Alternative Linux RPM
Submitted by slava on Sunday, 25 May, 2003 - 00:20
There is now an RPM package for Linux of jEdit 4.1 that bundles all dependencies. Get it from the Download page.
Note that if you use a tool like apt4rpm or urmi, or you use several Java programs, it might be best to use the packages from JPackage instead, where dependencies are unbundled and can thus be shared to save disk space.

This batch consists of 12 plugins, 6 of which are jEdit 4.0-compatible (PMDPlugin, JUnitPlugin, SourceControl, JSwatPlugin, HeadlinePlugin, and CommonControls). All of these plugins work under jEdit 4.1. Some of the plugins in my queue were not included in this batch. Those plugins are listed in the linked message to jEdit-devel and should appear in the next batch if all goes well.

Gruntspud 0.4.0 is out
Submitted by t_magicthize on Saturday, 26 April, 2003 - 20:59
Here's just a few ...

You can now define 'projects'. When you add a project, you provide a home location for it much in the same way as always. However, when you change to a directory that is defined as a project, the entire tree file is loaded. This gives the ability to show that files need attention somewhere in the directory structure (modified, added, conflicts etc) even when the parent(s) are not expanded. The trade-off is that start-up time and memory consumption is higher (especially for large workspaces). I would recommend you try this one ...

An XML parser is now required (this is used for the projects file). Over the next few releases, more and more of gruntspuds configuration files will be migrated to XML. Xerces is included with the source distribution, so if you want (or need) to use JDK13 get that version. The jEdit plugin adds the 'XML' plugin as a dependency.
