      • Import is now set in correct line even with multi-line imports.
      • Added option to disable the introduction of auto-imports.
      • Added option to remove modules that start with '_' from the imports (so, tokens would have to be found in files).

    • Debugger: Working with wxPython.
  • Release 1.3.4

    • Quick-fix: When an import is added from the auto-import quick-fix, a code-analysis is requested right after it.
    • Minor bugs fixed.
  • Release 1.3.2

    • Fix: The vmargs in the interactive console are now only really passed to the jython process
    • Fix: Rename refactoring was not getting some references that mapped to imports initially (and not directly to classes or functions)

  • Release 1.3.1

    • Interactive Console: jython process can receive vmargs (configured in the preferences page)
    • Code-Completion: auto-import completions will not be brought for tokens in the current module

    • Fix: Find Occurrences: will not 'overlap' occurrences anymore
    • Fix: Code-Analysis: deep attribute access after finding __getattr__ does not signal unresolved import errors anymore

    • Rename refactoring / Mark Occurrences: matches in multi-line strings are now correct
  • Release 1.2.7

    • Mark occurrences and rename now will also get the tokens in comments and strings
    • Rename refactoring bugfixes (but still not final)
    • The remote debugger port can now be specified
