Python Console with Intellij Python Plugin

Hi,

I primarily use the Python plugin in Intellij.  I noticed with Pycharm there is a Python Console (accessible from the "Tools" menu).  Will this be available in a future version of the Plugin?  In a related question, how soon do you expect to release a new version of the plugin?  It is a little older than the latest Pycharm version.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi Jim,

Actually PyCharm and Python plugin for IntellIJ IDEA use the same codebase, however due to compatibility issues we can release builds of PyCharm more often than versions of plugin.

We expect to have renewed version after IDEA 9.0.3 is out.

Best regards,

Oleg

Thanks Oleg,

...but I guess I'm a little confused...if they use the same codebase, shouldn't they also have the same feature set?  Why do I see a Python Console option with PyCharm but not with the Plugin?

Jim,

Sorry for confusing you, I've tried to tell that trunk development version of plugin sometimes is incompatible with latest released IDEA versions because it requires some changes inside IDEA code.

Hope this help!

Best regards,

Oh OK, thanks for the clarification!  So, I should expect the Python Console to be an option in a future version of the plugin?

Yep, exactly!
