Pydev release 1.2.2

Yeap, version 1.2.2 it's already out.

Code-completion had special attention in this release. After using it, it's hard to imagine how did I program without those features for so long... easy to get used to some things hum?

Ok, the difference is not the same as not having the extensions code-analysis, but still...

Well, check the details at: and for the extensions:

Just stumbled upon your Eclipse plugin after trying out far too many Python editors (I almost always end up back at emacs for these kind of things).

I have to say - it's fantastic! The environment is clean, complete and stable - which seems quite rare these days. I plan to use it for most of my python development from now on.

Great job, and I hope you keep up the good work!

Does that mean that code-completion works in the interactive console now? I just downloaded everything and tried it again and it still didn't seem to work. Do I need to use jython for it to work? or what?

No... that means that you can write in the editor (with code-completion) and then select that code and send it to the console.

PyDev is great. Nevertheless, here are features that I would like to see.

- spaces to tabs: it is much more convenient to edit a file with spaces, but it is better to save it with spaces. Could PyDev open a file and convert spaces to tabs for editing, but save it after converting tabs to spaces, again?

- Is there a UML tool for eclipse that supports reverse engineering and code generation for Python?

- drag & drop: still a missing feature of eclipse, I know :-(

yeah Bernd, I am trying Enterprise Architect (the link you gave) but actually the reverse engineering doesnt work well there. all elements declared as self. are not recognized.

Using it the other way, a class diagram doesn't generate __init__ methods. I think I will continue looking for other sources. best regards, Pablo
