Release Notes

Beta 1

  • You can't install IronPython Tools for Visual Studio side-by-side with Python Tools for Visual Studio.
  • A race condition sometimes causes local MPI debugging to miss breakpoints.
  • When MPI jobs on a cluster fail they don’t get cleaned up correctly, which can cause debugging to stall because the associated MPI job is stuck in the queue.
  • The "Threads" view has a race condition which can cause it not to display properly at times.
  • VS2010 shortcuts that are pinned to the taskbar are sometimes messed up by running the MSI installer (but not by uninstall).
  • Adding interpreters via the Tools/Options/Python Tools/Interpreters dialog box will not dynamically update the REPLs available in the View/Other Windows menu. REPLs are updated after VS2010 restarts.
  • IronPython debugging of MPI.Net using the MPI launcher is broken; "Start without Debugging" works. Additionally, there is no option to do .NET debugging of IronPython MPI processes.
  • Pre-calculated Intellisense doesn't include signature help for classes.
  • Sending images to an IPython REPL hosted in Visual Studio is broken.
  • IPython uses Zero-MQ for interprocess communication; the Zero-MQ library needs a patch to work with 64-bit Python. (This bug is external to PTVS but you may run into it.)

Reviews for this release

python in combination with Visual Studio is incredibly powerful and useful. I am looking forward for future updates on this project!! Will be using it now for all my python coding stuff!

Just tried it out. Awesome. Now I only have one editor. (One editor to rule them all...etc.) This ain't much of a review, but a thumbs up and thank you for the implementation.

Very robust. Integrates automatically with any/all CPython interpreters installed. This has come a very long way since it was known as IronPython Tools for VS.
