Unofficial debian packages for last 4.1pre7 jEdit
Submitted by Thursday, 2 January, 2003 - 18:48
This package is built against j2sdk1.4 (188.8.131.52beta-1) taken from Blackbox Java. They work fine for me but remember: use at your own risk.
Plugins and 4.1final
Submitted by Monday, 30 December, 2002 - 22:24
First of all, a number of plugins need to be updated for the new icon set; right now they either look out-of-place or icons don't show up at all. This includes AntFarm, Sessions, JBrowse, AntViz, and maybe others.
Also, I would really, really, like to see someone step up to either take over CodeAid and Jane, or start from scratch to write a code completion plugin that actually works.
I would also like to see ProjectViewer and Gruntspud improve to the point where they are usable for day-to-day work.

I hope the entire jEdit community has a great holiday season. Also, jEdit 4.1pre7 will be out within the next couple of days. After this, there will only be a few bug fix releases until jEdit 4.1final.
jEdit as a Swing component
Submitted by Tuesday, 24 December, 2002 - 17:37
I just wondered whether it was possible (or even reasonable) to consider using jEdit or parts of it as a Swing component to be integrated in applications.
look at syntax.jedit.org
Freezes under Java 1.4.1 with Windows
Submitted by Saturday, 14 December, 2002 - 22:57
This is turning into a FAQ, so I thought I'd post it on the community site. A lot of people have complained that jEdit can hard freeze their windows system after upgrading to Java 1.4.1. If you experience this, the problem is not with jEdit, but with your video driver. Updating the driver to the latest version should solve the problem; downgrading to Java 1.4.0 might also work.
A new toolset for creating web-based user interfaces with Java
Submitted by Friday, 13 December, 2002 - 16:27
Millstone is a user interface library for development of Internet and mobile-based applications with Java. It eases web-based application development, because it provides a wide set of reusable server side components for creation of user interfaces. It provides complete UI component framework utilizing XML and XSLT for terminal independency and themes.
The development model of Millstone is closely related to traditional client-side UI development model. It has a continuous application lifecycle and an extensive event model. Millstone also provides an interface for directly connecting UI components to business logic and data storage.
A plug-in to create GUI ? Why not ?
Submitted by Friday, 13 December, 2002 - 16:22
I am new member of JEdit commuity and using JBuilder I noticed that with JEdit it is not possible to create GUI like JBuilder does.
Would that not be a good idea ?

In other news, my computer has finally arrived in Canada (it was shipped by sea... then it got delayed...) and now I'm waiting for customs clearance. So very soon now, jEdit developement will once again resume at the frantic pace you all got used to at the start of the year.
Making jEdit's feature set more accessible
Submitted by Wednesday, 9 October, 2002 - 18:52
From reading the jEdit 4.1 feature suggestions
article, it seems the majority of suggested features are already in jEdit (wheel mouse scroll, word wrap, saving files in a background thread, window docking, ...). This suggests that users are having a hard time finding out about jEdit's feature set; what can be done to make the learning curve easier?
Moving Plugin Central
Submitted by Tuesday, 8 October, 2002 - 02:07
With Plugin Central's bandwidth requirements averaging nearly 2 gigabytes per day, the prospects of finding a single provider willing to host the site for free from among jEdit's users are not good. Even if the site load could somehow be balanced across servers hosted by multiple providers, the number of servers that would be necessary to make the resource requirements reasonable to ask of volunteers would be large enough to make that possibility even less likely. For that reason, we have established a new jedit-plugins project on SourceForge to host Plugin Central. The transition from Standard Media's server to SourceForge should be completed within the next few weeks.
