 http://www.jedit.org/ruby/

This release gives you:

- Introduce variable refactoring.

a closing char present.
- Progressive selection now handling method selection better.

Other features include:

- Syntax highlighting
- Syntax error checking
- Edit history navigation
- Auto indent and insert end
- Integrated RDoc viewer
- Quote and bracket completion
- Structure browser
- Type-based code completion
- Progressive selection
- File structure navigation popup

- Code folding
- Code markers
- Split panes
- Autocompletion of HTML/XML elements via XML plugin
- XPath expression evaluator via XSLT plugin
- Visual diffs via JDiff plugin
- Project managment via Project Viewer plugin

Feedback is welcome.

I followed the instructions, but when I run jedit after installing the
plugins, I get an error message about RubyPlugin.jar:

The following plugin cannot be loaded:
C:\Documents and Settings\vjoel\.jedit\jars\RubyPlugin.jar:
Cannot load: java.util.zip.ZipException: error in opening zip file
The most likely reason is that the JAR file is corrupt; try
reinstalling it. See Utilities->Troubleshooting->Activity Log
for a full stack trace.

What did I do wrong?

I downloaded it again with the same result.

The file also fails to open with java when I right click in Explorer and
select "open with... java". Same error, essentially.

This is a completely clean install--I've never used jedit before.

I guess nothing (except I did it wrong as well).

The problem seems to be, that the server sends these jar-files with
content-type text/plain, which could cause Firefox (what do you use?) to
not treat it as binary files.

Downloading with InternetExplorer could work (its autodetection of
content-type identified the file as being .zip), but I never tested it.

Used wget to download and it works.

It is not an issue with jedit but the server configuration. I guess.

Ouch, slow download, 0.3KB/sec!  Are there any mirrors?

I decided to download this by 'coralizing' the URLs so these JARs should
become cached in the Coral CDN.

    http://www.coralcdn.org/

So, hopefully if people want to download the necessary JARs it should be
fast after these JARs become fully cached.

These are the 'coralized' URLs for the JEdit RubyPlugin required JARs

  http://jedit.org.nyud.net:8090/ruby/RubyPlugin.jar
  http://jedit.org.nyud.net:8090/ruby/jruby.jar
  http://jedit.org.nyud.net:8090/ruby/retroweaver.jar

Thanks! I did use firefox. I'm using wget instead, and.... that did it!

Thanks for the feedback on the download problems. I'm taking steps to
have a more stable download setup.
