[Ann] BashSupport 0.1

There's now a custom language plugin for Bash scripts which is called BashSupport. It's available in version 0.1 and offers the following features:

- Most syntax elements of bash 3.2 are supported
- Syntax highlighting
- Basic support for syntax error messages
- Basic code folding support for functions and command groups
- Basic support for commenting / uncommenting code
- Basic brace matching
- Supported file extensions .sh and .bash

Currently it's for Idea 8.x but if there's some interest I can try to fix it to work with earlier versions of IntelliJ.

Oh, thank you very much! I have been using it for a few days now and did not come over any problems yet.
Would be nice if it had a separate highlighting option for `command` strings (and also supported nesting "`command2`").
And a highlighting of $variables would be a big bonus.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Hi,
thank you for the feedback.

Would be nice if it had a separate highlighting option for `command` strings

This is supported now. The default setting is that "" and '' strings are highlighted in the same way.

(and also supported nesting "`command2`").

Not yet support. It's planned though.

Highlighting of $var is also planned.
