Are there plans to update the Python plugin to match PyCharm 1.2?

From reading past discussions, I got the impression that stating with IntelliJ 10, the Python plugin should be on par with PyCharm. Is that really the case? Is there an official policy or statement in that regard?

We use mostly Java and Python in our shop, and we've started using IntelliJ for both. Is this the proper way to do this, or should I buy a separate license for PyCharm if I want the latest updates?

In a related question, should I bother filing python bugs in YouTrack if I'm using the plugin, or would that be pointless, since I'm basically using an old build?

Thanks.

Hello Israel,

From reading past discussions, I got the impression that stating with

IntelliJ 10, the Python plugin should be on par with PyCharm. Is that

really the case? Is there an official policy or statement in that

regard?

We use mostly Java and Python in our shop, and we've started using

IntelliJ for both. Is this the proper way to do this, or should I buy

a separate license for PyCharm if I want the latest updates?

PyCharm 1.2 is built on top of a later version of the IntelliJ Platform than

the one included in IntelliJ IDEA 10. When we start the EAP program for IntelliJ

IDEA 10.5, we'll release a Python plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 which will

include the features of PyCharm 1.2.

In a related question, should I bother filing python bugs in YouTrack

if I'm using the plugin, or would that be pointless, since I'm

basically using an old build?

I think you should. It's true that you're using an older build, but not all

of the issues are already fixed.
