jEdit 5.2pre1 is out!
Submitted by Vampire on Tuesday, 27 May, 2014 - 17:08
Hello everyone,

I proudly present jEdit 5.2pre1, the first preview development release of the 5.2 series of jEdit.

Detailed changes can as always be found in the Change Log at http://jedit.org/CHANGES52.txt, but here are some of the major features of this version:

This is a time-based release, scheduled to come out about 1 year after jEdit 5.1, and is a collection of enhancements, bug fixes and patches submitted by the community. Detailed changes can be found in the Detailed Change Log.
There are no major new features in this release. You can think of it mostly as a bugfix release, although there are quite a lot of UI enhancements also.
With continued support from the community, we will keep releasing a newer version each year that can accurately bring together the fruits of everyone's labor. Thank you to each and every one of the contributors who helped make 5.2 the best version of jEdit ever.



Volunteers are always welcome to contribute to the future of jEdit:

Have fun with the new release.
jEdit 5.1.0 is out!
Submitted by Vampire on Monday, 29 July, 2013 - 22:25
Hello everyone,

I proudly present jEdit 5.1.0, the first stable release of the 5.1 series of jEdit.

Detailed changes can as always be found in the Change Log at http://jedit.org/CHANGES51.txt, but here are some of the major features of this version:
  • VFS WorkThreads have been rewritten into Tasks, making it possible to completely remove the old "I/O Progress Monitor" and the wasteful space it took up in the Task Monitor. Old deprecated classes related to WorkThread and WorkThreadPool have been removed.
  • New Plugin Manager option to check for and disable obsolete plugins. Enabled by default, this will ensure that old unsupported plugins do not interfere with the running operation of jEdit.
  • Added another language to our list of translated languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Czech, Russian, and now Chinese! We are always looking for volunteers to help translate jEdit into Hindi, Korean, or Spanish, or any other language, really! It is fairly easy to add a new translation to jEdit or the plugins.
  • There is now a new encoding Native2ASCII which collapses unicode escapes in ISO-8859-1 files on read and expands characters that cannot be encoded with ASCII as unicode escapes on write. This encoding is the one Java properties should be in.

jEdit 5.0.0 is out!
Submitted by Vampire on Thursday, 22 November, 2012 - 23:13
Hello everyone,

I proudly present jEdit 5.0.0, the first stable release of the 5.0 series of jEdit.

Detailed changes can as always be found in the Change Log at http://jedit.org/CHANGES50.txt, but here are some of the major features of this version:
  • Localization - jEdit now supports switching between default locale, French, German, Russian, Czech, and Japanese. Some translations for those locales are provided, containing common jEdit labels. It is also now possible to add new or contribute to existing translation property files for jEdit core as well as for plugins.
  • Keymaps - named collections of shortcuts. Example keymaps for Emacs, MacOS, German Keyboard, Intellij and classic jEdit are provided, and users can create or customize them.
  • New Editing options: Disable or simplified automatic indentation, and default response when opening a large file.
  • Updated html/css edit modes with HTML5/CSS3 keywords. Added a dozen new edit modes, updated a dozen more.
  • Scrolling - Many bugs (#2832769, #2998294, #3193168, possibly others), related to soft wrap, multiline delete/cut, undo, and folding, that could cause the text area to be confused about its location, are fixed. This greatly improves the stability of jEdit. Thank you, Thomas Meyer!
