For some reason some code is left out in the file jedit5.0.0install.jar. Up to version 4.51 (on my system) installed just fine with Java 1.6. The jedit5.0.0install.jar gives only errors and installation is aborted by Java. Unfortunately there is no bug file of some sort. The "crash" is going very fast. When I rename 4.51 and 5.00 file to zip and I look into the files then I can find some OS/2 specific files in version 4.51 installer file, but non in the version 5.0 installer file. Why are these files left out?

    I did read in the changes that OS/2 code is left out because someone says it wouldn't work. I have uploaded a screen print of my system with eCS 1.2NL (Dutch) with Jedit 4.51 running at 11.25.2012. eCS is short for eComStation and a distribution of OS/2 4.5something and is actively maintained. We will see eCS version 2.2 end of this year. How so can not run in OS/2? So would you be so kind to insert the left out code, thank you.

    Also rev# 20432 needs to be rolled back.

    Committed rev# 22520 to jEdit. Please check tomorrow's daily build of 5.1pre1 and see if it installs on OS/2 since I have no way of testing it. If it works, we will merge it into the 5.0.x branch and that will be in a bugfix release.
