Install a specific or beta/development version of Sphinx with pip

Sphinx is a free, open-source Python document generator. Visit the stable and development(http://sphinx-doc.org/latest/) version webpages for more information.

By default, pip install sphinx and pip3 install sphinx only installs the latest stable release, which is 1.1.3 as I write this. pip will not install beta or development versions.
