LilyTool for jEdit 0.2 beta available

Dear LilyPond users,

the 0.2 beta version of LilyPond plugin for jEdit is available now from

It has better integration with jEdit and cool new features.

News since 0.1:

- jDvi integrated into lily4jedit, so point-and-click is available, thanks to Johannes Schindler (Dscho) for his great work
- Automatic code completion for \override and \set - no longer needed to browse the documentation endlessly - if you hover on the name of a property with the mouse, you get the description in a tooltip box, the default value is expanded or a template is provided to fill in value. For example: if you type \override you can choose a context from a drop-down list, then choose the grob, then choose the property. All of these without errors, without opening the doc.
- New, lyrics-compliant document wizard implemented with Velocity templates and BeanShell
- Integrated midi playing (thx Dscho)
- Integrated cygwin shell (thx Dscho) - Now write cygwin commands directly in jEdit Console.
- Automatic hyphenation of lyrics using LaTeX's hyphenation engine. (see Plugins->LilyTool->do-lyrics).
- Easier future integration of macros and templates.

- LilyJHelp _must_ be downloaded separately
- jEdit 4.1 is required
- Templates, SideKick, Console, ErrorList plugins are required

It's still beta, and the doc has not been updated yet. Your suggestions are welcome, put them on project page.
