Pythonista 3.4 is out!
Sorry to be negative but all my apps have started since this morning. I didnt realise anything had changed until I saw that a new update had been released. Could you please help me figure out what is going on as I love Pythonista and have written several apps that I use everyday. However now after a minute or 2 of using the app the whole of pythonista crashes. I have been running the apps for over 2 years and I have never seen this happen before.
@LankyDonkey I am on ios 16.4.1

@ForceBru Thanks for the crash log. Unfortunately, it has become pretty difficult to test on iOS 12, and apparently no one in the beta was still using it, so it slipped through. Sorry about this! I'll look into it.

@LankyDonkey Issues after upgrading are often caused by modules in site-packages-3 or site-packages. Modules like requests or dropbox have been updated in the built-in site-packages and can be deleted from user site-packages. I would start with deleting all modules in site-packages-3 if you have any. If you use stash, there are other threads in this forum with instructions for installing the dev version that works with Pythonista 3.4
@omz, please, please look into it, I can't lose my daily driver... Unfortunately, I couldn't get into the beta since it's full. Which is understandable, because Pythonista is still, in 2023, the absolute best Python IDE for iOS. 20/10, would buy again and recommend to more people. Let me know if I can help resolve this in any way!

Great Job! So far the transition has been seamless, with my earlier scripts running just fine!
Thanks for doing this (again).
Is there a place we can use Paypal to show our gratitude? You deserve some new income from those of us who are not new purchasers!

@omz So happy about this. Just 5star reviewed the update!
@omz, thank you so much for the update, using it for years, and love this app so much!
Last night I been trying to use the datepicker,
realise it has changed to the new style! Is there any way to continue using the old date picker which uses a scroll wheel!
I been trying for the whole night, but got no clue!
I am not pro at programming, so may lake of some basics!
could you tell how to do this, appreciated,

@random_soul please, try this
import ui from objc_util import ObjCInstance v = ui.View() v.background_color = 'white' dp = ui.DatePicker() objc = ObjCInstance(dp) @on_main_thread def setWheel(): objc.setPreferredDatePickerStyle_(1) setWheel() v.add_subview(dp) v.present()
Note that Apple doc says this PreferredDatePickerStyle should be 3 for wheel but it only works with 1 and don't ask me why.
Styles case automatic A style indicating that the system picks the concrete style based on the current platform and date picker mode. case compact A style indicating that the date picker displays as a label that when tapped displays a calendar-style editor. case inline A style indicating that the date pickers displays as an inline, editable field. case wheels A style indicating that the date picker displays as a wheel picker
it worked! Yes! Thank you!
This really helps!
I wrote an app in which uses the datepicker,
and been use the app almost 3 years,
The change affected my way of using the app,
finally I got my old routine back!
Many thanks, and wish you best! (^_^)v
@random_soul Thank you and hoping that none of your scripts crashes with V3.4
thanks and best! (^_^) Thumbs Up！

@ForceBru on iOS 12, please try opening your browser and going to the URL
@ccc, tried this and the "Launch in Safe Mode" option in settings, but neither worked. The crash log says there's a problem with the Freetype library, so I guess I can't do anything about this and have to wait for the fix...

@omz Thanks for the update, works great.
Could you check if it is possible fix Multicast Networking?
@ForceBru ok, sorry
@bosco I just tried to re-install some packages (eg wikipedia, fuzzywuzzy) via stash and am getting the same error message: No such file or directory: '/private/var/mobile/Containers/Shared/AppGroup/396C78F0-721B-4513-AE1D-505E0C669841/Pythonista3/Documents/site-packages-3/.pypi_packages'
I tried searching this forum but no luck
