Hi all,

I am happy to announce the availability of the 0.9 version of our Eclipse-based IDE, Koneki LDT [1]!
Lots of new features made it to this version, including:
  • The out-of-the-box experience has been much improved, the IDE now ships with an embedded Lua interpreter which means that even if you don't have a Lua interpreter on your machine, you'll be able to execute and debug your scripts very easily. The IDE also ships with the so-called Execution Environment for Lua 5.1 so you will have code assistance without the need to configure anything!
  • Remote development: if you do embedded, or more generally if your Lua VM is running on a remote machine, you likely want to have an easy way to deploy and debug your scripts. LDT 0.9 has full support for remote development: you can configure a remote connection to a distant machine, configure its local VM, and run/debug your scripts on this VM in just on click.
  • LuaDocumentor: you probably remember that LDT relies on the code documentation [2] to provide code completion, code navigation, outline… In 0.9 we have added syntax coloring and code completion for writing code documentation faster.
Please visit for getting more information about the project, and get the instructions for downloading and installing the IDE. I remind you that LDT is available both as a standalone executable, and as a feature you can install inside Eclipse if you are already using it for other developments.
The whole changelog for the 0.9 version is available here [3]

The team will be happy to answer your questions and listen to feature requests if you stop by our forum [4]!
