Hi All,

Pydev 1.6.5 has been released

Details on Pydev:
Details on its development:

Release Highlights:

 * Syntax highlighting now has options to have {}, [] and () as well
as operators in different colors

 * Code generation for classes and methods:

     Note that this is an initial implementation of the idea, aimed as
those that use a TDD (Test Driven Development) approach,
     so, one can create the test first and generate the
classes/methods later on from using shortcuts or quick-fixes (which is
     something that those using JDT -- Java Development Tools -- in
Eclipse should be already familiar with). This feature
     should be already usable on a number of situations but it's still
far from being 100% complete.

     * Alt+Shift+S C can be used to create a class for the currently
selected token
     * Alt+Shift+S M can be used to create a method for the currently
selected token
     * Ctrl+1 has as a quick fix for creating a class or method

 * Debugger
     * When discovering encoding on Python 3.x, the file is opened as binary
     * Remote debugger (pydevd.settrace()) properly synchronized
     * Fixed debugger issue on interpreter shutdown on Python 2.7

 * Bug fixes:
     * Fixed issue when doing code-completion on a line that started
with some token that started with 'import'. e.g.: import_foo = a
     * Fixed import when running unittest with coverage
     * Fixed extract local (could extract to wrong location)
     * Fixed NPE when requesting print of arguments in the
context-information tooltips
     * Fixed AttributeError with pydevconsole on Python 3.x

What is PyDev?

PyDev is a plugin that enables users to use Eclipse for Python, Jython
and IronPython 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.
