Hi All,

Pydev and Pydev Extensions 1.3.18 have been released

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

Release Highlights in Pydev Extensions:

* Auto-import: Groups imports when possible.
* Auto-import: Doesn't bring imports for completions already in the
document even if a parse is not successful.
* Organize Imports (ctrl+shift+O): Suggests imports to the undefined
tokens in the editor.
* Import quick-fix: Icons correspondent to the element being imported.

Release Highlights in Pydev:

* Executing external programs: Using Runtime.exec(String[] cmdargs)
instead of a string with the generated command (fixes problems
regarding having spaces in the installation).
* Organize Imports (ctrl+shift+O): Imports can be grouped.
* Cygwin: sys.executable in cygwin was not returning '.exe' in the end
of the executable as it should.
* Additional paths for PYTHONPATH (Patch from Eric Wittmann):
extension point allows plugins to contribute paths to the PYTHONPATH.
* Code-completion: typing '.' won't apply the selected completion, but
will still request a new one with the current contents.
* Pydev Package Explorer: Problem while trying to show active editor
on the pydev package explorer.

What is PyDev?
