2021.3.0 (16 March 2021)

Enhancements

  1. Activate the extension when the following files are found: Pipfile, setup.py, requirements.txt, manage.py, app.py (thanks Dhaval Soneji) (#4765)
  2. Add optional user-level python.tensorBoard.logDirectory setting. When starting a TensorBoard session, use this setting if it is present instead of prompting the user to select a log directory. (#15476)

  11. Remove limit on workspace symbols when using Jedi language server. (#15576)
  12. Use shorter paths for python interpreter when possible. (#15580)
  13. Ensure that jedi language server uses jedi shipped with the extension. (#15586)
  14. Updates to Proposed API, and fix the failure in VS Code Insider tests. (#15638)

Code Health

  1. Add support for "Trusted Workspaces".

    "Trusted Workspaces" is an upcoming feature in VS Code. (See: https://github.com/microsoft/vscode/issues/106488.) For now you need the following for the experience:

    • the latest VS Code Insiders
    • add "workspace.trustEnabled": true to your user settings.json

    At that point, when the Python extension would normally activate, VS Code will prompt you about whether or not the current workspace is trusted. If not then the extension will be disabled (but only for that workspace). As soon as the workspace is marked as trusted, the extension will activate. (#15525)

  2. Updates to the VSCode Notebook API. (#15567)

  3. Fix failing smoke tests on CI. (#15573)

  4. Update VS Code engine to 1.54.0 (#15604)

  5. Use onReady method available on language client to ensure language server is ready. (#15612)

  2. Don't loop selection through all failed tests every time tests are run. (#11743)

  4. Fix missing css for some ipywidget output. (#12202)
  5. Delete backing untitled ipynb notebook files as soon as the remote session has been created. (#12510)
  6. Make the data science variable explorer support high contrast color theme. (#12766)

  36. Make ipynb files change to dirty when moving/deleting/changing cells. (#7439)
  37. Initial collapse / expand state broken by native liveshare work / gather. (#7445)
  38. Converting a native markdown cell to code removes the markdown source. (#7446)
  39. Text is cut off on the right hand side of a notebook editor. (#7472)

  50. Running a cell by clicking the mouse should behave like shift+enter and move to the next cell (or add one to the bottom). (#7522)
  51. Output color makes a text only notebook with a lot of cells hard to read. Change output color to be the same as the background like Jupyter does. (#7526)

  9. Updated the language server to 0.1.57/2018.11.0 (from 2018.10.0) and the debugger to 4.2.0 (from 4.1.3). Highlights include:
    • Language server
      • Completions on generic containers work (e.g. x: List[T] now have completions for x, not just x[]).
      • Fixed issues relating to Go to Definition for from ... import statements.
      • None is no longer flagged as undefined.
      • BadSourceException should no longer be raised.
      • Fixed a null reference exception when handling certain function overloads.
    • Debugger
      • Properly deal with handled or unhandled exception in top level frames.
      • Any folder ending with site-packages is considered a library.
      • Treat any code not in site-packages as user code.
      • Handle case where no completions are provided by the debugger.

2018.9.0 (9 Oct 2018)

Thanks

Thanks to the following projects which we fully rely on to provide some of our features:

Also thanks to the various projects we provide integrations with which help make this extension useful:

And finally thanks to the Python development team and community for creating a fantastic programming language and community to be a part of!

Enhancements

  1. Adds support for code completion in the debug console window. (#1076)
  2. Auto activate Python Environment in terminals (disable with "python.terminal.activateEnvironment": false). (#1387)
  3. Add support for activation of pyenv environments in the Terminal. (#1526)
  4. Display a message with options when user selects the default macOS Python interpreter. (#1689)
  5. Add debug configuration snippet for modules for the debugger. (#2175)
  6. Search for python interpreters in all paths found in the PATH/Path environment variable. (#2398)
  7. Add telemetry to download, extract, and analyze, phases of the Python Language Server. (#2461)

Fixes

  1. Improvements to the display format of interpreter information in the list of interpreters. (#1352)
  2. Deprecate the use of the setting python.autoComplete.preloadModules. Recommendation is to utilize the new language server (change the setting "python.jediEnabled": false). (#1704)

  4. Ensure code is executed when the last line of selected code is indented. (#2167)
  5. Stop duplicate initializations of the Python Language Server's progress reporter. (#2297)
  6. Fix the regex expression to match MyPy linter messages that expects the file name to have a .py extension, that isn't always the case, to catch any filename. E.g., .pyi files that describes interfaces wouldn't get the linter messages to Problems tab. (#2380)
  7. Do not use variable substitution when updating python.pythonPath. This matters because VS Code does not do variable substitution in settings values. (#2459)

  5. Language server now supports hierarchical document outline per language server protocol 4.4+ and VS Code 1.26+. (#2384)
  6. Make use of the http.proxy field in settings.json when downloading the Python Language Server. (#2385)

  5. Ensure test count values in the status bar represent the correct number of tests that were discovered and run. (#2143)
  6. Fixed issue in the language server when documentation for a function always produced "Documentation is still being calculated, please try again soon". (#2179)
  7. Change linter message parsing so it respects python.linting.maxNumberOfProblems. (thanks Scott Saponas) (#2198)

  19. Add support for breaking into the first line of code in the new debugger. (#2299)
  20. Show the debugger survey banner for only a subset of users. (#2300)
  21. Ensure Flask debug configuration launches flask in a debug environment with the Flask debug mode disabled. This is necessary to ensure the custom debugger takes precedence over the interactive debugger, and live reloading is disabled. http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/1.0/api/#flask.Flask.debug (#2309)
  22. Language server now correctly merges data from typeshed and the Python library. (#2345)
  23. Fix pytest >= 3.7 test discovery. (#2347)
  24. Update the downloaded Python language server nuget package filename to Python-Language-Server-{OSType}.beta.nupkg. (#2362)
  25. Added setting to control language server log output. Default is now 'error' so there should be much less noise in the output. (#2405)
  26. Fix experimental debugger when debugging Python files with Unicode characters in the file path. (#688)
  27. Ensure stepping out of debugged code does not take user into PTVSD debugger code. (#767)

    ptvsd.enable_attach(('0.0.0.0', 5678))
    Additional capabilities:
    • ptvsd.break_into_debugger() to break into the attached debugger.
    • ptvsd.wait_for_attach(timeout) to cause the program to wait until a debugger attaches.
    • ptvsd.is_attached() to determine whether a debugger is attached to the program. (#907)

  9. Ensure interpreter file exists on the file system before including into list of interpreters. (#1305)
  10. Do not have the formatter consider single-quoted string multiline even if it is not terminated. (#1364)
  11. IntelliSense works in module-level if statements (thanks to Jedi 0.12.0 upgrade). (#142)
