PyDev 3.3.3 has been released
What is PyDev?
PyDev is a plugin that enables users to use Eclipse for Python, Jython and IronPython development -- making Eclipse a first class Python IDE -- It comes with many goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax analysis, code analysis, refactor, debug, etc.
* **Important**: PyDev requires Eclipse 3.8 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x (see LiClipse: http://brainwy.github.io/liclipse
for a PyDev standalone with all requirements bundled).
* **Code Completion**:
- Compiled modules are now indexed and shown in the context-insensitive code-completion.
- In an empty file, a code-completion request will show options related to creating modules (press Ctrl+Space twice to show only those templates).
- Building (indexing) of Python files is **much** faster.
- Code completion does not get slown down by other analysis done in the background due to shell synchronization.
* **Interactive Console**:
- The interactive console now has tab-completion (so, tab can be used to show completions such as in IPython).
- **Locals are now properly changed in the debugger** -- along with set next statement and auto-reloading this can make a debug session much more enjoyable!
- Added a way to skip functions on a step-in on functions with **#@DontTrace** comments:
- **Makes it possible to skip a lot of boilerplate code on a debug session!**
- Can be enabled/disabled in the debugger preferences;
- Ctrl+1 in a line with a method shows option to add **#@DontTrace** comment (if enabled in the preferences).
- Debugging Stackless is much improved, especially for versions of Stackless released from 2014 onwards (special thanks to Anselm Kruis who improved stackless itself for this integration to work properly).
- Reload during a debug session is improved and more stable:
- Only updates what it can in-place or adds new attributes;
- Shows what's being patched in the console output;
- New hooks are provided for clients which may want to extend the reload;
- Compiled modules are now indexed, so, **fix import with Ctrl+1 now works with itertools, PyQt and other 'forced builtins'**.
- When diffing a Python file, the PyDev comparison (with proper syntax highlighting) is now the default.
- When finding a definition in a .pyd file, if there's a related .pyx in the same location, it's opened.
- Running unit-tests will not try to import files that are in folders that don't have an __init__.py file.
- Alt+Shift+O can be used to toggle mark occurrences.
- Ctrl+3 not bound by default anymore on PyDev so that it does not conflict with the Eclipse Ctrl+3 (Ctrl+/ can be used instead).
- Fixed recursion issue when finding file in pydev package explorer.
- When configuring the interpreter, links are not followed when resolving entries for the PYTHONPATH.
- It's possible to launch a directory containing a __main__.py file executable.
- Fixed issues when creating django project without any existing project in the workspace.
- Fixed deadlock on code-completion.
- __pycache__ folders are hidden by default.
* **Organize imports**:
- When saving a file, if automatically organizing imports, don't remove unused imports even if that option is checked.
- When saving a file, if automatically organizing imports, and nothing changes, don't change the buffer (so, no undo command is created).
- @NoMove can be used in an import so that the import organizer doesn't mess with it.
- Fixed error when moving resource in PYTHONPATH to a dir out of the PYTHONPATH.
- On a search make sure we search only python files, not dlls (which could give OutOfMemory errors and make the search considerably slower).
- Multiple fixes on the rename module refactoring.
