PyDev 5.5 released

The main features introduced in PyDev 5.5 are:

  • Ctrl+Shift+Alt+O allows jumping directly to the last hyperlink in the console (which means that when you have some exception on the console, it can be used to got directly to the error location without using a mouse).
  • Ctrl+2, sw switches the target and value in an assignment (but may not work properly if more than one '=' char is found in the line).
  • The code-completion which adds a local import can now be configured to add the local import to the top of the method, not only in the line above the current line (to use it, request a code-completion for some token which needs to be imported, then press tab to focus the completion pop-up and apply the completion with Shift pressed).
  • Another improvement in code-completion is that it now properly supports method chaining and provides 'value' and 'name' fields when accessing enums.

Apart from those, multiple bug-fixes are also available (in refactoring, hovering on debug, parsing nested async calls on Py3 and grouping imports).


p.s.: Thank you very much to all the PyDev supporters and Patrons (http://www.patreon.com/fabioz), who help to keep PyDev moving forward.
