Build solution is F7 now. It's often faster to select the pythoncore
project and select build from the right click menu if the developer only
modifies a core file.

You can set up the python project as startup project. F5 launches the
startup project in a debug environment. Double clicking on the exe
works, too. sys.path is set up properly.
