o New template variables for next, previous class or method, current module, etc.

o print is now aware of Python 3.x or 2.x
* Code analysis and code completion:
o Fixed problem when getting builtins with multiple Python interpreters configured.
o If there's a hasattr(obj, 'attr), 'attr' will be considered in the code completion and code analysis.
o Fixed issue where analysis was only done once when set to only analyze open editor.
o Proper namespace leakage semantic in list comprehension.
o Better calltips in IronPython.
o Support for code-completion in Mac OS (interpreter was crashing if _CF was not imported in the main thread).
* Grammar:
o Fixed issues with 'with' being used as name or keyword in 2.5.
o Fixed error when using nested list comprehension.
o Proper 'as' and 'with' handling in 2.4 and 2.5.

o Completions for [{( are no longer duplicated when on block mode.
o String substitution can now be configured in the interpreter.
o Fixed synchronization issue that could make Pydev halt.
o Fixed problem when editing with collapsed code.
o Import wasn't found for auto-import location if it import started with 'import' (worked with 'from')
