Possibility of having quicker bugfixes releases

I've been testing pycharm for the last 2 weeks and so far it's a great python and django ide, but right now it contains some nagging bugs that prevent

me from using it to it's full capacity, specially the bug where when i type from django. or import django. won't show me only the modules related to

django instead displaying the python modules.

This is super annoying and im pretty sure that others would like more quick bugfixes releases as well like the quick and small 96.34 release instead of

having late releases with a bunch of features that might contain bugs as well.

Please consider releasing 96.66 or 96.88 because checking the bug tracker i see quite a lot of bugfixes that could make this editor even better that it

is right now.

Hello pixl,

Right now, PyCharm is in active feature development stage, and slowing down

feature development in order to produce more bugfix versions would eventually

delay the 1.0 release. which is something we do not want. The 96.34 release

was made because the previous build contained a critical performance regression

which made PyCharm unusable for many users. The bug you're talking about

is nagging indeed, but isn't serious enough to make PyCharm really unusable.

Typically we try to stick to a 2-week schedule for releasing new builds;

right now we're behind this schedule because we need to finish one of the

features that has been rewritten after the previous release. We plan to release

a new build this week, hopefully as soon as today.

Thank you for the quick reply, even a bigger thank you if the new build

get's released today :-)  and i can understand that it takes

effort to make a build, get bug reports for them, write release notes etc

can take quite a while. Another thank you is for the fact that you've written

the intention of having a new build every two weeks or so, it's important because

even if you do miss the build time i can still have a rought timeframe of when

the next build will arrive.

And can i just say it's about time a company started investing time and money to

produce a good python ide? Pydev is great now also being opensource, but competition

only drives more inovation, and even if i am aware that pycharm will be a paid product

it's already having some features right now that are worth paying for like the good

( and looking forward for great :-) ) django suport even for the template part.
