Name        : spyder
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 2.1.2
Release     : 1.fc16

Summary     : Scientific Python Development Environment
Description :
Spyder is a Python development environment with advanced editing, interactive
testing, debugging and introspection features. It is especially recommended
for scientific computing thanks to NumPy (linear algebra), SciPy (signal and
image processing), matplotlib (interactive 2D/3D plotting), MayaVi’s mlab
(interactive 3D visualization) and -of course- IPython support.

Spyder may also be used as a library providing powerful console-related PyQt4

Update Information:

=== Bug fixes (since v2.1.1) ===

  * General:
    * Patched external path library to avoid a crash with a user HOME directory with non-ascii characters
    * Doc/README: warning the user about the fact that the 'python setup.py install' method does not uninstall a previous version
  * Console:
    * Fixed "!AccessInit: hash collision: 3 for both 1 and 1" error (see Issue 595)
  * Project explorer:
    * empty workspace/critical bugfix: impossible to create/import projects from context menu (this bug was introduced with a recent revision and stayed unnoticed until then because one has to test this from an empty workspace)
    * it is now possible to rename projects (safely)
    * now handling the I/O errors (e.g. read-only configuration files) occuring when loading/saving projects or the workspace: warning the user when an !IOError exception was raised and mention the projects which could not be saved properly
  * File/Project explorer:
    * keyboard shortcut 'F2' (rename file/directory) was broken
    * the "Open" action (context menu) was failing silently for directories (expected behavior: open an external file explorer to browse the directory)
    * programs.start_file/bugfix: feature was not working on Windows 7
  * Editor:
    * Fix empty username in new file template on OS X (patch by Christoph Gohle)
  * Object inspector:
    * Rich text mode was not showing headings when invoked from editor (Issue 690)

=== Enhancements (since v2.1.1) ===

  * File/Project explorer:
    * Added "Delete" keyboard shortcut to remove selected file(s)/folder(s)
    * SCM integration: added support for !TortoiseHg v2 (only v1 was supported)
  * Console/Matplotlib options: the backend may now be set separately from the Matplotlib patch

=== Other changes (since v2.1.1) ===

  * Console:
    * The Matplotlib patch is only applied for Matplotlib <=v1.0
    * !PyQt API version issues (error like "!ValueError: API 'QString' has already been set to version 1"): the "ignore setapi errors" option is disabled by default, to avoid masking these errors and associated tracebacks
