Pydev 1.3.15 released (new interactive console)

The major highlight in this release is the new interactive console. Details on it can be found at: http://pydev.sourceforge.net/console.html.

Pydev extensions also has some pluses regarding the interactive console (see: http://fabioz.com/pydev)

I'll do a video showing it in more details shortly (probably over the weekend).

This release also has some other nice things, such as having the regular console accepting unicode chars that are not in the ascii range (it uses the sitecustomize.py feature from python to set the correct encoding to be used in the shell) and other bugfixes.

Get it while it's fresh :)

Great! Being a tool fanatic, I wonder whats the next great thing? If I had my way, it would integrating the profiler :-)

Hi Stefan,

I think the profiler is a nice bet -- although there are always other things competing for attention...

Anyways, until the next 'great thing', 1 or 2 bug-fix releases will be available -- while doing the console I had to leave those aside, so, it's time to tackle them again :-)

Thank You Fabio!
I can not image my work without PyDev anymore :-)

The new console is great. How about making IPython one of the console options. This would be even more awsome.

Actually, the last time I checked it, IPython had no real way of being integrated to Pydev (because it relies a lot on having a real tty console, which is not available when run from java), so, it's very unlikely that an IPython integration will be made available... But if you have a feature you're missing from there, please report it in the sourceforge 'feature requests' tracker.

Cheers,

Fabio

One thing I'd love is a way to activate the unit test with a keyboard shortcut...unless I'm just missing how to do that. It's a bit of a nuisance to right-click, select "Run", and then "Run as Unit Test". However, thanks for all your hard work on PyDev.

Regarding running the unittest, take a look at:

I still wish ipython and eclipse could coexist... that would be a "game-changer" imho.
