cloudpickle 3.0.0 is out!

cloudpickle is a library used by PySpark, Dask, Ray and joblib / loky (among others) to make it possible to call dynamically or locally defined function, closures and lambdas on remote Python process workers.

This is typically necessary for running code in parallel on a distributed computing cluster from an interactive developer environment such as a Jupyter or Databricks notebooks.
