Release Highlights in Pydev Extensions:

* Remote debugger properly redirects contents from the server on multiple runs.

not available (until now, it only gave those completions for method
* The number of chars required to show the context-insensitive
completion can now be customized.
* Fixed problem with Eclipse 3.5: "Invalid Thread Access" when trying
to rename a class

Release Highlights in Pydev:

* Iron Python support
* Fixed issue when configuring interpreter on Eclipse 3.3 and 3.2 (was
using API only available in 3.4)
* Google App Engine
      o Popup menus for google app engine are now working with eclipse 3.2
      o Fixed issues when google app engine project has spaces in path
* Launching
      o Ctrl+F9 can be used to run as unit-test and select which tests
will be run
      o F9 will now run the current editor based on the project type

      o Run configurations can be created for the project
      o Run as unit-test can have --filter and --tests as a parameter

* Shift left can now shift even when there are less chars than the
required indent string
* Top-level modules on .egg files are now properly recognized
* Auto-config fixed
* Fixed problem when .pydevproject was not a parseable xml file (the

* When a new interpreter is created, it's properly selected in the tree
* Code-completion better heuristic when analyzing function return
that's called on self.
* Code-completion in the interactive console now handles import
sections correctly
