  1. Hi,

    this is to inform you about the release of eric3 3.8.0. It is available
    via

    http://www.die-offenbachs.de/detlev/eric3.html

    The list below summarizes the difference between eric3 3.7.x and 3.8.x

    - too long list of bugfixes to mention here
    - these usability enhancements

    DEBUGGER
    -- added possibility for path translation for passive debugging
    and remote debugging (Configuration Dialog -> Debugger -> General)
    -- added support for project specific debugger settings
    (see Project menu -> Debugger)
    -- added support for special watchpoint conditions
    (variable is created, variable is changed)

    DOCUMENTATION GENERATOR:
    -- added capability to generate source documentation using CSS style
    sheets to the eric3-doc utility (including the default style and
    a style with reversed headers) (Note: eric3-helpviewer cannot
    show the styles due to the limited HTML support in QTextBrowser)
    -- added the flag '-t' to eric-doc and eric-api to tell them
    to look for additional files

    EDITOR:
    -- added additional lexers (CSS files, TeX files,
    Diff files, Make Files, Properties Files and Batch Files)
    (QScintilla > 1.5.x is required)

    GENERAL:
    -- some interface cleanups and little reorganization of the
    configuration dialog
    -- added action to open multiple files
    -- added the capability to use %-codes for entering command line
    arguments. Supported codes are:
    %D directory of the current editor
    %F filename of the current editor
    %H home directory of the current user
    %U user name of the current user
    %% the percent sign
    This functionality is available in the following dialogs:
    configuration dialog, Debugger->General page
    version control system, Command Options
    cvs, Execute Command
    subversion, Execute Command
    mercurial, Execute command
    Tools Configuration
    -- added a configuration option to set the default encoding for
    files, that don't contain an encoding marker

    GRAPHICS:
    -- added the capability to delete shapes to the graphics dialogs

    PROJECT MANAGEMENT
    -- some optimisations and additions in the project browsers
    -- added configurable filetype associations for projects
    -- changed "Add file dialog" to allow the addition of
    multiple files to the project

    RUBY:
    -- enhanced Ruby support (thanks to Richard Dale)

    SHELL:
    -- changed the shell completion to use the Scintilla userlist.
    It is activated by pressing the TAB key and deactivated
    by pressing the ESC key (without selection) or the TAB or
    ENTER key (with selection).

    TASKS
    -- extended task management with categorization and a colorized
    display

    TEMPLATES:
    -- added a templates system

    TOOLS:
    -- added support for cx_Freeze (FreezePython)
    -- added support for PyLint

    USER INTERFACE:
    -- added the commandline option "--nokde" to disable usage of the
    KDE dialogs
    -- switching the editor will highlight the current file in
    the project browser
    -- added a context menu for the "Listspace" view manager
    -- added an incremental quicksearch to the search toolbar

    VERSION CONTROL:
    -- added support for Mercurial VCS

    What is it?
