Python 3.3 support in PyCharm 2.6

PyCharm has been updated to support the new language features of Python 3.3:

  • New yield from expression for generator delegation
  • The u'unicode' syntax is accepted again for str objects
  • New raise ... from None syntax for suppressing exception context
  • Reworked I/O exception hierarchy
  • New venv standard library module (Python virtual environments, as in the popular virtualenv package)
  • Native support for implicit namespace packages

We’ve recorded a screencast What’s New in Python 3.3 as a quick introduction to the new features:

The source code used in this screencast is hosted on GitHub.

  2. demosc says:

    I installed java sdk 7, but pycharm still uses java 6.
    How i say pycharm to use java 7?

    Thanks

      Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to your Oracle 7 SDK path. Setting it so that the PyCharm launcher can see it during its start-up is OS-dependent. In Linux you can put it into the bash start-up script (~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile in various Linux distros).
