digitalmars.D.announce - Descent 0.4.1 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

Don't forget to run eclipse with "-clean" so that the new version of the 
plugin appears in the update dialog.

This is a maintenance release that improves overall memory and speed 
performance. There is also some new funcionality:
- Some suggestions made in the newsgroup related to the formatter were 
implemented (like unindenting group-modifiers) and also some bugs were 
fixed. Again, thanks go to Robert Fraser.
- Now special tokens (like __FILE__) are highlighted in the editor 
(italic and light grey by default, but this of course can be configured).

Any suggestion, critic or bug report is welcome. You can use:

Ary, Eclipse just wouldn't update Descent for me. I ran Eclipse with -clean, I uninstalled Descent, deleted the jars, uninstalled it again, disabled it, and was about to just wipe Eclipse altogether, when I found the "features" directory and delete what was left from Descent there. Then, I could make a fresh install of Descent. Would it be too much to ask you guys to make it possible to update like any other Eclipse plugin, without having to do anything special?

Thanks for the tip, I didn't know you could do that in an easier way 
than uninstalling and installing. I've just read:

http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-Update/keeping-up-to-date.html

There's a new maintenance version, just a bug fix (ticket #22) and some 
little performance improvments, 0.4.2. To get it you have to use the old 
way. It happens that in previous plugins the feature.xml didn't include 
the URL of the update site, so it didn't know where to check for 
updates. From now on (>= 0.4.2), the feature.xml will include this 
information, and will allow simplifying the update process.

I'll also update the wiki to tell how to update easier if you already 
have Descent installed.

Regards,
Ary
