Mark Wielaard: New GPG key. Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

Code completion and import management works as before - which means it might be a little surprising (see my old blog entry for tips), but it works. Unfortunately, my two other pet peeves are still there: No toggle comment, and no mark occurrences jumping - which is extra problematic since there's no Find Usages for the JavaFX support. I took a quick peek at the sources, and adding it is trivial - so I submitted a patch. In the meantime, you can download this .nbm plugin file and install it via Tools > Plugins if you want to get these two features.
