The PyCharm team is currently hard at work on PyCharm 2.6, which is going to be out in a few months – but before that, we’d like to publish one more update for PyCharm 2.5. The biggest change in this release is a new implementation of resolving imported references, which greatly improves the performance of code analysis and completion on files which contain a large number of import statements or deep hierarechies of imports. Besides that, we’ve fixed a few bugs, primarily in the debugger. The latest bunch of fixes from the underlying IntelliJ Platform is also included in this release.
You can download the new build from the EAP page or update from within the IDE. As usual, if you run into any new issues, please let us know by filing a tracker issue, so that we would be able to fix them before 2.5.2 goes final.
