PyDev 1.5.6 has been released

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.

Fabio Zadrozny from Aptana, the author of PyDev plugin,  passed this information through mailing list:

This Release Highlights:

  • Django integration:

    • New Django project can be created through twizard

    • Can set an existing porject as a Django project (right-click project > pydev > set as django project) I think this is a kind of Eclipse's personality, like those of Maven2 plugins where you can declare that this project is a  Maven project

    • New Django project can be created throughtwizard

    • Can remove Django project config (righ-click project > django > remove django project config)

    • Custom actions can be passed to the configured through ctrl + 2 + dj django action -- if not action is passed, will open to choose from a list of previously used command

    • Predefined/custom actions can be used through right-clicking the project > django > select custom action

    • and settings module configured

    • Django shell (with code-completion, history, etc) available

    • Run/Debug as Django available

    • See: for more details

  • Find/Replace:

    • The search in open files is no longer added in the find/replace dialog and now works through Ctrl  + 2+  s word_to_find (in the PyDev editor) and if no word is passed, the editor selection is used

  • Go to definition:

    • Properly works with unsaved files (so, it will work when searching for a definition on an unsaved file)

    • Properly working with Eclipse 3.6 (having FileStoreEditorInput as the editor input)

  • Editor:

    • Automatically closing literals

    • Removing closing pair on backspace on literal

    • Improved heuristics for automatically closing (, [ and {

    • Removing closing pair on backspace on (, [ and {

    • Ctrl + 2 + sl (sl comes from 'split lines' -- can be used to add a new line after each comma in the selection

    • Ctrl + 2 + is (is comes from 'import string' -- can be used to transform the selected import into a string with dots

  • General:

    • Code-completion properly working on relative import with an alias

    • Fixed racing issue that could deadlock pydev (under really hard to reproduce circumstances)

    • Removing reloading code while debugging until (if) it becomes more mature in the python side

    • Fixed issue where a new project created didn't have the source folder correctly set

    • Text selection in double click no longer has weird behavior

    • Local refactoring working on files not in the PYTHONPATH

    • Edit properly working on string substitution variables

    • Using with statement on python 2.5 no longer makes lines wrong in the AST
