JetBrains Delights the Python Community with a Free Edition of its PyCharm IDE
The newest version of the leading Python IDE features an impressive productivity feature set and comes in 2 editions: Community and Professional
September 24, 2013
Prague, Czech Republic, September 24, 2013 — JetBrains®, the world’s leading vendor of professional software development tools, today announced the general availability of PyCharm 3.0, a major new version of their renowned Python IDE, now distributed in Community and Professional editions.
This new release brings to PyCharm fans an outstanding lineup of such advanced features as Pyramid and web2py web frameworks support, new refactorings, support for SQL in Python strings, an embedded terminal, improvements in core Python and Django code intelligence, as well as other handy tools for productive development with Python.
A traditionally rich feature set is not the only reason for the Python community to check out the latest version of PyCharm. The brand new free Community Edition makes this smart IDE available to wider circles of Python developers worldwide.
The decision to release an open-source edition of PyCharm came naturally to JetBrains, a known supporter of the developer community. Python has long been used in scientific computing and is rapidly being adopted by education and outreach programs, which are sure to welcome such an advanced and free coding development environment as PyCharm Community Edition. In addition, a rich set of intelligent language features that ensure productive and error-free development will be also appreciated by professionals that use Python for their lightweight coding or scripting tasks.
“With the open-source release of PyCharm Community Edition we are looking out for those who are just starting to learn programming. We want them to have access not only to a great language, but also to a great IDE that can guide them through their first development steps, help them spot and fix their mistakes on the fly,” said Dmitry Jemerov, JetBrains CTO. “At the same time, developers using Python in their daily work will appreciate the advanced features in the full Professional Edition of PyCharm.”
The key features of PyCharm 3.0 include:
- Full-featured embedded local terminal (Community & Professional)
- Configurable language injections (Community & Professional)
- SQLAlchemy support (Professional only)
- Pyramid and Web2py support (Professional only)
- Improvements in Python and Django code intelligence (Partially Community & Professional)
