Hello, Is there a plan to implement interactive command history from current python shell session?

For better clarification: Separate tool window which contains all declared variables within current python shell session :)

Another answer based on your clarification: If you Enable Debugging from the Python Shell's Options menu then you can run to breakpoints or exceptions and use all the debug tools to inspect the variables, etc. You do need to run to a breakpoint or exception, though, before the tools can do this. Making this always active, even when at the prompt, is on our list of future improvements for this capability.

Yes, this is exactly what I've meant - to have always active list of variables available for python shell, thank you for your answer. You guys are great :)

The up arrow should scroll through previous commands. Currently this is not stored between sessions, so is lost if you restart Wing. It is retained, however, across restarts of the Python Shell from its Options menu.

In Wing Pro, typing a leading fragment first filters to just those matching the fragment. Although I think omitting that aspect of it from Wing Personal wasn't intentional, it appears that leading fragment matching is not available there.

In Personal, this can be enabled as well, it's disabled by default. :) Preferences -> Debugger -> Shells -> Filter History by Entered Prefix. Then you can type part of the previous command, do arrow up and works.
