PyDev 5.8.0: Code Coverage fixes, IronPython debugging

PyDev 5.8.0 is now available for download.

This release fixed some issues regarding the code coverage integration, and adds support to using the code coverage when running tests using pytest.

There were also fixes in the debugger for IronPython, which had stopped working with IronPython due to its lack of sys._current_frames (although an important note is that IronPython 2.7.6 and 2.7.7 don't work with PyDev because of a critical issue in IronPython, so, either keep to IronPython 2.7.5 or use the development version).

This is also the first release to add a way for clients to hook in the debugger, so, it's possible to customize the representation of custom classes (see for more details).

There were also fixes in the PyLint integration, updating docstrings, finding __init__ on code-completion when it's resolved to a superclass, etc... See: for more details.

Enjoy ;)
