Release

2.6

Date

2020-08-20

Summary -- Release highlights#

  • bad-continuation and bad-whitespace have been removed. black or another formatter can help you with this better than Pylint

  • Added support for isort 5

New checkers#

  • Add super-with-arguments check for flagging instances of Python 2 style super calls.

  • Add raise-missing-from check for exceptions that should have a cause.

Other Changes#

  • bad-continuation and bad-whitespace have been removed. black or another formatter can help you with this better than Pylint

  • The no-space-check option has been removed, it's no longer possible to consider empty line like a trailing-whitespace by using clever options.

  • mixed-indentation has been removed, it is no longer useful since TabError is included directly in python3

  • Fix superfluous-parens false-positive for the walrus operator

  • Add support for both isort 4 and isort 5. If you have pinned isort 4 in your projet requirements, nothing changes. If you use isort 5, though, note that the known-standard-library option is not interpreted the same in isort 4 and isort 5 (see the migration guide in isort documentation (no longer available) for further details). For compatibility's sake for most pylint users, the known-standard-library option in pylint now maps to extra-standard-library in isort 5. If you really want what known-standard-library now means in isort 5, you must disable the wrong-import-order check in pylint and run isort manually with a proper isort configuration file.
