Congratulations to the plugin contest winners!

Hello everyone,

We're happy to announce the results of the second IntelliJ IDEAL Plugin Contest!
The winners are:
Grand prize: XSLT Debugger by Sascha Weinreuter
Second prize 1: Struts 2 by Yann Cebron
Second prize 2: Database Navigator by Dan Cioca

The Team Leader's Choice prize goes to Steve Chaloner for the IntelliJad
plugin - and actually the entire team liked his plugin so much that we decided
to make it a "Team's Choice" prize and to increase the prize sum to $3000.

And the honorable mentions go to three more great plugins from our community:
- Spell Checker by Alexey Efimov and Sergiy Dubovik
- xStructure by Sylvain Francois
- Grok by Paulo Mattos and Hugo Francisco Baes

Huge thanks to everyone who participated in this year's contest, and congratulations
again to the winners! We're very much looking forward to your participation
in the next year's contest. :)

And for the curious, my colleagues have taken some pictures during the final
judgement meeting:

Congratulations to all!

IntelliJad is indispensable to me and I am starting to evaluate Database Navigator.

Great job to everyone and thanks to JetBrains for sponsoring this!

I'm actually a bit disappointed to see Identifier Highlighter (very useful when reading existing code) hasn't received anything....
At least an honorable mention.
I mean, come on!

Hello Alexander,

Identifier Highlighter was initially released quite a while before this year's
contest started, so the only things we could evaluate were the improvements
done during the contest period. Which weren't too many, as you can see from
the release notes of the plugin.

Is it allowed to start writing a plugin before the contest starts, as long as it is not released before the contest starts? The terms of the contest say "You may optionally submit a plugin which already exists in the IntelliJ IDEA Plugin Repository provided you develop new/extended/enhanced functionality for the Contest. Such entries will be judged solely on the new functionality." which does say anything about when you may write the first line of code. So it would be possible to start developing already now something for IntelliJ IDEAL Plugin 2008 and release it early in the contest.

Hello Esko,

long as it is not released before the contest starts? The terms of the
contest say +"You may optionally submit a plugin which already
exists in the IntelliJ IDEA Plugin Repository provided you develop
new/extended/enhanced functionality for the Contest. Such entries will
be judged solely on the new functionality."+ which does say
anything about when you may write the first line of code. So it would
be possible to start developing already now something for IntelliJ
IDEAL Plugin 2008 and release it early in the contest.


Since we don't have any way to validate when you wrote the first line of
code, this would indeed be possible.

Now that the contest has been over for more than two months: When are we going to get our t-shirts?

Got mine a couple of days ago, at which point my daughter immediately puked all over it. If I'm raising an Eclipse user I'm going to be very disappointed.
