ECB 1.95.1 is released!
 
 
 

What's new in the new release:
------------------------------
 
* Changes for ECB version 1.95.1
 
** Now the ecb-windows can be "maximized", means all other ecb-windows are
   deleted so only the edit-window(s), and this maximized ecb-window are
   visible (and maybe a compile-window if active). This can be done either via
   the popup-menus of the ecb-windows or via calling `delete-other-windows'
   (bound to [C-x 1]) in one of the ecb-windows or via the new commands
   `ecb-maximize-window-*' where * stands for {directories, sources, methods,
   history, speedbar}. There is also a command
   `ecb-cycle-maximized-ecb-buffers'.
 
   *Note*: If there are byte-compiled(!) user-defined layouts - either created
   interactively by `ecb-create-new-layout' or programmed with the macro
   `ecb-layout-define' - then the file where these user-defined layouts are
   saved (see option `ecb-create-layout-file') must be re-byte-compiled with
   latest ECB version >= 1.95.1! If the user-defined layouts are not
   byte-compiled then there is nothing to do.
 
** Some default keybindings have changed; see RELEASE_NOTES for details.
 
** All popup-menus of the ECB-tree-buffers can be openend via [Meta-m]
 
** Fixed bugs
 
*** Clicking onto the image-icons of an integrated speedbar has failed for
    XEmacs. This comes from a bug in speedbar which is now fixed locally in
    ECB by advicing `dframe-mouse-set-point' if speedbar is integrated in the
    ECB-frame.
 
 
 
How to get it:
--------------
 
Sorry, it's too big to post the sources here...
 
If you are using ECB >= 1.80 then you can just call "M-x ecb-download-ecb" if
you are online. ECB will then download autom. latest and newest ECB and
install it for you.
 
Or go to the homepage at http://ecb.sourceforge.net and download it from
there.
 
 
 
General description of ECB:
---------------------------
 
ECB stands for "Emacs Code Browser" and is a source code browser for (X)Emacs.
It is a global minor-mode which displays a couple of windows that can be used
to browse directories, files and file-contents like methods and variables. It
supports source-code parsing for semantic-supported languages like Java, C,
C++, Elisp and Scheme as well as for source-types supported "only" by imenu or
etags (e.g. perl, TeX, LaTeX etc.).
 
Here is an ascii-screenshot of what ECB offers you:
