Pydev 1.6.1 released

This release was anticipated a bit because of a critical fix to the debugger, which was not working in python 3 (the thread module was renamed to _thread and this wasn't properly dealt with).

Also noteworthy in Pydev 1.6.1:

There are actions to restart the last launch (Ctrl+Shift+F9 in pydev editor) and terminate all launches (Ctrl+Alt+F9 in pydev editor). Buttons were also added in the console output view of pydev launches to activate those (so, it's now easier to restart a given launch after code-changes).

2to3 is now integrated in pydev. To use it right click a folder or file and choose the menu "Pydev > Apply 2 to 3".

What's the difference between Ctrl+Shift+F9 and Ctrl+F11 ?
What's the difference between Ctrl+Alt+F9 and Ctrl+F2 ?

The difference between Ctrl+Shift+F9 and Ctrl+F11 is that it will kill the process before relaunching (that is, if Ctrl+F11 was properly configured to launch the last launch instead of launch the current selection).

As for Ctrl+F2 I believe it will only kill the selected launch and only when in debug mode (ctrl+shift+f9 will kill all launches)
