digitalmars.D.announce - New little features in Descent

Hi!

I ported some code and features from Eclipse 3.4 and 3.5 to Descent, 
which are already present in the Java Development Toolkit for Eclipse 
(JDT). These features are:

- The popup is nicer when hovering a symbol, showing it's icon and 
allowing to open the ddoc view or the declaration.
- The popup also shows compile-time values of constant variables and 
enum members when available.
- The completion proposal list is nicer, showing the declaring type or 
module in grey (it's cleaner to the eyes). Also fields and methods are 
separated by ":" from their type.
- When hovering a method with ctrl hold, two options appear: "Open 
Declaration" and "Open Implementation". The first one just jumps to the 
method declaration. The second one opens a popup showing the classes or 
interfaces that implement that method, allowing you to quickly navigate 
to one of them. This is very useful when programming to interfaces.

Here's a video showing all of these things:

Enjoy!

Thanks again! I don't know if it's a platform specific problem but I cannot update Descent on my Ubuntu. I get this message: An error occurred during provisioning. Failed to prepare partial IU: [R]descent.core 0.5.6.20090817. Cheers Piotrek

I can't enter dsource now. And yesterday I had to retry several times to upload the files. dsource is working very badly since yesterday, so that must be the problem. Please try again later. :)

Hi Ary,

well done.

Here is a small bug report about the code fomatter:


=============================
import tango.io.Stdout;
import tango.core.Exception;

void main(char[][] args)
{
    try
    {
        /* Do some stuff */
    }
    catch (IOException ex)
    {
        Stdout.formatln("Caught IOException!");
    /* Consequence: Clean up and possibly try again. */
    } catch (Exception ex)
    {
        Stdout.formatln("Caught unexpected exception!");
    /* Consequence: Die as gracefully as possible. */
    }
}
=============================

You can see, the first catch-block is placed from a new line, but the second
catch-block is not. Could you please fix this issue?

Thanks in advance.
