RText Version Now Available

RText is a customizable programmer's text editor written in Java. Some of its features include: syntax highlighting, editing multiple documents at once, printing and print preview, find/replace/find in files dialogs, undo/redo, and online help.

Here's what's new in
1. Added Groovy language support (Feature Request 1803457).
2. Added Tcl language support (syntax highlighting and source browser) (Feature Request 1796206).
3. The Source Browser now analyzes Lua files.
4. Fixed bug 1807734: Character insertions were not included in macros.
5. Added accelerators to file chooser's popup menu actions: "F2" is now a shortcut for "Rename", and "F5" is a shortcut for "Refresh".

15. Improved SQL syntax highlighting - more keywords recognized, standard SQL99 functions are colored, and multiline comments are now colored.
