PyDev 4.4.0 released

PyDev 4.4.0 is now available for download

The main changes in this release include:

  • Improved PyDev Package Explorer to give more information when all elements are filtered -- it seems it was common for new users to end up in a state where there was no working set selected while having a working set filter...
  • Code completion improvements: when a parameter is typed in the docstring, assigning it to an instance gives proper code-completion results when accessing the instance.
  • Fixed issues dealing with ansi colors in the interactive console.
  • When autopep8 is applied as the code formatting engine, the region selected is used to specify the lines for formatting.
  • Minor improvements in the debugger.
For those using LiClipse, there's a critical fix dealing with TextMate/SublimeText bundles (and PyDev has also been upgraded), so, please upgrade...

Hi, I'm interested if using this release is possible to apply refactoring over multiple projects in workspace at the same time.

regards, Dan

Hi Dan,

PyDev should apply refactorings over multiple projects as long as the projects are related... i.e.: you have to set which project depends on which project (this is done at: select project > alt + enter (to see properties) > project references).

Thanks Fabio, is working and, as I didn't use it before, I want to ask you if I should expect other side efects by configuring Project References.

By using project references you have also enabled having code-completion from the referred project in the referrer project ;)
