What is LiClipse?

LiClipse is a PyDev standalone with goodies such as support for Multiple
cursors, theming and a number of other languages such as Django Templates,
Kivy Language, Mako Templates, Html, Javascript, etc.

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

Release Highlights:

* **Important**: PyDev requires Eclipse 3.8 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For
older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x (use LiClipse:
for a PyDev standalone with all requirements bundled).

* **Preferences**

  * PyDev preferences may now be saved and persisted for each project or in
the user settings (not just in the workspace).
  * Currently Save actions, Code Formatter, Typing and Imports are
supported (more to come in upcoming releases).
  * The same pages in the preferences are used to save settings to
(multiple) projects or user settings.
  * Configuration files are saved in Yaml format and are meant to be saved
in version control.

* **Editor**

  * The option to apply auto-formating was changed to apply any save
actions in non-workspace files.
  * Editor icon improved for dark theme (patch by Fathony Luthfillah).
  * When running the pep8 code analysis, the markers shown are no longer 1
character off.

* **Django**

  * Improved Django 1.7 support (patch by David Lehrian).

* **Profiling**

  * Integration with PyVmMonitor: (currently
only available for backers of the effort).

    * A profiling view was created where the location of PyVmMonitor should
be specified.
    * Just turning the option on will make all runs from that point on run
with the selected profile backend enabled.

* **Debugger**

  * Connecting to subprocesses working in Python 3.4.
  * Attach to running process is now supported on Mac OS.

* **Others**

  * Unset VIRTUAL_ENV before running external Python to protect the
sys.path (patch by James Blackburn).
  * pytest: Expected failure is no longer marked as a failure.
  * pytest: The working dir is changed so that conftests are loaded
properly (to workaround issue in pytest:
  * Fixed issue where an unused import would not be properly removed if it
was not a from import.
  * Fixed exception when drawing minimap overview ruler.
