User manual

No, still have not done it...

But it's starting to annoy me that there is no real manual, I mean, the FAQ ( already covers most 'usual' doubts, and some simple steps are provided on how to get started, but there is still nothing to cover the way from the basics to the advanced topics, making the learning curve deeper that it should be...

Also, for some reason, some questions keep being asked in the forum over and over again (probably my fault in the end anyway), so, I'm starting to think that spending some time on a good manual would be a 'time-saver' in the end.

I'll probably make this a 'new year resolution' ;-)

Still learning to use google analytics

Yeap... I checked it again, and discovered that actually north america has more visitors than other continents, it just wasn't appearing because it didn't have as much visitors from single cities... ( and I probably still have a lot to learn about it) -- but the 'single visits' where right :-)

Now, pydev development: pydev is in need of a new release, but I really don't have time to do it right now... hope I'll get some time to do it this year (altough I'm highly skeptical about that myself).

Good thing is that the current release appears very solid. Te bugs are mostly for peculiarities, and I belive they don't affect 99% of the pydev users -- even though I have NO idea of how many pydev users there are out there ;-)

Coming back

Hi All,

I'm slowly catching up to all the pydev-related things again (its awesome the number of e-mails you can get in 2 weeks), altough I still didn't have time to code anything, my first priority will be making pydev compatible to eclipse 3.1.1 (its strange, eclipse 3.1 plugins should be compatible to that version, but there is always some minor changes that renders many things incompatible, even in only-bug-fixes releases).

Aside from that, I installed google analytics in pydev -- it's really nice knowing that there are people from all over the world accessing the pydev homepage (I need to put a link to it in the blog, but until there:

So, if you're curious about it, let me put some things that have gotten my attention:
- the single city that has accessed it most is Beijing (China)... a little more than 3% of the total hits in a month... It's large population may have something to do with it :-)
- Europe is crowded with hits, I can't even distinguish the cities (and Paris is the second in hits, with almost 1.8% of the hits in a month)!
- North America had less hits when compared to the ones above
- And to finish, South America had only a few hits
