This release enables Snipmatch to insert code snippets into arbitrary text editors. Special support (Java-specific template variables, Create Snippet context menu) for the JDT Java editor still exists, but snippets can now be inserted into other editors as well. The snippet’s author can restrict a snippet’s applicability to certain file types or extensions, thus making it possible to create snippets that apply, e.g., to *.xml files only. (Development of this feature was kindly sponsored by Alte Oldenburger Krankenversicherung AG.)
Moreover, this release enhances subtype-aware code completion to also boost local variables, fields, and methods if their type is a subtype of the current context’s expected type.
