Rpmstubby and cmakeed

Two new plugins are waiting for review in Fedora:

* rpmstubby - Rpm specfile generator for Eclipse features
* cmakeed - CMake Editor plug-in for Eclipse

You should notice that the cmakeed is almost entirely generated by rpmstubby so go on and try it.

Cmakeed preparing to go in Fedora

Thanks to the responsiveness of upstream authors I have prepared a package for the latest (not yet announced :) 1.1.0 RC4 of cmakeed. Test rpm can be found here. As soon as the final release appears I'll put the spec in bugzilla for review.
Hopefully before this I can get as much bug reports as possible so we can really get the best CMake editor.
Feel free to bug me or the upstream authors for any problem/suggestion you may have.

P.S. Don't be confused by the rpm name. You really need Fedora 10 to be able to use it or for those who hasn't upgraded yet (e.g. me) you should upgrade your Eclipse packages and dependencies to Fedora 10.

P.S. 2: The entire spec file was generated with rpmstubby with only 3 manual adjustments so you can really start packaging your Eclipse plugins with it. It has never been so easy :)

Eclipse ShellEd reborn

Today, I've used my commit rights for the shelled plugin for the first time. And I think this was quite a productive day :
* All compatibility plugin requires are removed.
* A lot of deprecated usages are fixed.
* A lot of generification has happened.
* And finally the first bugfix (provided by Mat Booth) - a highlighting for variables with underscore in their name are properly highlighted now.

Future plans include:
1. monitoring the sourceforge tracker for ideas and problems for our current users :)
2. work on rebasing the plugin on dltk to get all these nice things for free :)

And finally we have eclipse-shelled packaged in fedora.

Help, ideas and so on apreciated (If someone is reading this blog ;).
