Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce here that Spyder version 1.0.2 has been released:

Previously known as Pydee, Spyder (Scientific PYthon Development
EnviRonment) is a free open-source Python development environment
providing MATLAB-like features in a simple and light-weighted
software, available for Windows XP/Vista/7, GNU/Linux and MacOS X:
    * advanced code editing features (code analysis, ...)
    * interactive console with MATLAB-like workpace (with GUI-based
list, dictionary, tuple, text and array editors -- screenshots:
http://packages.python.org/spyder/console.html#the-workspace) and
integrated matplotlib figures
    * external console to open an interpreter or run a script in a
separate process (with a global variable explorer providing the same
features as the interactive console's workspace)
    * code analysis with pyflakes and pylint
    * search in files features
    * documentation viewer: automatically retrieves docstrings or
source code of the function/class called in the interactive/external
    * integrated file/directories explorer
    * MATLAB-like path management
    ...and more!

Spyder is part of spyderlib, a Python module based on PyQt4 and
QScintilla2 which provides powerful console-related PyQt4 widgets.

Spyder v1.0.2 is a bugfix release:
     * External console: subprocess python calls were using the external 
console's sitecustomize.py (instead of system sitecustomize.py)
     * Added workaround for PyQt4 v4.6+ major bug with matplotlib
     * Added option to customize the way matplotlib figures are embedded 
(docked or floating window)
     * Matplotlib's "Option" dialog box is now supporting subplots
     * Array editor now supports complex arrays
     * Editor: replaced "Run selection or current line" option by "Run 
selection or current block" (without selection, this feature is similar 
to MATLAB's cell mode)
     * ...and a lot of minor bugfixes.
