Jedit Proxy settings password encryption
Submitted by decuman on Friday, 16 December, 2011 - 01:39
Hello,

I just noticed that my proxy settings password (which I do not want to expose to anyone) goes directly to .jedit/properties files with no encryption which, i believe, could be unsafe. Is it possible to add a simple encryption and instead of putting it explicitly into the preference file just encode it with some hashing function.

Thanks,
Nik
