SPE for 2.5?

P: n/a
Does anyone know if SPE is compatible with Python 2.5? I don't see a
Windows exe file for 2.5, so I wasn't sure if I should use the 2.4 version.

Thanks.

I'm not sure...but is SPE even developed anymore? After a furious number
of releases last fall, the developer announced that he was forming some
kind of unified IDE project that would bridge platforms and GUI
toolkits, and then the releases stopped. February is the last month
anything new appeared, as far as I know.

Actually, the latest looks to be January.

Certainly worth trying the 2.4 version, but it's true that there hasn't
been an uupdate of SPE for a long time.

Shame as it is a *very* nice IDE, but it had too many quirks (with
little chance of them being fixed it seemed) to use it for commercial
development at Resolver.

+1. It's been moribund for about 3/4 of a year now. I'm nearing the
point of switching to something else.

It should be. Contact me and I'll help you to make a 2.5 installer,
which I'll gladly provide for download. I use SPE on daily basis
myself.

Hello Stani,

Work on it does seem to have slowed down.

When do you expect your new project to start bearing fruit ?

Hi Fuzzy,

I think you refer to pyxides (http://pyxides.stani.be). Pyxides turned
out to be more like an exchange between different IDE developpers,
rather than a common project. There are a lot of reasons for that:
different GUI toolkits, geographical distances rendering physical
sprints almost impossible (although necessary for such task), no
financial resources, nobody with the time or ambition to lead such a
project, ... So no immediate result for the end users, although for the
developers there was some limited exchange. In a world with furious
discussions about KDE or Gnome, Windows, Linux or Mac, deb or rpm, vim
or emacs, not to mention Tkinkter, pyGTK, wxPython, pyKDE, pyCocoa, ...
this might not come as a surprise. Appearantly, despite the fact that
python IDE's are only a relative very small segment, did not matter so
much. It seems also that programmers are addicted to threads about the
best IDE. Maybe we as developers should not take that joy away, but
provide some healthy competition instead. I guess collaboration is only
possible within one gui toolkit (this is not meant technically of
course), as gui toolkits are not so much about technique but more about
philosophy.

That said, a new version of SPE 0.8.3.a is going to be released soon.
Yes, open source projects do hibernate, which by some people is wrongly
perceived as ..., but anyway SPE is alive and will always be unless I
say differently.

Best whishes,

Stani

PS I am still looking for people using with python 2.3 and (maybe in
case John won't) 2.5 to create installers for windows. (I know I can do
through vmware, but I prefer otherwise.)

PS2 This was not written with FireFox2, so please forgive any spelling
mistakes ;-)

I've never head from a company called Resolver. A commercial company
can not assume if it picks up a free project that it will get free
support comparable to commercial support. If however they would be
willing to pay a fair amount for fixing these quirks, they would have
not only helped themselves but anyone who uses SPE. No shame, no blame.
