jEdit 4.1pre3 now available
Submitted by Tuesday, 20 August, 2002 - 20:14
After a brief hiatus, jEdit development has resumed. Go download 4.1pre3
and tell me what you think. The most interesting new feature in this release is probably the addition of regular expression syntax highlighting rules. Also auto-completion in the Open File dialog box has been improved, and an option has been added for jEdit 4.0-style tool bar placement.
jEdit development resumes
Submitted by Friday, 2 August, 2002 - 18:35
I have started work on jEdit again. You can find the beginnings of 4.1pre3 in the CVS, although currently the only changes are a few minor tweaks and bug fixes. There will be more changes soon, with an actual 4.1pre3 release before the end of August.

jEdit 4.0.3 now available
Submitted by Saturday, 15 June, 2002 - 09:02
To make things easier for those on dialup, I have uploaded 2 unified diffs, one to patch the jEdit 4.0 source to 4.0.2, and the other to patch the 4.0.2 source to 4.0.3. They are only 10 Kb or so, so this beats having to download the whole package for each bug fix release, assuming you don't mind compiling from source, and using the appropriate tools to apply the patches.

jEdit 4.0pre8 now available
Submitted by Monday, 25 March, 2002 - 10:37

it, test it, and report the bugs. 4.0final will follow very soon after this.
jEdit 4.0pre7 now available
Submitted by Sunday, 10 March, 2002 - 07:20
jEdit 4.0pre7 is now available
for download. 4.0pre8 will be a "release candidate", and 4.0final will follow soon after.
I'm pretty confident this release is very stable, in fact it should be more stable than 3.2 was. So I encourage as many people as possible to download and test it; if you're still using 3.2, give this release a shot, I think you'll like it very much.

A problem saving the euro sign (and a solution)
Submitted by 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.
New version of jEditLauncher available
Submitted by Sunday, 30 December, 2001 - 12:27
To upgrade an operating version of jEditLauncher, simply unpack the contents of the archive in your jEdit installation directory. The file jeshlstb.dl_ may be deleted. If your current version of jEditLauncher is not working for any reason, copy the contents of the archive in your jEdit installation directory, run jedit.exe /i from a command line, and reboot your machine if requested to do so.
In connection with the development of jEdit 4.0, jEditLauncher will be enhanced further to provide additional logging options and to wrap more of jEdit's own command line option for greater flexibility and ease of use.
