We proudly announce the release of LingPy-2.0, a Python toolkit for quantitative tasks in historical linguistics and dialectology. Building on the previously released LingPy-1.0, LingPy-2.0 comes along with many new features that ease the work of exploratory data analysis in quantitative historical linguistics. LingPy-2.0 offers full support for both Python2 and Python3. Using the Python3 version, it runs on all important operating systems (Windows, MacOS, Linux). In contrast to LingPy-1.0, LingPy-2.0 has been enhanced in many ways. The new features include:

* methods for exploratory borrowing detection (building on the approach by Nelson-Sathi et al. 2011),
* methods for sophisticated parsing of orthographies,
* new frameworks for pairwise and multiple sequence alignments (including rough methods for linguistic reconstruction using consensus strings, the integration of new sound-class models for the ASJP alphabet, and sophisticated output to LaTeX and HTML), and
* new methods for the plotting of phylogenetic trees and networks
