Release notes for PTVS 2.2.6

We're pleased to announce the release of Python Tools 2.2.6 for Visual Studio 2015.

Python Tools for Visual Studio (PTVS) is an open-source plug-in for Visual Studio which supports programming with the Python language. It lets you bring your own Python interpreter, including CPython, IronPython, PyPy, and more, and supports a broad range of features from editing with IntelliSense to interactive debugging, profiling, interactive REPLs with support for IPython, cross-platform and cross-language debugging support, and deployment to Microsoft Azure.

We also have a Sample Pack containing extra templates for Django, Flask and Bottle web sites, PyKinect for using Kinect for Windows, and PyVot for interacting with Excel. Our Machine Learning Pack contains some samples for the scikit-learn library and Python code generation for Azure Machine Learning web services.

Requirements

PTVS 2.2.6 requires Visual Studio 2015 Community or higher, Express for Desktop or Express for Web. Update 3 is recommended.

You will also need to install one or more Python interpreters. See our help page for assistance choosing a version of Python if you do not already have one.

Fixes for 2.2.6

PTVS 2.2.6 is a critical bug fix release, so no new functionality has been added.

The following significant issues have been resolved:

  • Fixes errors when auto-configuring Python 3.6 (issues #1565, #1994 and #2005)
    • Note that Python 3.6 is still not supported by this release. This fix merely prevents a crash when unsupported versions are configured as custom environments.
  • Fixes interpreter link crashing when path variable not set (issue #2010)

Earlier Visual Studio Versions

PTVS 2.2.3 and later do not support Visual Studio 2013. If you are unable to obtain any of the editions of Visual Studio 2015, the last release of PTVS for Visual Studio 2013 was PTVS 2.2.2 and for Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 was PTVS 2.1.1.
