JetBrains PyCharm 2.0 Goes All Out to Extend Technology Support
The dynamic Python IDE from JetBrains takes a major step forward to embrace more developers: adds Mako, Jinja2, CoffeeScript, Cython, and more
December 13, 2011
Prague, Czech Republic, Dec 13, 2011 — JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the general availability of PyCharm 2.0, its integrated development environment for Python, Django and Google App Engine.
“People use Python for web development, scientific computing, desktop software, games and more — the diversity is nothing short of amazing”, said Dmitry Jemerov, PyCharm project lead at JetBrains. “To match this diversity, and the wide variety of frameworks and technologies in use today, we’re gradually expanding the range of technologies supported in PyCharm. The biggest step in this release is the addition of two new template languages, Mako and Jinja2. At the same time, we’ve strengthened the core Python support through the integration of code coverage, IPython, PyPy and new static code analysis possibilities.”
Besides supporting more technologies, PyCharm 2.0 brings the following key enhancements:
- Built-in analysis of code coverage by unit tests.
- More code inspections such as detection of parameter type mismatch and usages of deprecated modules, classes and functions.
- Code assistance for internationalizing Django applications.
- The ability to open multiple projects inside one IDE window.
- A brand new IDE UI, with many improvements for every supported platform.
PyCharm 2.0 is a free update for everyone who purchased their PyCharm license after Dec 13, 2010.
JetBrains offers affordably priced personal and commercial licenses for PyCharm and academic license for students. Each license includes 1 year of free IDE updates, covering even major new releases. Free licenses are available for open source projects.
