Hi All,

Pydev 1.6.3 has been released

Details on Pydev: http://pydev.org
Details on its development: http://pydev.blogspot.com

Release Highlights:
-------------------------------

* Improved editor preferences page when using Aptana themes

* Icons updated to work better with dark backgrounds

* Handling code-completion for keywords (e.g.: a method definition
with a parameter 'call' will have a 'call=' completion on the caller)

* Showing a better tooltip for parameters

* No longer marking the Django templates editor as the default editor
for css nor html (it can be restored at window > preferences > general
> editors > file associations)

* **Globals Browser**
    * Improved message in globals browser to better explan its features:
        * Exact match with a whitespace in the end
        * CamelCase matching (so, entering only TC would be enough to
find a class named TestCase)
        * Dotted names may be used to filter through the packages (so,
dj.ut.TC would find a TestCase class defined in the django.utils
package)
    * Fix: When a space is added in the end, an exact match is done
    * Fix: No longer restoring items that don't exist anymore

* Bug Fixes
    * Fixed issue on dict and set comprehension code analysis
    * Syntax errors on hover in a debug session not shown
    * Block preferences page validation before save
    * Improved django wizard configuration a bit to cover cases where
the user does not have django installed or tries to add 'django' as
the project name
    * The example code in the pydev editor preferences is no longer editable
    * 2to3 only added in the context menu of projects with the pydev nature
    * If a debug session is terminated, no message saying that the
variable can't be resolved in the hover is shown if the debug target
is still selected
    * Fixed path issues in sqlite3 path in django project creation
    * Fixed issue where quotes could end up in the execfile when they
should not be there
    * Fixed issue where shift right did not work properly because the
indent prefixes were not properly set when the tab preference changed
