minor and patch versions. Different minor versions likely include API-changes while patch versions do not change API.
When a new minor version in released on PyPI, a branch for that version will be created in this repository, and the version of the master branch will be bumped to the next minor version number. That way, the master branch always reflects the latest un-released version.
To see the changes between releases, checkout the [CHANGELOG](https://github.com/jupyter/jupyter_server/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md).
