 New Features
 ============
 
-* inline variable can now inline variable in other modules
-* handling only_current option for inline in other modules
-* better extension module handling
-* added `rope.contrib.findit.find_definition()`
-* added `rope.contrib.changestack` module to perform many refactorings
-  as a single command
-* added `rope.contrib.fixmodnames` for fixing module and package names
-* added `rope.contrib.finderrors` module for finding bad name and
-  attribute accesses
-* added ``region`` field to `rope.contrib.findit.Location`
-* added ``remove_self`` argument to `codeassist.get_calltip()`

-Inline Refactoring Enhancements
--------------------------------
-
-Inline variable can now inline variables in other (the ones not
-containing the definition) modules.  It adds import to changed modules
-when needed.
-
-One problem for inline refactoring is from-imports.  If a name is
-imported as ``from mod import f`` then after removing the definition
-of `f`, these imports should be removed; rope does this now.
-
-Also ``only_current`` option of inline didn't work in other modules;
-it was fixed.
-
-`rope.contrib.changestack`
---------------------------
-
-`changestack` module can be used to perform many refactorings on top
-of each other as one bigger command.  It can be used like::
-
-  stack = ChangeStack(project, 'my big command')
-
-  #..
-  stack.push(refactoring1.get_changes())
-  #..
-  stack.push(refactoring2.get_changes())
-  #..
-  stack.push(refactoringX.get_changes())
-
-  stack.pop_all()
-  changes = stack.merged()
-
-Now `changes` can be previewed or performed as before.
-
-`rope.contrib.fixmodnames`
---------------------------
-
-This module is useful when you want to rename many of the modules in
-your project.  That can happen specially when you want to change their
-naming style.
-
-For instance::
-
-  fixmods = FixModuleNames(project)
-  changes = fixmods.get_changes(fixer=str.lower)
-  project.do(changes)
-
-renames all modules and packages to use lower-cased chars.  You can
-tell it to use any other style by using the ``fixer`` argument.
-
-`rope.contrib.finderrors`
--------------------------
-
-`find_errors` function can be used to find possible bad name and
-attribute accesses.  As an example::
-
-  errors = find_errors(project, project.get_resource('mod.py'))
-  for error in errors:
-      print '%s: %s' % (error.lineno, error.error)
-
-prints possible errors for ``mod.py`` file.
-
-Currently this module is experimental and reports many
-false-positives.  Contributions are welcome.
-
-`rope.contrib.findit.find_definition`
--------------------------------------
-
-This function finds the definition of a name, just like the older
-`rope.contrib.codeassist.get_definition_location` function.  The
-difference is it returns a `findit.Location` object like other
-functions is `findit` module.
-
-Also `rope.contrib.findit.Location` has a new field called ``region``
-it is a tuple that holds the start and end offset of the occurrence;
-this can probably be used in IDE's that highlight locations.
-
-Better Extension Module Handling
---------------------------------
-
-`extension_modules` project config tells rope to import these modules
-if their source code cannot be found.  Rope can now handle nested
-extension modules in normal packages.

 Getting Started
 ===============
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
