Hi All,

Pydev and Pydev Extensions 1.2.8 have been released

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

Release Highlights in Pydev Extensions:

 * Code-analysis: when a compare statement is found out of a test scope,
that's reported as a warning
 * Mark Occurrences: new option to choose whether strings and comments
should be highlighted
 * Simple Completions: some keywords were removed from the default list (the
2-letter ones because they're barely worth it and those related to 'try', as
there's already an assistant that creates 'try' blocks)
 * Rename refactoring / Mark Occurrences: matches in multi-line strings are
now correct

Release Highlights in Pydev:

 * Refactoring: integration of the PEPTIC refactoring engine
 * Package Explorer: many fixes (special thanks for Don Taylor for the bug
 * Debugger: a number of small optimizations
 * Code-completion: works in emacs mode
 * Code-completion: added the possibility of auto-completing for all letter
chars and '_' (so, it starts completing once you start writing)
 * Code-completion: code-completion for epydoc inside strings
 * Code-completion: assigns after global statement considered added to the
global namespace
 * Code-completion: now works when a class is declared in a nested scope
 * Code-completion: if multiple assigns are found to some variable, the
completion will be a merge of them
 * Code-completion: functions are analyzed for their return values for
code-completion purposes
 * Code-completion: working on multi-line imports
 * Code-completion: can discover instance variables not declared in the
class (in the scope where the class was instanced)
 * Auto-edit: adds 'self', 'cls' or no parameter based on the @clasmethod,
@staticmethod declaration on previous line
 * Auto-edit: doesn't add 'self' if a method is declared in a method inner
 * Fix: BRM Refactoring: wrong column was being passed to the BRM
refactoring engine
 * Code-folding: added for comments and strings
 * Fix: sometimes the 'create docstring' assistant was not recognizing
method definitons

What is PyDev?
