New and Noteworthy in 0.6.4

Previous versions

New Look

Single View

The TagSEA UI has been re-built to give you the most common features in a simplified view. TagSEA now consists of only one view, with all of the information that you should need. CloudSee has been removed, and a cloud view has been added to the main TagSEA view so that you can navigate using it in much the same way you would use the tree viewer. See the Getting Started page for more information.

More Extensibility

Parsed Waypoints

The code used to create Java and C/C++ waypoints has been painstakingly reorganized and refactored to make it easier to add new kinds of source code waypoints. The new code centralises all of the logic for parsing, listening to documents, reporting problems, and updating waypoints so you, as a contributer don't have to worry about it. All such waypoints are now gathered together under the common name "Parsed Waypoints". This is how you will find them in the TagSEA view's filters.

To learn about extending TagSEA, pleases see the Extending TagSEA page.

More Options

The different kinds of Parsed Waypoints can be selected for parsing in the Eclipse Preference pages under the TagSEA > Parsed Waypoints preference page.

Simple Java Tagging

A new waypoint type: Simple Java Tagging has been added. It allows you to quickly turn words in your comments into tags simply by placing a back-tick (`) character in front of them. For example:

//this code is a `hack

Will create a waypoint with the message "this code is a hack", and the tag "hack". Simple Java Tagging waypoints and standard Java waypoints can not be mixed in the same comment.
