Pythonista 2 Release
omz last edited by
Good news: Pythonista 2 has been approved by Apple, and will be out on Monday (tomorrow).
I would recommend that all beta users do a backup before updating because I'm not completely sure if a clean update will be possible from the beta. Actually, you might also want to do this if you are not using the beta, just to be sure. There's always a possibility that something goes wrong with a major update like this.
2.0 will be a free update for existing users, but I intend to increase the price for new purchases to $9.99 (version 1.5 is currently $6.99).

Oh yes! Good to hear that it's through review (and that
ctypeswasn't an issue, like I feared). I think the price increase is totally reasonable, considering how many improvements the 2.0 version has over 1.5.
Thanks a lot @omz
That's great! Are the only things you removed background audio and Bluetooth?

@Webmaster4o Yes, pretty much. Just to clarify, Bluetooth LE is still supported, just not in the background.
Ok, great. I look forward to using that module as I haven't yet, I've got a Polar M400 gps watch that uses Bluetooth LE, and it'll be interesting to play with it.

@omz , congratulations. A big milestone. I know you are a modest guy, but I hope you can appreciate other people's admiration for Pythonista. You should be very proud of yourself. I am one of your groupies 😀👍

Wow I can't wait. I just bought Pythonista recently and I've been loving it.
Docs at omz's website were update to 2.0, but I don't see 2.0 in AppStore yet
It'll be here before the end of the day, hopefully.
In the AppStore :-)

http://omz-software.com/pythonista/docs/ios/PIL.html talks about PIL but it would be good to make it clear that this is the Pillow implementation (a "friendly fork") of PIL.

Yep! (Or at least it's in the US Apps Store)
Thanks omz for all your hard work and effort behind this new version! I'm also impressed that you decided to offer it as a free/upgrade as there are a significant changes to the app. [more comments about this in another post]
I realize over the years Apple has gradually relaxed a number restrictions on what is accepted to be published on the App Store, but to some degree I'm still amazed at what Pythonista is able to achieve on a non-JB device. Greatly looking forward to exploring the new features (e.g., ctypes!)
Another quick note: I'm also just paranoid enough that immediately after updating the app, I'm going to sync to iTunes so I can keep a safe copy of the v2.0 Pythonista.ipa file. (Just in case Apple changes their mind on this release, for whatever reason. Sadly, there is some historical precedent in their allowing certain apps into the AppStore then later deciding they violate policy and pulling them).

Thanks for all of the hard work! I upgraded from the beta to version 2 with no problems, all my files are still intact.

First of all thanks @omz for 2.0 I have had the beta for a while now and it is great to see it made it to the App Store.
Just wanted to confirm that I have upgraded from both 1.6 beta and 1.5 and all my files appeared to be ok.
I have found a bug with 2.0 that wasn't in the beta, the Music Stats example no longer works as it appears you have removed the MediaPlayer.framework in 2.0 I assume this happened when background audio was removed.
Anyway it can be fixed by manually loading the framework just wanted to let you know as new users will probably run in to it.

I just upgraded and it looks all super! Thanks.
I have one problem with a script I'm working on. When I run it Pythonista crashes. I have dowdrilled the problem to the Scheme function load_image_file. When I remove that part of the code, everything seems to work. But when trying to load a .png file with load_image_file, Pythonista crashes.
Any idea? Work around?
