jEdit in v10.0 Apps
I tried to install jEdit on my shiny new OS X v10.0 the other day, and noticed that it failed to install properly. It simply created a folder. So I headed over to Krisko's web page to see what was up -- he did the jEdit port for OS X. There's a not-too-encouraging message on his homepage:

"Looks like Java is pretty much broken under the final version of MacOS X. Lets hope they do something about it soon so jEdit works they way it should."

However, from the comments posted to this original story, there is a solution! 'Mojo' created a package from the latest preview release, and it works perfectly! Download it from his iDisk, linked in the Favorite Apps box on the left edge of the page.

jEdit under the PB worked once the permissions had been set to 755 on the binary, I take it that this is not enough now...

I have been using jEdit 3.1pre3 just fine. I packaged it up with the dev tools and post it on my site if people want it.

I just placed the packaged up version on my idisk. Anyone who wants to try it out please let me know if it works. Download from my iDisk Thanks.

Thanks for the package, it worked as expected. I'll update the link in the Faves box to point to your iDisk, at least until the jEdit home page has a Mac version.
