[ANN] TabSwitch 1.5

http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/TabSwitchPlugin

Changes:

  • Fixed NullPointerException when no project open.

  • Added native IDEA look to popup window (thanks to Alexey Efimov).

  • Now uses same icons as on the editor tabs.

  • Added option to always show recent files even if tab limit is greater

than 1 (see the file config/options/tab_switch.xml in your configuration
directory)

  • The plugin now uses Java 5 features and is retroweaved to work on jdk

1.4.2 and below.


Description:
Open files/tabs switcher: allows to quickly switch between tabs with
less keystrokes than Recent Files. Open files are selected from a list
in most recently used order. This works very much like Alt-Tab in
Windows or Ctrl-Tab in Opera. By default the action is mapped to Alt-A,
but another popular assignment is Ctrl-Tab.

This plugin was initialy developed by Timur Zambalayev but I started
fixing some bugs caused by openapi changes around April 2004. Since then
I have taken over development.

Enjoy!

Bas,

That purpose of using retroweaver for plugins?
As i know IDEA will run only on JDK 5. I'm wrong?

Well, as far as I know since jdk 5 still hasn't officially been released
for the Mac, IDEA will run on jdk 1.4.2 there.

Unfortunately not, it's supposed to be able to run on 1.4 too.
That makes plugin development a pain because all the OpenAPI
is 5.0 (cool) but yet you have to make sure stuff still runs on
1.4 (very uncool). And every now and then you see someone
reporting an UnsupportedClassVersionError.

I can't wait for IDEA to run on 5.0 only!

Vince.

Hello Alexey,

Demetra will run only on JDK 5. IDEA 5.0 and 5.1 support JDK 1.4.2 and 1.5.
