Pydev Extensions

Until September 2009, two versions of Pydev existed: an Open Source version, and a shareware version called Pydev Extensions. Certain advanced features such as code analysis, quick-fixes, and remote debugging were reserved for the non-free version. On September 3, 2009, Aptana announced Pydev version 1.5, a combined version of Pydev and Pydev Extensions, all available under the open-source Eclipse license.
