JIDE 3.2.0 With JDK7 Support

Version 3.2.0 of the JIDE Swing
component, is now available. This release introduces a new line
wrapping feature for the StyledLabel component so now, when calling
setLineWrap(true), the styled label will automatically wrap,
without the need to add line breaks to the text. MarkerArea and
MarginArea have been added to CodeEditor: a MarkerArea can be
placed next to a vertical scroll bar, where it displays an overview
of errors in a large component; and a MarginArea is also placed
next to a component that has a vertical scroll bar, but it can
scroll with the content in the viewport. TableDiffPane supports the
diff of two tables, and 3.2.0 is the first release of JIDE
officially supporting JDK7. JIDE have now stopped supporting JDK5,
although the release “should” still run on JDK5.

A free license is available for open source projects.

release requires at least Java 5 to run.
