Hello Pythonistas,

I just uploaded eric 21.3. It fixes some bugs and adds these new features.

  * General
      o changed the default file format for several generated files to
        be based on JSON
      o added support for Cython
  * Debugger
      o added capability to delete environment variables for the
        debugged script by adding a '-' to the variable name in the
        start dialog
  * Debug Viewer
      o changed code to show project relative paths in the breakpoint viewer
  * Editor
      o integrated the "Quick Search" functionality into the editor
        search widget
      o added support for Cython to the code outline/navigation lists
      o added support for Cython to the Typing Completers
  * File Browser
      o added capability to show/hide hidden files (i.e. those starting
        with '.')
      o added capability to create new files/directories and delete them
      o added Cython support to show the file structure of these files
  * Mercurial Interface
      o added support for Mercurial 5.7
  * MicroPython
      o added support for "Raspberry Pi Pico" (i.e. RP2040 based boards)
      o extended the list of supported (recognized) CircuitPython boards
      o added capability to manually configure devices not yet known by
      o added a generic dialog for flashing UF2 capable devices (with
        device detection)
      o added code to support 'middle button paste'
  * pip Interface
      o changed code for the search function to work with the PyPI
        search page because the XML-RPC search interface of PyPI is
        still disabled
      o extended the Package Details dialog to include buttons to
        install, upgrade or uninstall the package

It is available via the eric web site or PyPI.
