    Hi,

    Could you please tell when the python plugin’s EAP will be released? Originally it was both on the tech road map and M1 feature list. Now I do not see it anyway. I was upgraded to 8 just because of the possibility that I can get python support as well

    This release is just plain awesome. Just when I thought IntelliJ has run out of gas, it invigorates itself with more breakthrough innovations. This release feels much better than IntelliJ IDEA 7. Congratulations!

    I’m expecting this release to support JavaFX eventually. Is there going to be support for Python?

    Could you please give an estimate of when the Python plugin will be available? It was one of the main reasons I upgraded.
