LiClipse 3.2.1

The new LiClipse release is out.

The major updates were actually to PyDev, which has fixes such as a regression added on 5.3.0 where Ctrl+1 was not properly resolving symbols from dependent projects, code analysis on a particular case with PEP 448 (list unpacking), auto-indents async and await blocks, highlights async and await blocks and fixes an issue in the code completion using aliases.

It does have one new feature in which Ctrl+Shift+O (which fixes unresolved tokens by adding the needed imports) uses the improved sorting also used for the code-completion (so that tokens from the project appear before tokens from other projects, which in turn appear before tokens from the standard library). Also, the substring completion is now on by default (it may be turned off in the code-completion preferences).

Still, besides the updates to PyDev, the stock LiClipse themes were improved so that the current selected tab colors (on the active or inactive views) can be configured (selectedTabInitialBackground and selectedTabActiveInitialBackground in the theme preferences) and some colors were changed to have better defaults in a number of themes.
