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.

Submitted by tanktarta_magicthize on Saturday, 8 June, 2002 - 18:43
Let me introduce Gruntspud ....
Gruntspud is a graphical CVS client that may be used either as a plugin to jEdit, or it may be used as a standalone application. It supports a variety of different connection methods including local, ext, pserver and server. About 50% of the main CVS commands are implemented, enough for it to be used for day-to-day stuff. Gruntspud is available for download at Sourceforge.

SQL Plugin: Error with XML 0.8
Submitted by slava on Friday, 19 April, 2002 - 08:42
If you have this error try to rename XML.jar to aXML.jar. It solve it on my machine.

Slava says: indeed. The reason is that XML sets a couple of system properties in its plugin start() method, and if it happends to be loaded after SQL, then the SQL startup might fail. The author of this story says he is working on a patch and will send it to the SQL plugin maintainer over the weekend; so this is just a fix you can use in the meantime.
