Download jEdit 5.4.0

jEdit

 -  100% Safe  -  Open Source

What's new in this version:

Bug Fixes:
- Add NSSupportsAutomaticGraphicsSwitching to JarBundler so that jEdit does not drain the battery unnecessarily on OS X
- Bug fixed, related to resolving symlinks of buffers and checking for updated buffers
- Syntax highlighting broken if non-visible lines change
- Macro Keywords_to_Upper_Case fails to find class
- Macro Display_Shortcuts show no/wrong results
- Select All checkbox initially disabled
- Filename completion prefered longest filename when no match with exact length was found. Prefer the first one
- Beanshell do-while loop bug
- Fix Java_File_Save macro: accept text after class name
- Better choice for text area corner colors
- Gutter lines not aligning with text area lines
- Issue with non-capturing groups in regex search and replace
- Changes to mode files are not detected when ~/.jedit/modes is a symlink
- Cannot change alpha value of a color in the syntax highlighting settings
- Issues with move lines up and down macros
- Documentation bug about where auto-saved files are saved
- Null pointer exception in ChunkCache
- Add missing source and target version to compile-installer task to not accidentally get an installer that needs a newer Java version than jEdit itself does
- Use new version of JarBundler that also sets LSApplicationCategoryType and NSHighResolutionCapable
- Set default colors for foreground and background in syntax highlighting style editor
- Fix plugin crashes on JDK9. Don't pre-connect the returned URLConnection in jeditresource: protocol handler
- ConcurrentModificationException in ProperyManager
- Too short horizontal scrollbar after view resize
- InvocationTargetException with negative printing tab width
- Printing range bug
- Delete a user mode from the catalog even if the mode file is missing
- Plugin Manager: fix missing newline between released and description for plugins without dependencies. Add extra newline for clarity
- Next Char macro doesn't work

UI Improvements:
- Feature Request #520 Environment variables in Find dialog Directory
- UI clean up, button spacing, borders, etc.
- Implemented feature request #493, ask for confirmation before closing all buffers
- Refactor editing option pane into several tabs, allow user editing of modes lists, similar to editing the encoding options lists. This also fixes feature request #515
- Updated NumericTextField to allow decimal numbers and only allow negative sign at the start of a number

Miscellaneous:
- Updated printing system with jEdit specific printer dialog, accurate page range printing, current page printing, printing of selected text only, ability to show page breaks in the text area
- The plugin manager now uses a different URL scheme where the mirror is a URL parameter and not part of the hostname anymore and follows URL redirection properly. This way a file can always be downloaded as we get redirected to a mirror that has the requested file available. Now dead mirrors do not cause the download to fail anymore due to unknown hostname and files that are only available on few mirrors (seldom downloaded files are only available on one mirror sometimes) also work properly. The selected mirror is just the preferred one that is used if the file is available there, just as the label always suggested anyway

API Changes:
jEdit now requires/can make use of Java 1.8 language / libraries. new org.gjt.sp.utils.GenericGUIUtilities class, containing bits of org.gjt.sp.jedit.GUIUtilities suitable for the standalone TextArea package; all methods kept but deprecated and proxies
- refactor Help table of contents loading code to a separate class (HelpTOCLoader). Make relevant members public, so the help TOC is accessible to other code, e.g. the HelpServer plugin

Editing:
- Batch mode updates
- Unicode brackets
- Updates for objectrexx mode
- Mode for m4 macro processor language
- Drawj2d edit mode
- Rust edit mode raw string fix
- Mode for Mavscript 2.0
- New mode for swift
- New mode for Java 9 module-info.java files
- Updated CSS mode provided by AdamS
