New PyCharm 2.0 EAP build: Jinja2, smart step into, goto test

Since the release of the first EAP build two weeks ago, the PyCharm team has been busy cranking out features for the new 2.0 version. Not all of the stuff that’s been cooking is ready for release just yet, but the list of stuff that went into the new build is quite impressive nevertheless:

  • Initial support for Jinja2 templates (work in progress)
  • Many improvements for Mako templates: code completion, typing assistance, comment code shortcut, navigation and much more
  • Smart Step Into action in the debugger, allowing you to select the call to step into when the current line contains multiple method calls
  • Goto Test action, allowing you to quickly navigate from a class to its test and back.

You can download the new build and read the detailed release notes on the EAP page.

And what’s coming up in the next weeks? Two big new features, both with names that happen to start with the letter “C”. :)

And remember that the 50% discount on personal licenses is valid until the end of September. All licenses purchases now will qualify for a free upgrade to PyCharm 2.0 when the final version is released.
