New release: 1.7.0

Just attempted updating from 1.6.1 to 1.70. Got an assert error. I performed an update of the pi o/s and tried updating again. Got same assert failure.


Still Getting this error after updating Pip to latest version.

It might be easier for you to open your own post to fix the problem. Are you sure you updated pip inside the virutal environment? Anyway, open a new post, upload a systeminfo bundle and the log from the failed install.
