Submitted by Saturday, 9 August, 2003 - 06:24
jEdit 4.2 development is going well and there will be a feature freeze soon so that I can focus on making 4.2final more stable than 4.1 ever was. Does anyone have suggestions for features they'd like to see in the editor core before 4.2final?
jEdit nominated in JDJ 2003 Editors' Choice Awards!
Submitted by Wednesday, 11 June, 2003 - 21:36
jEdit has been nominated
in the JDJ 2003 Editors' Choice Awards; as announced in the June 2003 issue of Java Developer's Journal magazine.
The Editor-in-Chief of JDJ, Alan Williamson, nominated jEdit, saying: "The plugin architecture alone wins my vote, even beating Eclipse's. To say this is just a text editor for code is definitely underselling this wonderful example of software engineering."
Well done Slava and the rest of the jEdit team!

getting Java classes to be highlighted as KEYWORD2
Submitted by Sunday, 8 June, 2003 - 18:35
I am new to JEdit and really like it! The one thing I wanted to change right away was that there is support for function highlighting but not for highlighting common Java classes, which I am used to.
EditPlus has 1800 such keywords in a plain text file so it was pretty easy to import them into jEdit's java.xml file.
I wrote up a quick explanation and posted the relevant files here:
Thanks to everyone who works on jEdit, this is an awesome program!
jEdit 4.2pre2 now available
Submitted by Friday, 30 May, 2003 - 03:52
The main focus of this release is a new folding engine that should be much more efficient. Not only is folding faster, but general display tasks such as scrolling should be zippier too.
Also, the plugin loader and API has undergone much improvement and debugging -- it is now stable enough to start porting plugins to. Developers, please update your plugins -- users will thank you for the reduced startup time.
There are also a number of new features, such as a kill ring, files in the favorites list, and a new BeanShell release.
Thanks to Carmine

Second call for a jEditLauncher maintainer
Submitted by Wednesday, 14 May, 2003 - 03:33
jEditLauncher is currently unmaintained and since I don't run Windows there is nothing I can do about it. Can someone at least update the version number shown in Add/Remove Programs? right now it says "jEdit 4.0"! There are many other things that need to be fixed, so it would be nice if it had a maintainer. If the code remains unmaintained it will eventually be removed from the jEdit distribution, so if you like jEditLauncher, please help out!
