Eclipse e(fx)clipse 2.4.0

Primary tabs

The release cycle was focused on implementing missing features for our Text-Editing-Framework so that the control is ready for commercial adoption.

The following features have been introduced

  • overloading and register custom text-actions (eg. triggering content assist on '.')
  • support for line-ruler actions eg to implement a debug-ruler
  • rule improvements to allow special syntax definitions for eg Ruby-String and Multi-Line comments
  • improve text-paritioning when using a rule-based engine to align with the Java-Editor in Eclipse
  • add support for Context-Informations (including presentation of HTML content)
  • add support for QuickLinks (CTRL+Click)
