Elpy 1.8.0 released

I just released version 1.8.0 of Elpy, the Emacs Python Development Environment. This is a feature release.

Elpy is an Emacs package to bring powerful Python editing to Emacs. It combines a number of other packages, both written in Emacs Lisp as well as Python.

Quick Installation

Evaluate this:

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives
             '("elpy" .

Then run M-x package-install RET elpy RET.

Finally, run the following (and add them to your .emacs):


Changes in 1.8.0

  • Emacs 24.5 is now officially supported
  • The new configuration option elpy-rpc-ignored-buffer-size defines a maximum buffer size to be handle completion in, to avoid laggy interaction in unusually large files
  • Indentation block movement was replaced with code that just moves the marked block or the current line; this should be a lot less magical and more predictable
  • Running the test at point now correctly ignores any inner methods
  • Jedi docstrings now show the full name of the object
  • The RPC interpreter is now chosen correctly on cygwin
  • elpy-shell-send-region-or-buffer now warns of tabs in the data being sent
  • Elpy now binds stdout and stderr to /dev/null to avoid being confused by spurious output from other libraries
  • RPC buffers (and processes) are removed after some time to avoid them piling up endlessly
  • It is not possibly anymore to use customize alone to use ipython, because of some bad interaction between custom options in Elpy and python.el
  • And lots of bugfixes (50 issues closed!)

Thanks to Aaron Schumacher, Clément Pit–Claudel, Georg Brandl, Pierre Allix, Roshan Shariff and Simen Heggestøyl for their contributions!
