Spe is a python IDE with auto-indentation, auto completion, call tips,
syntax coloring, syntax highlighting, class explorer, source index,
auto todo list, sticky notes, integrated pycrust shell, python file
browser, recent file browser, drag&drop, context help, ... Special is
its blender support with a blender 3d object browser and its ability
to run interactively inside blender. Spe is extensible with boa.

After some hibernation, spe is alive again. As I don't have Linux, I
would like to get feedback if it is possible to run programs in
terminal emulators.

I would like to thank Chu-Ching Huang for including spe in livezope,
his knoppix distro (bootabel Linux cd-rom). This makes it possible
to run Linux and spe in Linux on any PC, without the need of
installing Linux on the hard drive. You can download livezope from
ftp://math.cgu.edu.tw/pub/KNOPPIX Huang is looking for mirror sites.
I think this is VERY interesting to have a bootable Linux CD rom
filled with all the important Python stuff, so please help him.
Anyone interested can contact me

      Regular Expression (regex) console. For more info:
  - PyChecker:
      PyChecker is a tool for finding bugs in python source code. It
      finds problems that are typically caught by a compiler for
      less dynamic languages, like C and C++. It is similar to lint.
      For more info: http://pychecker.sourceforge.net
  - wxGlade:
      wxGlade is a GUI designer written in Python with the
      popular GUI toolkit wxPython, that helps you create
      wxWindows/wxPython user interfaces. As you can guess by the
      name, its model is Glade, the famous GTK+/GNOME GUI builder,
      with which wxGlade shares the philosophy and the look & feel
      (but not a line of code). For more info:
:New features:
    - Ignore list for autocompletion in preferences dialog to
      prevent spe crashing eg with 'gtk' autocompletion
    - Blender browser contains now Lattices and Textures sections
    - Preferences has a new tab 'Paths', which allows you to
      specify which html browser should be used and where
      documentation can be found. It also should allow *nix users to
      run programs outside spe in terminal emulators (this was
      already possible for windows). 
    - Class browser: todo and separators definitions can now be
      located anywhere in the source code, thanks to a patch of
      Paul Evans.
