New DrJava Beta Release: drjava-beta-20110822-r5448

We have made a new development release available: drjava-beta-20110822-r5448. You can download it from the DrJava website [1] or from SourceForge [2].

Available for download at http://drjava.org [1].

DrJava is a lightweight programming environment for Java designed to foster test-driven software development. It includes an intelligent program editor, an interactions pane for evaluating program text, a source level debugger, and a unit testing tool.

In addition to bug fixes, this beta release includes a two new features introduced after the last development release:

  1. The debugger has been revised to interface properly with functional language level files. The source line numbers shown in the debugger now consistently correspond to the source files open in DrJava, even when the source files are language level files. During tracing, line numbers corresponding to augmented code that does not appear in language level files are mapped to -1.
  2. A compiler adapter for Java 7 has been added to DrJava. Unfortunately, the adapter does not find the Java 7 compiler on Windows unless DrJava is started from a JDK installation rather than a JRE installation. As a result, running this release on Windows with Java 7 will typically invoke the bundled Eclipse Java compiler rather than the Oracle/Sun Java 7 compiler.

    Note: Java 1.4 compatibility has been dropped. To use DrJava, you will need Java 5 or newer.
