    Autoupdate is again not working… I don’t want to install it manually every week, so I’ll wait for the release :)

      Sorry for inconvenience, the impossibility of patch update was caused by some changes regarding binaries assembling. This will be fixed starting from the next update.

    I can’t seem to run PyCharm 4 RC on my Mac. I’m running OSX Snow Leopard. I downloaded the Community Edition with the bundled JRE 7, and I double-click on the app icons once it’s in the Applications folder, with no response, no dialog box, no nothing.

    Looks nice.. but I get a warning when doing remote debugging.. maybe you forgot to update someting ,)

    Warning: wrong debugger version. Use pycharm-debugger.egg from PyCharm installation folder.

    I am running into a strange issue, I searched through the known issues and didn’t find anything, so hopefully I’m not repeating a known bug. Code completion will happily work, showing me all of my functions and variables inside a project module. But, it will immediately stop if I am working inside a simple function. Our project setup works perfectly with other IDEs, as well as PyCharm 3, but seems to act funny with 4. I’d be happy to provide more information if this is indeed a new issue!
