New Release (0.8.5)

Wow... quite some work to reach it... I wanted to go directly to 0.9, but I believe code completion is still not complete enough for it...

The things I'm still missing are:
- Make the code completion on method parameters;
- Make other heuristics so that we get the locals on code completion;
- Better heuristics for finding a variable definition, so that we can use code completion in many other scopes.

I would also like to support the new decorators syntax, added in python 2.4. I have done some research on it, and it does'n seem pretty. Seems that I have to update 2 grammars, as the parsing is based on the jython parser (or I could wait for them, but I don't know how long will it take for someone to do it) *- Sight -*

Well, I guess that it is good for now...

Hope you enjoy the new release (lot of effort to make it happen).

PyDev just keeps getting better all the time!
Being able to customize the colors is really nice.
Code completion is still not working for me. I suspect
it is because I have some modules that are doing quite
a bit at load time. I'm going to clean up those
modules and see how it goes then.
Thanks for the great work
