  1. Is it possible to update this roadmap by community?  Me and my colleagues wait this feature very long time: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-2887
    cprofile + runsnake inside pycharm can be killer feature.

    1. Anton, profiler integration is not just another one feature. It will take a lot of time to make it working from IDE as you may expect (with integration to all other PyCharm tools). That's why we are not able to update this roadmap since there are other essential features to complete. However yeah, we know this feature is highly upvoted and it is what up on ours mind currently for the next release or two.

  2. Is it possible to Pycharm 3.1 will work developing Flask Applications with Python 3.x? So far, when I created a new project -> Project type: "Flask project" and interpreter: "Python 3.3" PyCharm shows the message: "Flask is not supported for the selected interpreter".

    1. Hi Danny,

      Yeah in previous versions PyCharm 3.0 Flask was not working with python 3.3 

      In PyCharm 3.1 EAP http://blog.jetbrains.com/pycharm/2013/12/announcing-the-pycharm-3-1-eap-opening/  it works. Here is the fixed bug: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-10028

      There is still one bug for python 3.3+flask debugger http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-10535  but we definitely will fix it before 3.1
