PyDev 3.3.3 Released


Fabio Zadrozny

Hi All,

PyDev 3.3.3 has been released

Details on PyDev:

Details on its development:

LiClipse (PyDev standalone with goodies such as support for Django
Templates, Kivy Language, Mako Templates, Html, Javascript, etc):

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.

Release Highlights:

* **Important**: PyDev requires Eclipse 3.8 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For
older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x (see LiClipse: for a PyDev standalone with all
requirements bundled).

* **Code Completion**:

- Compiled modules are now indexed and shown in the context-insensitive

- In an empty file, a code-completion request will show options related
to creating modules (press Ctrl+Space twice to show only those templates).

* **Performance**:

- 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).

* **Debugger**:

- **Locals are now properly changed in the debugger** -- along with set
next statement and auto-reloading this can make a debug session much more

- 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
- 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

- See: Auto Reload in Debugger: for more details.

* **General**:

- 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 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 file

- 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.

* **Refactoring**:

- Fixed error when moving resource in PYTHONPATH to a dir out of the

- 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.
