PyDev 3.1.0 has been released
Details on PyDev: http://pydev.org
Details on its development: http://pydev.blogspot.com
Important: PyDev requires Eclipse 3.8 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x.
It's now possible to rename a module (using F2 or drag and drop in the pydev package explorer).
Multiple improvements on the rename refactoring.
Automatic code reloading on the debugger (based on xreload).
When a file is changed and a debug session is on, PyDev will automatically reload it (based on xreload).
View https://github.com/fabioz/Pydev/blob/development/plugins/org.python.pydev/pysrc/pydevd_reload.py for caveats/limitations.
Get referrers on debug
Right-click expression or variable in debugger and select 'Get Referrers'
Note: may not work on some Python variants as it needs access to the gc module.
Stackless python is now supported in the debugger, showing all the suspended tasklets in the stack view.
Automatically force focus to Eclipse on breakpoint hit (Enable in prefereces > pydev > debug).
The remote debugger can be left 'always on' (Enable in prefereces > pydev > debug).
If there's an exception while evaluating a conditional breakpoint the thread is suspended and the issue reported.
Option to skip caught exceptions thrown and handled in the same context.
A comment with @IgnoreException can be added to lines where an exception is thrown to have that exception ignored by the debugger when caught exceptions support is turned on.
Improved visualization of frame objects.
Bug-fixes on Jython debugging.
Django: The default PyDev unittest runner can now run Django tests properly
Selecting a unit-test method in the editor and right-click > run as unit-test will run only the selected unit-test.
Ctrl+F9 with test selected will pre-select only that test to run in unit-test.
Improvements on search for references (Ctrl+Shift+G).
Fixed some racing conditions related to the plugin startup.
Organize imports has option to add from imports before other imports.
Improved connection to shell that does code-completion.
Properly supporting creation of shell inside a Jython VM in Eclipse.
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, refactor, debug and many others.
