I'm pleased to announce that the IPython TextMate bundle is in a state
where it can actually be used.

To celebrate this, I've made a simple screencast demoing some of the
basic features. You can find it at [1] , it should be ready to view
fairly soon.

The main features of note are:

  * Communication with IPython via the extension ipy_vimserver. This
means the bundle should work right out of the box: just run import
ipy_vimserver; ipy_vimserver.setup('session'), and you can connect.
    * running the current file in IPython
    * running the current line / selection in IPython
    * running the current file / selection / line in IPython with the
profiler enabled
    * growl notification of salient points
    * rudimentary syntax highlighting of ipythonrc files, including
warnings about broken comments
    * commands for editing the ipythonrc file and .ipython directory
    * built in help
    * access from a single key binding.

The bundle can be downloaded from [2] or installed via GetBundles. For
installation help, see [2].

We'd love to hear your feedback, so please send comments, suggestions
and feedback to either the ipython-dev list (please prefix the subject
with [TextMate]), or the ipython-tmbundle google group (just reply to
this email).
