python-mode.el-6.0.5 released

Andreas Röhler-2
Hi all,

release of python-mode.el-6.0.5 is done at

Please send bug reports resp. request features to

Changes coming with this version:

- Menu is reworked and extended

-  commands combine executing statement/block... with dedicated/switch... etc. This may remove some need of customization.

- local environments support started
   If calls to common `py-shell' should use local executable
   instead of default system Python set
   `py-use-local-default' alongside wit

- `py-toggle-shells' alias of more powerful `py-switch-shells'
   Toggles between the interpreter customized in `py-shell-toggle-1' resp. `py-shell-toggle-2'.
Was hard-coded CPython and Jython in earlier versions, now starts with Python2 and Python3 by default.

- `py-shell-name' accepts PATH/TO/EXECUTABLE
   in addition to name of an installed default Python-Shell.
   Permits installing commands like
   (defun python-XYZ-shell (&optional argprompt)
     "Start an Python-XYZ interpreter ... "
     (let ((py-shell-name "PATH/TO/PYTHON-XYZ"))
       (py-shell argprompt)))

-  new commands `indent-tabs-mode', `toggle-indent-tabs-mode',
   `indent-tabs-mode-on', `indent-tabs-mode-off'

   feature after a request at Stack Exchange asked Jul
   13 '11 at 13:23 saying
   `tab-width' now follows `py-indent-offset'

- new command `py-execute-region-default' forces the
   systems default Python interpreter to execute, ignores

- new `py-number-face',
   visible only when customized and `py-use-number-face-p' is `t',
   inherits default face
   With large files fontifying numbers may cause a delay
   Credits to

- new boolean `py-verbose-p'
   if `t', reached indent level etc. is messaged

- `toggle-py-smart-indentation' new command
    also `py-smart-indentation-on', -off
