PyCharm 2.7 Beta is available now

We’re happy to announce the release of PyCharm 2.7 Beta – the feature-complete preview version of PyCharm 2.7. Since the previous EAP build, the following features have been added:

  • Settings | Project Dependencies allows you to configure the dependencies between several projects opened in the same PyCharm window.
  • Settings | Remote SSH External Tools allows you to configure external tools that will run on a remote machine over SSH. Just as normal external tools (Settings | External Tools), the remote external tools can be easily accessed from the main menu or context menus.
  • Edit | Refill Paragraph allows to reflow the current string literal, comment or paragraph in a plain text file so that lines of text run up to the right margin but do not exceed it.
  • Shadowing built-ins is a new inspection that highlights definitions of names that match names of Python built-in functions.

We’ve also fixed a long-standing annoyance with PyCharm: namely, the “Comment code” shortcut now follows the PEP 8 requirements and adds the hash sign directly before the text in the line, rather than at column 0, and puts a space after the #.

As usual, you’re welcome to refer to the detailed release notes for more information, and to send your feedback through the issue tracker. The beta build itself is available from the EAP page or as a patch-based upgrade within the IDE.

    What’s the ETA for this to go into IntelliJ?

    • Dmitry Jemerov says:

      An update for the Python plugin matching the features of PyCharm 2.7 final will be released together with the Early Access Preview of IntelliJ IDEA 12.1, in a few weeks.

    Hi, will there be a mac java7 JRE support?
    I mean, right now pycharm 2.6 uses only apple’s java6, and not oracle’s java7 when both versions are installed.

    • Dmitry Jemerov says:

      JRE 7 is supported in PyCharm 2.7 EAP; you can edit /Applications/PyCharm 2.7 and change the JVMVersions field. However, this is not a recommended configuration due to a number of UI issues with the current implementation of Mac JRE 7, including lack of Retina support.

    In which version do you plan to add emmet (improved zen coding)?

  4. Yury V. Zaytsev says:

    Hi Dmitry, just to let you guys know that Edit | Refill Paragraph is totally brilliant! I don’t like wrapping code lines unless absolutely necessary, but I appreciate a lot well-wrapped comment blocks. Thanks!

  5. Dvir says:

    Installing this update via the auto update of the EAP made my PyCharm unable to run.
    This is on Ubuntu 12.10 64bit, tried both JREs – Oracle and OpenJDK.

    Will you add better support for scientific programming (e.g. pandas data structures, better ipython integration, etc.) in future releases?

    I know that web development is your main focus but would love to see some improvements in that area…
