What would you like to see before 4.1final?
Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 20 August, 2002 - 20:21
I am planning on implementing searchable help in 4.1pre4. What else would you like to see before 4.1 goes final? Post your comments below.
jEdit 4.1pre3 now available
Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 20 August, 2002 - 20:14
After a brief hiatus, jEdit development has resumed. Go download 4.1pre3 and tell me what you think. The most interesting new feature in this release is probably the addition of regular expression syntax highlighting rules. Also auto-completion in the Open File dialog box has been improved, and an option has been added for jEdit 4.0-style tool bar placement.

Download community macros from within jEdit
Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 6 August, 2002 - 20:01
The newly-released MacroManager plugin by Carmine Lucarelli enables you to download macros from the jEdit community site. This should make it much easier to customize and extend jEdit using the macros provided by the community.

I have started work on jEdit again. You can find the beginnings of 4.1pre3 in the CVS, although currently the only changes are a few minor tweaks and bug fixes. There will be more changes soon, with an actual 4.1pre3 release before the end of August.

Gruntspud CVS client plugin release 0.0.6-alpha
Submitted by tanktarta_magicthize on Saturday, 15 June, 2002 - 16:51
This release containes fixes for the :pserver problems, new actions such as Log (with a useful report dialog), Import, History, Erase. There are some extras such as a 'New Folder' action that creates a folder then adds it to CVS and a simple .cvsignore front end (although the filter is still rubbish). There is a 'Explorer' style view that can be used instead of the Files / Folders tab when there is more space available.

The toolbar is getting quite large now, so an 'All tools' button hasbeen added to help when docked in jEdit, but I'm not 100% happy with. Suggestions are welco
jEdit 4.1pre1 now available
Submitted by slava on Saturday, 15 June, 2002 - 10:08
Hot on the heels of the 4.0.3 release, the first pre-release in the 4.1 series is now available. Check out the change log; lots of new stuff here.
jEdit 4.0.3 now available
Submitted by slava on Saturday, 15 June, 2002 - 09:02
To make things easier for those on dialup, I have uploaded 2 unified diffs, one to patch the jEdit 4.0 source to 4.0.2, and the other to patch the 4.0.2 source to 4.0.3. They are only 10 Kb or so, so this beats having to download the whole package for each bug fix release, assuming you don't mind compiling from source, and using the appropriate tools to apply the patches.

Does anyone find the message boards useful?
Submitted by slava on Monday, 10 June, 2002 - 00:11
It seems the message boards section of this site is not being used very much, and I must admit I don't follow the postings much either. Perhaps this section should be shut down, and everyone encouraged to just use the mailing lists instead? Post your comments below.
