*PyDev 6.4.3 Release Highlights*

PyDev changes:


   - Notification of threads is done as they're created instead of
      synchronized afterwards.
      - Support for using frame evaluation disabled by default as it made
      the debugger much slower on some cases.
      - Fixed case where breakpoint was missed if an exception was raised
      in a given line.
      - Properly break on unhandled exceptions on threads.
      - Add missing import which affected repl with IPython.
      - Fix for case where breakpoints could be missed.
      - Fixed issue tracing lamda functions.
      - pydevd.settrace() could end up not stopping the debugger properly.
      - Fixed critical error on debugger (could deadlock when creating a
      new thread).

   *Code Formatter*

      It's now possible to use the PyDev code formatter using the command
      - Install with: *pip install pydevf*
         - Fixes many common formatter errors.
         - Tries to keep code close to the original formatting.
         - see: for more details.

      Fixed issue where blank line was being put in the wrong place in the
      PyDev code formatter.

   Grammar: fixed issue parsing f-strings.
   - Fixed issue sending current line to interactive console (F2).
