Version 0.6.1 of jEdit's Ruby Editor Plugin has been released and is
available for download!

For details and downloads go to:

Type identification for the method completion popup has been improved
based on the feedback I received today. I was surprised at how quickly
I was able to add some irb style type identification. Our new method
completion technique is unstoppable! ;-)

The 0.6.1 release removes the unnecessary "complete method" action
hook that was causing people problems in 0.6. The completion popup
should appear automatically when you type a '.' after a variable, no
need for an action shortcut.

Have fun. Feedback is welcome. I'm glad to get this method completion
release out the way and to prove to the doubters that type based
method completion is possible and hopefully useful in a Ruby editor.

If you like what you've seen so far please blog about the jEdit Ruby
Editor Plugin or give it a del.icio.us bookmark
<http://www.jedit.org/ruby/>. Thanks.

Cheers,
Rob

0.6 introduces two major new features that will make you more
productive when you write Ruby code, particularly if you are new to Ruby:

- Method completion for the Ruby core types via a popup that appears
when you type '.' after a variable name. This feature uses the methods
you have already called on a variable to guess it's type, and the
popup is populated accordingly.

- An integrated Ruby documentation viewer (that's modelled after
FreeRide's documentation plugin). While selecting a method via the
completion popup you can see the corresponding method documentation on
the docked documentation viewer.
