Hi All,

PyDev 3.0 has been released

Details on PyDev:

Details on its development:

LiClipse (PyDev standalone with goodies such as support for Django
Templates, Mako Templates, Html, Javascript, etc):

Release Highlights:

* From now on, PyDev requires Eclipse 3.7 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For
older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x.

* Interpreter is now kept up to date with changes to the interpreter, so,
pip-installing packages will automatically update internal caches without
requiring a manual step.

* Fixed issue connecting to shell for code-completion (which could halt the

* Interactive Console (patches by Jonah Graham)

    * IPython 1.0 is now supported.

    * Computational Crystallography Toolbox (CCTBX: can now be used with PyDev.

    * Debug support in interactive console (must be enabled in preferences).

    * User Module Deleter (UMD): forcefully reloads user-loaded modules
when using runfile on interactive console (must be enabled in preferences).

    * GUI event loop integration: more backends are now supported and can
be configured in the preferences.

    * %gui provides customization for the gui event loop integration (i.e.:
%gui wx enables wxPython integration).

    * %edit on IPython will open the file in the PyDev editor.

    * History of commands is now saved to a persistent file.

    * Loading of history is faster.

* Interpreter configuration (patches by Andrew Ferrazzutti)

    * Interpreter configuration quick auto-config: automatically finds a
Python installed and configures it.

    * Interpreter configuration advanced auto-config: searches for multiple
Python installations in the computer and allows selecting one to configure.

    * Source folders (PYTHONPATH) are kept updated on renames and moves in
the PyDev package explorer.

* Grammar 3.x accepts u'str'.

* Fixed project configuration ${PROJECT_DIR_NAME} variable to point to dir
name inside Eclipse and not the folder name in filesystem (this could make
PyDev miss folders in the project PYTHONPATH).

* Debugger:

    * Breakpoints working on files with unicode chars.

    * patches by Jonah Graham:

        * Variables can be pretty-printed with right-click > pretty print.

        * Improved handling for numpy.ndarrays.

* And as usual, many other bugfixes!

What is PyDev?
