    Any chance to fix to allow upload using patches, not re-downloading the whole ide?

  2. It would be really helpful to those who package PyCharm if you could include a reference to which build number corresponds to release versions. During EAP its not difficult to find, simply clicking the release notes is all you have to do. However, on point releases the build number is no where to be found until PyCharm is installed :-/

    Anyway, thanks for another great release! :)

  3. Mike says:

    Is it just me, or did the editor font weight get heavier with the 4.5.4 update?

    Just compared to WebStorm on the same Mac, both using Menlo 12/1.0, and the PyCharm editor seems more bold overall. (And the difference between bold and non-bold seems to be much less prominent in PyCharm now.)

    Was this intentional?

    • Dmitry Filippov says:

      No, there was no intention to modify fonts in this update. Could you please submit a support request here ? Please attach screenshots, list the versions you’re using, your platform, etc.

      • Mike says:

        Just following up for anyone else who sees this: the Mac build of PyCharm with the bundled JDK customized by JetBrains (only) does render the editor font thinner/lighter weight in 4.5.4 than in the previous release, at least on some displays.

        And JetBrains support was able to point me to a solution: Help > Find Action > type “Registry” > disable the force.default.lcd.rendering option, and the editor text renders like it did before. (Thanks to Anna from the PyCharm team.)

  4. Anyone else had problems with inspections? On some files, especially if I create a new file from another file, the inspections just don’t trigger properly. False positives are reported (like clearly some variable being defined but PyCharm says it is not) and clear errors are not highlighted. Other files typically work the same.

    PyCharm 4.5.3 works fine when I open the same project in that.
