Release Notes

Release notes for PTVS 2.1 Beta 2

We’re pleased to announce the release of Python Tools for Visual Studio 2.1 Beta 2.

Python Tools for Visual Studio (PTVS) is an open-source plug-in for Visual Studio which supports programming with the Python language. PTVS supports a broad range of features including CPython/IronPython, editing, IntelliSense, interactive debugging, profiling, Microsoft Azure, IPython, and cross-platform debugging support.

PTVS 2.1 Beta 2 is available for:

Changes since 2.1 Beta

These new features were added since the last preview release of PTVS 2.1:

Changes since 2.0 RTM

There are a number of exciting improvements in this release compared to 2.0, many based on your feedback & suggestions. Here’s a summary:
  • PTVS is now installable in Visual Studio Express 2013 for Web and Desktop editions! This also means that there will not be any more "PTVS-Integrated" releases. The Express editions have all the features in the Integrated package and more. Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 is required.
  • Templates for Bottle and Flask projects – as with Django, you can create Bottle & Flask project & easily publish to Azure
  • New editing experience for Django templates on VS 2013:
    • Full support for HTML5, CSS and JS
    • CSS and JS syntax highlighting and IntelliSense
    • Significantly improved HTML IntelliSense
  • PyLint integration
  • Debugger performance and stability improvements when working with large data sets
  • pyproj files can now be edited manually to add build steps
    • Add a “CoreCompile” target to your project to enable building non-web projects inside VS
  • Along with many bug fixes and smaller features enhancements.

Your feedback and suggestions are much appreciated. To report issues or to review the complete list of known issues for this release, please see the Issues and Discussion pages on CodePlex.
