My work on an Eclipse-style Lua IDE has reached a major new milestone and I
felt it was ready for another [ann].

I am finally releasing the first 1.0 alpha versions, which I describe as
"feature complete"

The project homepage is, there are
a *A LOT* of screenshots, screencasts, and the source code.

If you don't feel like trying it out, I encourage you to watch the
screencasts to get a feel for what it is like and perhaps even provide
feedback on what you see.

If you would like to try it you can use the free version of IntelliJ

You can enable the plugin by going to the File/Settings menu, then on
the Plugins tab locate and install the Lua plugin from the list of
available plugins.

(To use the debugger, remember you will need to configure a real Lua
environment, not Kahlua)
