EclipseFP 2.4.1 released

Hello, a quick release  to patch a bug in the preferences page, causing a NullPointerException, if you don't have buildwrapper set up at all.
There is also an enhancement done with a new call to BuildWrapper, which has been bumped to 0.6.4: autocompletion also shows local variables. This only works if your module could be compiled successfully (so that we could get a GHC AST to retrieve the local bindings). One area of work where EclipseFP could improve would be to be able to automatically recover from some errors to be able to generate the AST and the related information even in the face of errors.

As usual, point Eclipse to to update. Release notes are here.

Thanks to all the users for updating and telling me of issues, and also for all the kind words I received!

EclipseFP 2.4.0 released!

Hello, I've just released version 2.4.0 of EclipseFP, the set of Haskell development plugins for Eclipse, along with BuildWrapper 0.6.3 and scion-browser 0.2.13.
The main change in that version is the support for HTF and the Haskell-specific test results view, which removes the dependency on the JDT Junit View. I've blogged about these changes earlier, here and here.
There are also improvements in GHCi support and various bug fixes.

The release notes can be viewed here. To install or update, just point your Eclipse to the update site

Thanks to all users, and especially to all the people that submitted bug reports and requests for enhancements. Now, I'll also accept pull requests :-).
Happy Haskell Hacking!

EclipseFP and HTF: demo video

The next version of EclipseFP will integrate with the upcoming version of HTF, a great Haskell Framework for automated tests. As a preview of things to come, I've uploaded a video on YouTube.
In this video, I create a small library project, using the tutorial code from the HTF tutorial, then use the HTF Test Suite wizard in the Cabal editor to generate automatically the cabal test-suite stanza, the main module and a test module per library module I want to test.
The I paste in the actual HTF code, and run the test suite. The results show in the new Haskell Test Results View. I correct the mistakes, wait for the rebuild, and the tests pass!

This will be part of the EclipseFP 2.3.3 release (or maybe I'll call it 2.4), that will be released probably as soon as HTF version 0.10 is released.

I'm still experimenting with screen captures and YouTube video, so apologies if the video is not crystal clear. Best viewed on the large viewer, I guess.
