PyDev 3.3.3 has been released
Details on PyDev: http://pydev.org
Details on its development: http://pydev.blogspot.com
PyDev is a plugin that enables users to use Eclipse for Python, Jython and IronPython development -- making Eclipse a first class Python IDE -- It comes with many goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax analysis, code analysis, refactor, debug, etc.
Compiled modules are now indexed and shown in the context-insensitive code-completion.
In an empty file, a code-completion request will show options related to creating modules (press Ctrl+Space twice to show only those templates).
Building (indexing) of Python files is much faster.
Code completion does not get slown down by other analysis done in the background due to shell synchronization.
Locals are now properly changed in the debugger -- along with set next statement and auto-reloading this can make a debug session much more enjoyable!
Added a way to skip functions on a step-in on functions with #@DontTrace comments:
Debugging Stackless is much improved, especially for versions of Stackless released from 2014 onwards (special thanks to Anselm Kruis who improved stackless itself for this integration to work properly).
Reload during a debug session is improved and more stable:
Only updates what it can in-place or adds new attributes;
Shows what's being patched in the console output;
New hooks are provided for clients which may want to extend the reload;
See: Auto Reload in Debugger: http://pydev.org/manual_adv_debugger_auto_reload.html for more details.
Compiled modules are now indexed, so, fix import with Ctrl+1 now works with itertools, PyQt and other 'forced builtins'.
When diffing a Python file, the PyDev comparison (with proper syntax highlighting) is now the default.
When finding a definition in a .pyd file, if there's a related .pyx in the same location, it's opened.
Running unit-tests will not try to import files that are in folders that don't have an __init__.py file.
Alt+Shift+O can be used to toggle mark occurrences.
Ctrl+3 not bound by default anymore on PyDev so that it does not conflict with the Eclipse Ctrl+3 (Ctrl+/ can be used instead).
Fixed recursion issue when finding file in pydev package explorer.
When configuring the interpreter, links are not followed when resolving entries for the PYTHONPATH.
It's possible to launch a directory containing a __main__.py file executable.
Fixed issues when creating django project without any existing project in the workspace.
Fixed deadlock on code-completion.
__pycache__ folders are hidden by default.
When saving a file, if automatically organizing imports, don't remove unused imports even if that option is checked.
When saving a file, if automatically organizing imports, and nothing changes, don't change the buffer (so, no undo command is created).
@NoMove can be used in an import so that the import organizer doesn't mess with it.
Fixed error when moving resource in PYTHONPATH to a dir out of the PYTHONPATH.
On a search make sure we search only python files, not dlls (which could give OutOfMemory errors and make the search considerably slower).
Multiple fixes on the rename module refactoring.
