Java News from Sunday, December 28, 2003

Slava Pestov has uploaded the eighth pre-release of jEdit 4.2, an open source programmer's editor written in Java with extensive plug-in support and my preferred text editor on Windows and Unix. New features in this release include BeanShell 2.0b1 and syntax highlighting for Lua, SMI-MIB, Swig, PSP, and Poplog-11. In addition many bugs were fixed.
