Hi All,

Pydev and Pydev Extensions 1.2.3 have been released

Details on Pydev Extensions:
Details on Pydev:
Details on its development:

Release Highlights in Pydev Extensions:

* Support for python 2.5 has been added
* Some minor issues on mark occurrences when the definition for something
could not be found were fixed

Release Highlights in Pydev:

* When the user specifies an invalid interpreter, a better error report is
given (previously it was only shown in the error log)
* When threads die, the debugger is notified about it (so that they are
removed from the stack)
* Writing the preferences to the disk is now buffered
* Fixed problem when debugging in jython with the statement "from xxx import
* Fixed one issue with the indentation engine
* Commenting a line does not remove a blank line in the end anymore
* Added debug mode for unit-test
* Added the possibility of setting the -Dpython.cachedir for running the
jython shell (errors can arise in unix-based machines if jython is not able
to write its cache)

      o Darrell Maples:
            + Unit-test refactoring
            + Run as jython unit-test
            + Filter test methods to run

      o Joel Hedlund
            + Added a support to ease adding options to Ctrl+1 in the
scripting engine
            + Added a ctrl+1 for the case:

              def m1(self, arg=None):
                  arg |<-- Ctrl+1 shows option to do:

              def m1(self, arg=None):
                  if arg is None:
                      arg = []

  Support for python 2.5
      o Added the new relative import
      o Added the new if expression
      o Added the unified try..except..finally statement
      o Added the with x:... statement
      o Indenting after the new with statement
      o Recognizing 'with' as a keyword in syntax highlighting

What is PyDev?

PyDev is a plugin that enables users to use Eclipse for Python and Jython
development -- making Eclipse a first class Python IDE -- It comes with many
goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax analysis,
refactor, debug and many others.
