Java 2 standard edition, 1.4 release candidate out!
Submitted by slava on Wednesday, 23 January, 2002 - 00:52
Sun has released a release candidate of JDK 1.4; you can download it here. A change log is available; from the looks of things, this is mostly a bug fix release that rounds out the new APIs introduced in 1.4. Post your experiences with the 1.4 release candidate below! I imagine jEdit 4.0pre4 and JDK 1.4RC1 would make a great combo! Smiling
jEdit 4.0pre4 now available
Submitted by slava on Wednesday, 23 January, 2002 - 00:21
jEdit 4.0pre4 is now available for download. This release adds soft wrap, includes the jEdit FAQ, has an improved plugin manager that shows plugin download sizes, has an improved 'complete word' command that can complete keywords, and much, much more.You can find a change log here.

New downloads category: Edit Modes
Submitted by slava on Sunday, 20 January, 2002 - 09:42
Currently, it contains a mode that performs additional syntax highlighting for Ant build.xml files. If you have written a mode which you think others might find useful, but which cannot be included in the core, submit it here. Modes like this include extended Java modes that have a list of all classes, or HTML modes that include a list of all HTML tags.
Plugin Central updates
Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 15 January, 2002 - 06:00

  • BufferTabs 0.7.6: switched to Ant and DocBook; fixed an EditBus-related memory leak; requires jEdit 3.2.2 and JDK 1.1

  • WhiteSpace 0.9: switched to Ant and DocBook; all highlighting options except fold highlighting now default to false; WhiteSpace toggle actions are now buffer specific; requires jEdit 3.2.2 and JDK 1.1

BufferTabs works with both jEdit 3.2 and 4.0. WhiteSpace only works with jEdit 3.2.2.

Updating plugins to work with soft wrap
Submitted by slava on Saturday, 12 January, 2002 - 09:08
Converting offsets to screen locations
The following methods have been deprecated: yToLine(), lineToY(), xToOffset(), offsetToX(). These methods do not support the concept of one "physical" line being split over several "screen" lines.

Instead, you should now use the xyToOffset() and offsetToXY() methods.
A bonus of using these methods is that in most cases, there is no need to perform physical to virtual translation; these methods operate on offsets from the beginning of the buffer.
Site upgrade in progress
Submitted by jgellene on Saturday, 12 January, 2002 - 05:18
We are in the process of upgrading the content management software used by jEdit Community to the latest version (0.702) of Post-Nuke. During this period, many of the features of the site may not be available. Thanks for your patience; we should have everything up and running again soon.
JProjexx 0.3 and an example plugin available
Submitted by jgellene on Friday, 11 January, 2002 - 18:54
Version 0.3 of the JProjexx framework for project management is now available. The Downloads area has an archive containing jar files for JProjexx and a new beta version of the Sessions plugin that has been refactored to use the framework as a "proof of concept". The archive file also contains detailed javadocs for both JProjexx and Sessions. The next phase of development will cover an extension of the JProjexx class hierarchy specifically to cover Java-based projects and a component that will query the jEdit environment for project-aware plugins.
Web links, anyone?
Submitted by jgellene on Friday, 11 January, 2002 - 11:22
The Web Links area of jEdit Community is intended to provide visitors with links to resources that may be of specific benefit to users of jEdit, most of whom are working programmers and many of whom are Java programmers. We don't need links to the major commercial vendors (you know who they are), but if you have come across a resource that is especially helpful to you in your work, particularly if the resource is an Open Source package or application, please submit a link listing and share your discovery with the thousands of people who visit jEdit Community.
A problem saving the euro sign (and a solution)
Submitted by jgellene on Monday, 7 January, 2002 - 20:02
You need to use instead the iso-8859-15 character set, which is a modification of iso-8859-1 that includes the Euro sign and some Finnish and French characters. The Euro sign represents character value 0xA4 in this 8-bit set.

There is a new addition to the downloads area, euro.bsh, that can be used as a startup script to provide macro methods to help you with your use of the Euro. The methods let you insert a Euro currency character, change the current buffer's encoding to iso-8859-15, and open a file with that encoding.
Plugin Central update: WheelMouse
Submitted by slava on Friday, 4 January, 2002 - 07:28
Back from a too-short holiday vacation, I've just now had a chance to release the latest batch of plugin updates. This is a small one, consisting only of a new version of the WheelMouse plugin for jEdit 3.2.2/JDK 1.4.

* WheelMouse 2.2: updated to no longer beep when scrolling too far up or down; requires jEdit 3.2.2 and JDK 1.4

Happy solstice to all, and Happy New Year to my fellow Gregorian-calendeers.
