Language plugin (IDEA 8)

I'm starting to write a language plugin for IDEA 8. The doc says "the lexer is expected to be returned from
Language.getSyntaxHighlighter().getHighlightingLexer();" - well my version of com.intellij.lang.Language does not have this method. Did this API change from 8 to 9? What am I missing?

Hello Jordan,

Please make sure that you're following the updated document from the Confluence
site, not the one on jetbrains.com:

That's a start. Where is the Javadoc for EditorHighlighter etc.? Where do I get the source for the Javascript plugin?

People please, the forum software destroys url's with spaces or something... Will you PLEASE fix this?!?

The correct URL to all these goodies is: http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/IDEADEV/Developing+Custom+Language+Plugins+for+IntelliJ+IDEA
