I'm proud to announce version 2.0.0 of EclipseFP, the Eclipse plugin for Haskell coding. The change in the major version number shows that some big changes have been made, even if under the hood:
- the Antlr parsing has been removed
- the JFace based syntax highlighter has been removed
We now rely solely on Scion and the GHC API to provide lexer tokens! This fixes some long standing syntax highlighting bugs while giving us more options for coloring.
Also, we now communicate to the Scion library via standard streams instead of network calls, which should solve some headaches.
There are also loads of bug fixes and small enhancements peppered a bit everywhere, either things that people asked or things that I did for myself, since EclipseFP is (of course) my IDE of choice for my Haskell coding. The release notes can be found here.
Another good news is that I'm not alone in hacking at EclipseFP, scooter has helped a lot with Helios, Cabal 1.6, GHC 6.10 and Mac OS X support, and has a few new features coming up soon!
Just point your Eclipse to the EclipseFP update site, and happy Haskell hacking!!
