It's also a commercial counterpart which helps supporting the development
of PyDev.

older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x (use LiClipse: for a PyDev standalone with all
requirements bundled).

    * It's now possible to **attach debugger to running process in Windows
and Linux** (open debug perspective > PyDev > Attach to Process)

* pep8 upgraded to 1.5.7
* Fixed issue in dialog shown when PyDev editor is opened which could lead
to closing the IDE.
