Hi All,

PyDev 2.7.0 has been released

Details on PyDev:
Details on its development:

Release Highlights:

* **Code formatter**:

 * Number of spaces before a comment can be configured (default: 2
spaces as pep-8 recommends)
 * Minimum number of spaces before start of comment may be configured
(default: 1 space as pep-8 recommends)
 * Right trim lines now also properly trims comments.
 * When the auto-formatter is enabled, if syntax errors are present
the code-formatting is not applied (it could end up getting things
wrong in this situation).

* Python 3.3 'yield from' syntax now properly supported.

* Fixed issue when unable to get filesystem encoding when configuring
* Debugger: 'Enable Condition' checkbox in break properties dialog no
longer ignored.
* Fixed ClassCastException during parse in Python file with yield in
global scope.
* Fixed StackOverflowError in fast parser (i.e.: parser used to get
only the outline of the code).
* PyDev Mylyn integration can now be installed on Eclipse 4.2.
* Fixed NPE when trying to add interpreter and it detected directory
which we could not list() in Java.
* Fixed cache issue in code-completion (nature.startRequests() could
end up not having nature.endRequests() called).
* Save a bit faster on big files (i.e.: No longer doing
invalidateTextPresentation on each save).
