.. _`rope`:

New Features

* Performing refactorings across multiple projects
* Specifying the number of syntax error fixes in code_assist
* Deprecated `Pycore.create_(module|package)`

`Pycore.create_module()` and `create_package()` have been deprecated.
Use `rope.contrib.generate.create_module()` and `create_package()`

Cross-Project Refactorings

`rope.refactor.multiproject` can be used to perform a refactoring
across multiple projects.  See ``docs/library.txt`` for more

`code_assist` Changes

`rope.contrib.codeassist.code_assist()` takes two new optional
parameters.  `maxfixes` parameter decides how many syntax errors to
fix.  `later_locals`, if `True`, forces rope to propose names that are
defined later in current scope.  See ``docs/library.txt`` for more
