----v.0.9.5 alpha 2 (2011-11-25)----
This Text Trix alpha release brings performance improvements to the new syntax highlighter. The new highlighter (modified from the open-source jsyntaxpane library) adds support for many new languages, including Python, SQL, bash, Groovy, JSON, and Scala, in addition to Java, HTML, and C++ support. Built into the highlighter are also a line number ruler, width marker, and parenthesis/bracket highlighters.
The tool for jumping between different positions within a file (Line Dance) now updates recorded line numbers during editing so that no how much you add or remove from the text, you can still navigate to the places you recorded.
Files previously defaulted to Unix (LF) end-of-line (EOL) styles, even if they were previously in Windows (CRLF) format. Now Text Trix preserves the file's original EOL style.
What's new in alpha 2 (since alpha 1):
-Significantly improved performance in loading large files
-Line Dance (for jumping between different positions in the file) now updates during editing
-Preserves end-of-line (EOL) styles
-This new package requires Java 6 or higher to run. If you require Java 1.4 or Java 5, you can use a previous version of Text Trix (through v.0.9.4).
-Word-wrap indent is not currently working for syntax highlighted files. Text will wrap to the next line, but unlike in previous versions, the text will wrap to the beginning of the line rather than from the point of the previous line's indentation.
-The syntax highlighter is a customized version of the open-source jsyntaxpane v.0.9.6pre, modified to incorporate into the a JTextPane rather than JEditorPane and to use WrappedPlainView rather than PlainView for HTML and XML documents.
