digitalmars.D.ide - D Development Tools 0.7.0 Preview Release

I've released a "Preview Release" of D Development Tools 0.7.0 .
It's not the final 0.7.0 release, consider it instead a beta version of it.

This preview release features the new parser that now correctly parses D 
up to version 2.063 . It also passes all automated tests of the 0.6.0 
release, so it should not be too far off in quality and stability from 
that version. But I know there are a few pending bugs and areas that 
need to be tested due changes in the generated AST, hence I'm not making 
it a final release yet.

INSTALLATION:
You can get from this Eclipse update site:
http://updates.ddt.googlecode.com/git-history/pre-release/

You need Java 7 for this. And you can't any other version of DLTK 
(Dynamic Languages Toolkit) other than 3.0. (This mean you can use 
Eclipse 4.x, if you don't have the later versions of DLTK there)

For detailed installation instructions, see:
http://code.google.com/p/ddt/wiki/Installation
(but note you have to use the update site mentioned above, not the one 
mentioned in the wiki. And you don't need to add 
http://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo anymore)

Just installed this under Ubuntu Saucy 64/Eclipse Kepler. This part: "Now the "Interpreter system libraries" locations should be filled automatically." does not happen under Linux. More, in the DDT perspective, there is no option to build the project. Both the gdc and the dmd work well in command-line.

Yeah, the default Eclipse workspace settings is to run a build automatically when a file is saved. You can change that option in the "Project" main menu. -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer

With what compiler, and what's the directory layout of the compiler? It could be a DDT bug, or could be some new layout that DDT doesn't know about. The supported layouts are: DMD: [linux|osx|windows]/bin/ src/druntime/import src/phobos DMD on Linux global install: usr/bin include/d/dmd GDC: bin/ include/d2/<any dir that contains an object.di> -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer

Here is my layout, that I had to manually add. It is the layout installed on Debian/Ubuntu by the official DMD .deb packages here http://dlang.org/download.html /usr/bin/dmd /usr/include/dmd/phobos /usr/include/dmd/druntime/import

I'll have to support that as a new feature: http://code.google.com/p/ddt/issues/detail?id=3 Should be easy, just a few changes to: http://code.google.com/p/ddt/source/browse/org.dsource.ddt.ide.core.tests/src-test/mmrnmhrm/core/launch/DMDInstallType_Test.java and http://code.google.com/p/ddt/source/browse/org.dsource.ddt.ide.core/src/mmrnmhrm/core/launch/DMDInstallType.java
 (BTW, why that "import" folder in the druntime configuration? It
 shouldn't be there, I think, but that's not a problem of DDT).

Why shouldn't it be there? The standard lib is divided in two parts, the runtime and Phobos.
 GDC:
 bin/
 include/d2/<any dir that contains an object.di>

/usr/bin/gdc (no interpreter system libraries)

There has to be an object.di installed somewhere in the system (as well as the other standard library header files). It could be in a zip or some other binary format though (hopefully not).
 OTOH, gdc seems to be configurated in a really outdated manner. The
 console displays:

 --------  Build Commands:  --------
 -v2
 -o"bin/dtest02"

 -I"src"

 "src/main.d"


 gdc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-v2’


 So, after removing the offending "-v2" from the project's "managed
 response file":

 -v2
 -o$/DEEBUILDER.OUTPUTEXE
 $/DEEBUILDER.SRCLIBS.-I
 $/DEEBUILDER.SRCFOLDERS.-I
 $/DEEBUILDER.SRCMODULES

 it works well.

 For installing gdc I used the standard gdc (Ubuntu 4.8.1-5ubuntu1) 4.8.1
 package. It installs gdc v2.

The build file stuff is unrelated to the library locations detection. But yeah, seems the -v2 switch is outdated now, I'll remove it from default response file. -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer

Yes, but both the layout (locations) of the files and the compiler version do. I think newer compiler versions are simply not aware about a "v1" of D. Thank you very much.

 You need Java 7 for this. And you can't any other version of

 can use Eclipse 4.x, if you don't have the later versions of 
 DLTK there)

 the one mentioned in the wiki. And you don't need to add 
 http://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo anymore)

I updated to version .0.7.0, through the check for updates, but the DDT and D perspectives do not show up. They show up on the workspace (no colorful icons), but they are not listed in the 'perferences' and subsequenctly only the default editor shows up. - windows, eclipse 3.8 Thanks, Rob

I updated to version .0.7.0, through the check for updates, but the DDT and D perspectives do not show up. They show up on the workspace (no colorful icons), but they are not listed in the 'perferences' and subsequenctly only the default editor shows up. - windows, eclipse 3.8 Thanks, Rob

This seem identical to the problem Jacob is having: http://forum.dlang.org/thread/kuj9mk$1mbs$1 digitalmars.com#post-kul17b:2412r4:241:40digitalmars.com To you as well: Let me see your configuration log, it's at: Help > About Eclipse > Installation Details > Configuration And also the Error log, it's at "View Error Log" on that same dialog. -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer

 I've released a "Preview Release" of D Development Tools 0.7.0 .
 It's not the final 0.7.0 release, consider it instead a beta version of it.

 This preview release features the new parser that now correctly parses D
 up to version 2.063 . It also passes all automated tests of the 0.6.0
 release, so it should not be too far off in quality and stability from
 that version. But I know there are a few pending bugs and areas that
 need to be tested due changes in the generated AST, hence I'm not making
 it a final release yet.

 INSTALLATION:
 You can get from this Eclipse update site:
 http://updates.ddt.googlecode.com/git-history/pre-release/

 You need Java 7 for this. And you can't any other version of DLTK
 (Dynamic Languages Toolkit) other than 3.0. (This mean you can use
 Eclipse 4.x, if you don't have the later versions of DLTK there)

 For detailed installation instructions, see:
 http://code.google.com/p/ddt/wiki/Installation
 (but note you have to use the update site mentioned above, not the one
 mentioned in the wiki. And you don't need to add
 http://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo anymore)

Seems like the raw HTTP file view of Git repositories in Google Code hosting is down at the moment. This mean the update site is not accessible: http://updates.ddt.googlecode.com/git/ -> fails with a 404 error If you wanna use the update site in the meanwhile, you can get it as a zip from: http://updates.ddt.googlecode.com/archive/aa309c6726c8e8d7635100a34abbad51542ebc9a.zip I've opened an issue with Google Code, as I've seen this happen several times, a bit more often than it should IMO: http://code.google.com/p/support/issues/detail?id=30947 -- Bruno Medeiros - Software Engineer
