    Hi, really cool thing, I use it for a long time now. Finally I decided to switch over to jedit 4.3pre10, working on either openSuse 10.1 (Java 1.5.0_07) or 10.2 x64Java 1.5.0_08). Everything runns finde except of the MayaEditor plug-in, that gives me the following error Message: "Cannot start: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file. Try updating to a newer version of the plugin." What does that mean. Do I even need a newer JDK version? Cheers Felix

    Thank for the links and tutorial, but I cannot find anything about the mayaEditorMacro.bsh and mayaEditor.mel files you mention. Where are these found can you elaborate more on this?

    > would be cool though if i didnt have to save it as mel file to see the pretty pretty colors pretty you can - just set your default edit mode to mel (look at the bottom of the "edit" section in your global settings)

    Hey, thanks to walcottd for mentioning the installation tip, but I am really new at this and still couldn't find out how to make the plugin work. I did this: 1. copied mel.xml to c:Program Files>jEdit>modes 2. edited the catalog file by putting the line walcottd mentioned before the lasrt line of the file 3. started jdeit. I typed some common syntax for maya (and not only) but it didn't highlight. So what did I do wrong or what didn't I do. I opened also the Plugin Manager but couldn't find the plugin there ( or maybe I don't know it's right name) Thaks I would really apreciate some help. [later edit]: I get it now, it only works if the file you are working on is *.mel, so if you open a new file, you have to save it as mel if you want to see the pretty colors

    thanks, it's really great to have syntax highligthing for mel! for me jEdit was an ideal choice since it runs on any platforms Maya does :-)

    It's so useful finding a syntax file online from someone who cares enough to author them. Be warned that jedit doesn't automatically pick up the mel.xml file. You have to add a few lines to the catalog file in the modes folder install directory-> jedit/modes <MODE NAME="mel" FILE="mel.xml" FILE_NAME_GLOB="*.mel" /> Then restart jedit.
