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.

Submitted by Monday, 25 March, 2002 - 10:37

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.

New ErrorSource API
Submitted by Tuesday, 27 November, 2001 - 10:49
The changes are as follows:
- The EditBus plugin has been dissolved, and all classes have been moved to the ErrorList plugin. So you must remove any dependencies on "EditBusPlugin" from your plugin's property file.
- All ErrorSource API classes have been moved to the "errorlist" package; so you will need to add "import errorlist.*;" where necessary.
- To register an error source, you must now call:
