Upload Your Apps to the Chrome Web Store Now, and Bug Fixes for Apache Tomcat 7.0.

Bug Fixes for Apache Tomcat 7.0

Apache Tomcat 7.0.2 beta is now available.

Apache Tomcat 7.0 introduced support for the Servlet 3.0, JSP
2.2 and EL 2.2 specs, and web application memory leak detection and
Generic CSRF protection. This 7.0.2 release contains bug fixes for
Tomcat 7.0, including a fix for a regression that prevented running
with a security manager enabled.

Clojure 1.2 With Protocols and Datatypes

Clojure version 1.2 is out now.

Clojure 1.2 introduces protocols and datatypes, and support for
annotations. It also enhances existing features such as the
sequence library, destructuring and agents. The latest update –
from RC2 to Clojure 1.2 – features bug fixes for the closed-over
variables and the reader and writer.

New Programming Language Wrapper for iOS

Scribble is a new programming language wrapper for iOS devices,
designed so coders can ‘scribble’ on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
devices without having to switch into the modal character insertion
panel. This means that the Scribble language allows developers to
write on a touchscreen device without a physical keyboard, for
rapid prototyping on a handheld device.

Currently, Scribble is targeting Ruby via the JVM. It is
currently in the early stages, but offers some syntactical changes
from Ruby, including variable allocation using ! and one-place
lambda creation using ,,

IntelliJ IDEA 10 EAP Gets New App Server

A new build of IntelliJ IDEA 10 EAP is out

The 96.974 build adds an action for creating a single JAR
artifact containing modules with all dependencies, and a
spellchecker for commenting the field of VCS commit dialogue. There
is also a new application server setup in the ‘New Project’

The IntelliJ IDEA version 10 public EAP program is open now.

Upload Your Apps to the Chrome Web Store –

A developer preview of the Chrome Web Store is
now live, and what’s more, developers can now upload their apps
using the developer registration flow of the Google Chrome
Extensions Gallery. Developers can also experiment with packaging
their apps, installing them in Chrome through the Chrome dev
channel, and integrating the Chrome Web Store payments and user
authentication infrastructure.

The Chrome Web Store will be launching later this year.

Bug Fixes for Debug Visualisation 0.8.1

Debug Visualisation version 0.8.1 is out now, fixing some bugs in
the 0.8.0 release.

Debug Visualisation is an Eclipse plugin which provides a
structural view for variables in debug mode. It also uses the Zest
framework to aid the developer in getting an overview image of the
structures in memory.

Fixed bugs include the incorrect trimming of long titles, and an
instance where arcs were incorrectly removed from the graph. With
this release, it is possible to turn off name trimming if desired,
and the values of variables is now displayed as a hover.
