What would you like to see before 4.1final?
Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 20 August, 2002 - 20:21
I am planning on implementing searchable help in 4.1pre4. What else would you like to see before 4.1 goes final? Post your comments below.
jEdit 4.1pre3 now available
Submitted by slava on 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 slava on 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 4.1pre2 now available
Submitted by slava on Sunday, 23 June, 2002 - 06:26
jEdit 4.1pre2 is now available.
jEdit 4.1pre1 now available
Submitted by slava on Saturday, 15 June, 2002 - 10:08
Hot on the heels of the 4.0.3 release, the first pre-release in the 4.1 series is now available. Check out the change log; lots of new stuff here.
jEdit 4.0.3 now available
Submitted by slava on 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 icon pack now available
Submitted by slava on Thursday, 6 June, 2002 - 04:06
A jEdit icon pack, containing various icons in a variety of sizes and formats, is now available from the Icons and Images page. Thanks to Kris Kopicki for contributing this.
jEdit 4.1 development begins
Submitted by slava on Monday, 27 May, 2002 - 08:10
I have recently begun working on jEdit 4.1. You can see some early work in the CVS repository. Changes so far include improved printing, improved syntax highlighting, various user interface improvements, SOCKS proxy support (for people behind an MS proxy server), and more. You can find a full change log here.
Two reviews of jEdit

Recently, two positive reviews of jEdit were posted, one on a web site dedicated to MacOS X, the other on a web site about Linux.
Take a look at this review, and this one.

jEdit 4.0pre8 now available
Submitted by slava on Monday, 25 March, 2002 - 10:37
Ok everybody, this is the 4.0final "release candidate". You know the drill: download it, test it, and report the bugs. 4.0final will follow very soon after this.
jEdit 4.0pre7 now available
Submitted by slava on 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.
jEdit 4.0pre6 now available
Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 19 February, 2002 - 07:39
jEdit 4.0pre6 is now available from the jEdit web site. Go download it, and post feedback in the usual places.

Submitted by slava on Tuesday, 5 February, 2002 - 07:55
jEdit 4.0pre5 is now available. The main focus of this release is stability. If you encountered problems with earlier 4.0 pre-releases, please give pre5 a go, and post your comments either in this article, on the mailing lists, or in the #jedit IRC channel on
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.
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.
