Taking Blender 2.63a for a test drive …..sweet!

I know what most Blender-heads would say, version 2.63 has been out for a while.  I have been comfortable with the workflow of 2.49, got it tweaked in a way that’s familiar, and what happens ?  The folks at Blender.org decide to put their efforts into overdrive with version 2.5x and then 2.6x.  I had a copy of 2.57 a played with it on and off, but now its version  2.63, (this time next year it might be up to 2.89). I figure I would give the latest version a shot (thankfully they[the Blender Illuminati] have a solid foundation in place where older blender files work well(with minimal effort) on newer versions).  So I gave it a try, to do a character from scratch … the verdict…extremely polished.  From the features, UI, and extremely flexible setup, 2.63 looks and feels like “top shelf” pro-grade software.  And in a matter of  a couple of hours, I had one more reason to make my nephew laugh.

Editra – Add the plugins and it’s a very flexible IDE (with syntax highlighting for Python)

You can find Editra at http://editra.org.

The current version is 7.12 and it requires wxPython 2.8 to run. On my system, Editra is setup with Python 2.6 but I can run any version of Python through it (2.4, 2.6, 3.1, and even Panda 3d-Python 2.6). Where Editra really excels is by adding the optional plug-ins. Once installed, these transform Editra into a serious IDE for Python projects or simple code dissections.

Available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows

The project documentation explains everything from installation and configuration to adding the plugins, and by checking http://editra.org/supported_file_types you will see a list of other languages that Editra can be used to edit.

If your looking for a streamlined, functional, and flexible Python IDE, Editra is definitely worth a look.
