Happy New Year!

New year comes with new Thonny version. There are no new features this time, but here’s the list of bugs fixed since 2.0.3:

  • Making font size too small would crash Thonny.
  • Configuration file was occasionally getting corrupted (for mysterious reasons, maybe a bug in Python’s configparser). 2.0.4 added a workaround for this ...
  • ... which introduced another bug: configuration file wasn’t created in new installations.
  • Shift-Tab wasn’t working in some cases.
  • System shell for built-in Python did not include Scripts directory in Windows PATH.
  • from __future__ import crashed the debugger.
  • There was a bug in Linux installer in short-lived 2.0.6.
