    I was ecstatic to see “Debugging Docker projects on Mac” on this list, as that’s exactly what I need to do right now. However, when I went to debug my Django app, I just see an error tooltip appear that says, “Error running Django: Can’t run remote python interpreter: Connection to host from container is not supported on OS X”

    I’m (always) running the latest version of Docker for Mac, and I have PyCharm setup with a remote interpreter based on my docker-compose configuration. With a run configuration set to run serve Django, I just click Run > Debug, and expect to start debugging as I would with a local interpreter. Am I missing something? Is this not the use case described by the changelog line item I mentioned above? Is this a bug? Do I just need to be more patient?

    Keep up the good work guys — this is an exciting time to be a PyCharm user!

      Currently it works only for Docker without compose, we’re working on the fix for Docker compose on Mac, stay tuned for the next EAP releases!

        But here is no ZIP file distribution for Windows (like for IDEA or WebStorm, f.e.), just exe file, which is not the same. Sure we can use tgz/tar.gz to unzip files in Windows, but why IDEA and WebStorm do have zip Windows distribution while PyCharm does not?
