Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce here that Spyder version 1.1.0 has been released:
http://packages.python.org/spyder

Spyder (the Scientific PYthon Development EnviRonment) is a free open-source Python development environment providing MATLAB-like features in a simple and light-weighted software, available for Windows XP/Vista/7, GNU/Linux and MacOS X:
    * advanced code editing features (code analysis, ...)
    * interactive console with MATLAB-like workspace (with GUI-based
list, dictionary, tuple, text and array editors -- screenshots:
http://packages.python.org/spyder/console.html#the-workspace) and
integrated matplotlib figures
    * external console to open an interpreter or run a script in a
separate process (with a global variable explorer providing the same
features as the interactive console's workspace)
    * code analysis with pyflakes and pylint
    * search in files features
    * object inspector: automatically retrieves docstrings or
source code of the function/class called in the interactive/external
console
    * online documentation viewer (pydoc)
    * integrated file/directories explorer
    * MATLAB-like path management
    * project management
    ...and more!

Spyder is part of spyderlib, a Python module based on PyQt4 and
QScintilla2 which provides powerful console-related PyQt4 widgets.

Some of the major changes since v1.0.0 (433 commits!):
    * A lot of bugfixes!
    * IPython integration within the external console (still experimental)
    * QScintilla2 is now optional (a whole pure PyQt4 code editor -faster than its QScintilla's counterpart- has been implemented): brings code folding and code completion
    * Improved Matplotlib's figure options feature (added support for image parameters, added an "Apply" button)
    * Added: Project Explorer plugin (Pydev projects may be imported)
    * Added: Online help browser plugin (based on pydoc)
    * Editor new features:
        * Unlimited horizontal/vertical splitting: each new editor panel is a clone of the first panel, allowing comparing two parts of the same file
        * Unlimited independent editor windows creation
        * Flag vertical scrollbar area: shows warnings, TODOs, FIXMEs and occurrence highlighting of the whole file
    * External console: added import/export features to the variable explorer

Cheers,
Pierre
