Eclipse 3.6 is here

The Helios release train is here and with it the new Marketplace that allows users to install plug-ins in the comfort of their homes... er, cubicles. Of course, Erlide 0.8.4 is available from there too!

Hi!

It's not a bug. Erlang source code still has to be ISO-latin-1 (see http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/stdlib/unicode_usage.html) and we have to support support even R12 that knows nothing about utf-8.

To top that Eclipse needs to know if a file is utf-8 or ISO-latin-1 and we can only choose latin-1.

best regards,
Vlad

Hi,
Yes, just like in my answer above, source code has to be latin-1 (ISO-8859-1)

Vlad,

Could you provide more information on how to install a nightly build of ErlIDE? I'm unable to use ErlIDE because of ticket #3023947 on sourceforge.

The ticket's creator says that 0.8.5 indeed fixes the problem, but apparently it's a nightly build and I cannot find how to find it (or install it).

Can you help?

0.8.5 is available right now from http://erlide.org/update_nightly

Vlad,

The main project page for Erlide doesn't mention anything about compatibility with Eclipse 3.6 (it only mentions 3.5), but this post and the one before it makes it sound like it does work with 3.6. Is that right?

Thanks,
Matt

Hi Matt,

Yes, it works with 3.6 too and even with 4.0. I'll update the docs to mention that.

regards,
Vlad

Great! Thanks! I've just started reading Erlang and OTP in Action by Martin Logan et al. and I'm looking forward to trying out the code samples. :)
