digitalmars.D.announce - Descent 0.3 released

The Descent plugin for Eclipse provides an IDE for writing, launching 
and debugging code in D.

Explanations on how to get it from within Eclipse are here:

http://www.dsource.org/projects/descent

The site now also includes documentation about how to compile, run and 
debug programs in Descent.

There is only one feature: debugging!

You can now run and debug programs using Descent. The user interface is 
the one well known from Eclipse. The following views are available: 
debug (listing the stack frames), variables, breakpoints, expressions, 
registers and memory. A dissasembly view is planned for a next release.

Currently ddbg and gdb are supported, but other debuggers can be 
integrated easily (read at the end of 
http://www.dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/DebuggingPrograms ).

There are also some bug fixes (for example, the one that made java 
shortcuts not work).

Hopefuly the next version will compile programs without the need to 
specify an external tool.

I forgot to mention that Descent requires Java version 1.5 or greater.

This is a restriction I'll consider to remove in the future (I need to 
remove the generic code).

Hello Mr. Manzana

Thanks for this wonderfull project. I managed to install it but could not make
it compile/debug a small D program... Can You write small how-to how to setup
compiler - I have searched for that option, but could not find it.

Kind regards

Hi Dejan.

Currently Descent doesn't compile projects by itself (i.e. by specifying 
the compiler executable). This will be present in the next release.

You have two options: compile it outside Eclipse or create an External 
Tool to compile the project.

Here's an explanation on how to do the second for Rebuild: 
http://www.dsource.org/projects/descent/wiki/CompilingPrograms

If this isn't your problem, please let me know.

Regards,
Ary
