(click here for detailed install instructions)
There is a new Liferay IDE 1.5 Release page where you can see some details and screenshots about the new release. Here are the most important new features available in this release:
- Liferay Hook Configuration Editor
- Support for importing Liferay binary plugins as new projects
- JSP Debugging for projects deployed to Remote Liferay Servers
- Support for Glassfish as a Remote Liferay Server (through server-manager-web Liferay plugin)
Here are a couple of screenshots of the new features in action:
I'll be checking the Liferay IDE forums if anyones has problems with upgrade or installation.
Lastly I wanted to mention again a Liferay IDE contributor to this release of Kamesh Sampath. He wrote the new Binary Import wizards with very little help from my part, just knocked out that feature all on his own. Also, he wrote the first version of the liferay-hook.xml before it went through additional revisions leading up to the 1.5 release. Thanks again Kamesh for all your hard work!
