PyDev 2.0

First the latest news: PyDev 2.0 is released.

The main features introduced are:

* TDD actions similar to those available in the Eclipse Java Development Tools (i.e.: create class, method, field, module with Ctrl+1 quick fixes);

* Code-coverage support has improved a lot (note that it relies on having the coverage module from installed).

The full release notes may be found at:

PyDev 2.0

Unfortunately I couldn't be at PyCon to represent PyDev this year -- where there was a panel on Python IDEs -- so, at least I got to do a video with the presentation I'd do there :)

Another nice thing is that PyDev won the “Best Developer Tool” award from the Eclipse Foundation!

PyDev is a finalist in the Eclipse Community Awards

Actually, this is something that's already old news (announced more than a week ago) but I couldn't manage to get time to post about it sooner, as I'm pretty busy coding for the next PyDev release ;)

PyDev has been named one of the finalists for the Best Developer Tool in the Eclipse Community Awards (the other finalist in this category is Diver).

So, just wanted to share the good news for PyDev :)
