The Highly Anticipated Python/Django IDE - a New Link in the Chain of Productivity Development Tools by JetBrains - Hits the Market

PRAGUE, October 14, 2010 - JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing
development tools, continues its expansion in the IDE market and releases its
next language-specific IDE - PyCharm 1.0 for Python and Django developers.

The release adds a new but already strong member to the family of
lightweight language-specific IDEs that JetBrains started in 2008 with
RubyMine, a Ruby on Rails IDE. Other installments include PhpStorm and
WebStorm IDEs for PHP, HTML and JavaScript developers.

Like all other JetBrains IDEs, PyCharm features a smart code editor which
understands the specifics of Python and offers remarkable productivity
boosters: automatic code formatting, code completion, refactorings,
auto-import, one-click code navigation, and more. Backed by advanced code
analysis routines, these features make PyCharm a powerful tool in the hands
of both professional Python developers and those who are just starting out
with the technology.

"Personally, Python has been my favorite language for quite a while now.
That's why I'm especially excited about sharing this powerful tool with other
Pythonistas around the world," said Dmitry Jemerov, PyCharm project lead.
"I'm certain that PyCharm will make their Python/Django development a real
pleasure. Built on the IntelliJ platform, PyCharm naturally inherits its
outstanding JavaScript, HTML and CSS editing features that all web developers
will appreciate. I daresay that with all these capabilities, PyCharm will
become a leading Python IDE even before its next major release."

PyCharm 1.0 also provides the following key features:

    - Advanced support for Django development - including smart
      code completion, inspections, refactorings and specific code
    - Integrated Python Debugger and graphical unit test runner.
    - Support for the modern Python development toolchain, including
      virtualenv and buildout.
    - Version Control Systems integration - unified UI for most popular
      VCS such as Mercurial, Git, SVN, Perforce and CVS.
    - Google App Engine support - allows running and deploying your
      applications to the App Engine server, while ensuring that the code
      meets the requirements of the sandbox environment.
    - REPL and Django consoles - with many advantages over the standard
      ones: on-the-fly syntax check with inspections; braces and quotes
      matching and pairs autoinsertion; and code completion.

Separate personal and commercial PyCharm licenses are available, both
affordably priced. Each includes free IDE updates for 1 year after the
purchase date, covering even major new releases.
