Opened up my Eclipse, and got notified that there is now a 1.1.15 version of CFEclipse! (I should have known this anyway as I'm on the mailing list, but looks like I missed that one! Ooops!).
Looks good! Some new features are sweet – particularly that you can now sort CFC methods to alphabetical and back again, in the CFC methods viewer.
The new snippet preview is nice, and the snippet trigger is good – however it is a tad buggy so be careful.
- You can't use a trigger that is only a single character – so don't even try. no 'c' or 'f' or 'g'. It has to be at least 2 characters.
- When changing your snippet triggers, they may not show up as changed when you look at it again – this is because the plugin doesn't actually delete the old trigger, so it will still be able to be used. So I suggest choosing wisely before setting your triggers. (That being said, you can manually change triggers via the eclipseworkspace.metadata.pluginscom.rohanclan.cfmlkeyCombos.properties file, it's pretty easy, and takes effect straight away)
- Supposedly you need a whitespace character before your trigger, otherwise when you hit CTRL+I, it won't work. I haven't seen this one happen, but keep an eye out for it.
Overall, however, the upgrade is nice, provides some good bug fixes, and these bugs can be worked around.
Oh yeah – and despite the controversy, they are still using my Icon ;o) (Although I'm sure someone will come up with something better eventually).
