 PyDev 6.5.0 Release Highlights


   - Debugger is *much* more responsive (fixed bug in reader/writer on the
      PyDev side).
      - *breakpoint()* builtin is now supported to add a programmatic
      breakpoint (on any Python version).
      - Watch expression no longer giving error if evaluation is empty
      (patch by glhez).

   - Code folding of *#region/#endregion* regions (patch by ghbcode).
      - There's a new action which allows creating local imports from a
      global import (use *Ctrl+1* on top of global import name).

   It's now possible to change the default interpreter through an action
   (default binding: *Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I*).
   - The interactive console now has scroll lock (patch by bongibong).
