Python is an amazing programming language that makes software development productive and fun. Python is open source, was created by a community of thousands of developers world-wide, and is used by about 14% of all programmers today. These are my thoughts as a user, advocate, co-author of an IDE for Python, and a director of the Python Software Foundation.

Wingware Python IDE 3.2.4 released

It has been quite a while since I've announced a new release of Wing IDE here. We are now up to version 3.2.4. Here is a summary of what we added in Wing IDE 3.2:

  • Support for Python 3.0 and 3.1 and 64-bit Python on OS X
  • Improved version control integration for Subversion, CVS, Bazaar, git, Mercurial, and Perforce
  • Added 64-bit installers for Linux
  • File management in the Project view
  • Symbol type icons in the auto-completer, based on rewritten type inferencer
  • Auto-completion in the editor obtains completion data from live runtime when the debugger is active
  • Perspectives: Create and save named GUI layouts and optionally automatically transition when debugging is started
  • Improved support for Cython and Pyrex (*.pyx files)
  • Added key binding documentation to the manual
  • Added Restart Debugging item in Debug menu and tool bar
  • Improved OS Commands, Bookmarks, and Templating/Snippets tools
  • Many, many bug fixes and minor improvements. The change log contains the gory details.
The best way to learn more about Wing IDE is to just try it. There is a tutorial in the Help menu or just add your code to a project, set up any needed Python Path in the Project Properties, and forge ahead.
