JDarkRoom 14

The beginning of this month saw the release of version 14 of JDarkRoom, the full-screen text editor that has developed a loyal following since its first release over two years ago.

The new version is the first for almost a year and brings some much-needed bug fixes, new features and a complete rewrite of the settings screen. The main new feature is the ability to export your file via a converter – for example the supplied ‘Markdown‘ converter will generate a snippet of HTML suitable for posting into a web page, using the Markdown syntax rules for formatting. Suggestions for other converters are welcome.

Future development plans include a plugin system, so that other friendly Java developers can get in on the act to add features they’d like to see in JDarkRoom.

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who requested features, submitted bug reports and gave feedback on JDarkRoom – your input is always very much appreciated.
