Let me know what you think.

get it from:

http://leds.sourceforge.net

(linux 2.6.0 executable available)

you will need to latest version of DUI to compile it
get DUI from http://dui.sourceforge.net

here are the notes and change log
Release Name: 00.08

Notes:
 * leds is usable! and very stable!
 * It's starting to be a very interesting environment for D development.
 * The leds core is beta quality, some featues are incomplete and alpha quality
 * leds is not just a text editor with sintax highligh,
 * leds has an efficient project browser tool and an alpha quality code browser
 * and intelisence tools
 * leds is still missing much needed features:
 * - ask to save buffers before closing leds
 * - the next great improvement needed on leds is to the code broswer
 *   the code browser is also the base for the code lookup (intelisence)



Changes:
 * - search and replace (window level only) (finally!)
 * - remember opened files when last closed
 * - check for file modifications outside leds buffers
 * - creates 'projects' directory if it doesn't exist
 * - right bar with errors, todo and bug tags
 * - right bar shouws project state (no errors, needs recompile, contains
errors)
 * - mark opened buffers when they contain compilation errors
 * - mark opened buffers that where modified
 * - allow selecting the font type and size
 * - allow anti-aliasing fonts
 * - automatic generation of documentations comments (suitable for doxygen)
 * - selection of code page (default, UTF-8,  DBCS) (untested)
 * - ability to create new projects directories (start of a more complete
project creation module)
 * - project can create new packages (start of a more complete code generation
module)
 * - started java awareness
 *   greater java awareness will be usefull for java to D conversion projects
 *   eventually leds will be usable for java projects as well

How does leds highlight the `[2..4]' construct? So long!

two floats. (it just uses scintilla default highlighter) [start..4] .4 = float [3..end] ??? every thing is on the number color between '[' and ']' Ant

For the life of me, I can't figure out how to download the files from sourceforge. I'm using Epiphany in gentoo linux (and also tried Mozilla 1.5). It's no go. The screen is just filled with junk as the web browser tries to display the file instead of download it. I also tried right clicking on the link and "save link as..." but this only saves the indirect link location to disk, not the actual gzipped file. I figure there must be a way to set Mozilla up using the MIME types, but I don't know how. Strange, because I haven't had trouble downloading leds before.

Never mind, I succeeded in KDE using Konquerer, a much smarter browser, I guess. I'll give the updated leds a try out.

Epiphany is a derivative of Mozilla, as is firefox and the older firebird. I don't know why firefox works and Epiphany and Mozilla don't work for the download. I may download firefox and try it out later (I use it almost exclusively on Win XP). You're already using xFree 4.4.0? You're brave. I heard it's not being adopted or supported on a number of linux distributions because of weird licensing changes. Personally, I wish they would do away with the huge bulky xfree system and put a small/light server in it's place. It's network centric design does not make it ideal for the modern single user desktops. In order to avoid crashes, maybe firefox needs to be recompiled for the new xfree 4.4.0. Later, John

Sorry Ant... the response wasn't for you.... To Dowload the file, press Shift key... hold pressed, then click in link to download the file... A little more... after download it execute: gunzip leds_00.08.72_bin.gz to uncompress it, at the end must make the file executable with: chmod +x leds_00.08.72_bin Now you can run the new leds editor :-) regards Julio

Thanks for the tip, but this still doesn't work in Epiphany or Mozilla 1.5. In Mozilla it just downloads the indirection link (a 1K file) and names it the same as the *.gz file.
 
 
 A little more...
 after download it execute:
 
 gunzip leds_00.08.72_bin.gz

I know how to do this. :-)

I use mozilla and ephifany and download ok.... pressing and hold shift key... then click in link to download try this mirror: hold pressed Shift key and click here.... http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/leds/leds_00.08.72_bin.gz Run in Mozilla and Epifany and konqueror...... I'm using mozilla 1.4 but that's the way for force download a file. You also can change the MIME type regards Julio

That link above worked without even having to press and hold the shift key. All I had to do was click on it and a dialogue box popped up as I expected. I did change the MIME type earlier. Perhaps that's why it worked (although it didn't work earlier when I tried at the original sourceforge site). Either that or your link was direct and that's all that was needed. Thanks, John

I had the problem, too, with Firebird. However, it never was a problem, as I could always right click into the window in which the file was displayed, and choose "save page to disk"... Sebastian

Hi Ant. I have been testing some leds features. You have done a great work, leds begin to be great... :-) Anti-aliasing fonts work fine. Defined fonts and sizes ok too. I think you must capture the font size specified in the dialog font and set it in preferences dialog. Now you must expecify by hand. UFT-8 is implemented, but you can't select it in preferences dialog, allways is set to *default* :-( I have changed by hand, editing the file .leds/preferences.leds and setting parameter: 'codePage: UTF-8' It work fine for some utf-8 characters.... like ñ á..... but others like Ñ, € seems to be wrongly codified. I can see it correctly in leds and SciTE, but not in utf-8 terminal. At now I haven't enought time for investigate it... but i'll find for it. regards Julio Jiménez

Thank! (I think it's wanderful)

yep, that requires a change on the properties programs. I though that anyone could enter the font size in 3 seconds and that would same me a couple of hours developing. (I'm thinking on enhancing the properties and move them to from leds to DUI.)
 
 UFT-8 is implemented, but you can't select it in preferences dialog,
 allways is set to *default* :-(
 I have changed by hand, editing the file  .leds/preferences.leds and
 setting parameter:   'codePage:       UTF-8'

I over look that - it's fixed for the next release;

Let me know. If it's on my side I'll try to fix it. (but the problem existing also on Scite...) Ant
