I'm pleased to announce ErlyBird 0.15.1, an Erlang IDE based on
NetBeans. This is a
performance improvement release. This release will only provide
all-in-one IDE package, which is in size of 18.3M.


    * Performance improvement.
    * Integrated with NetBeans' Common Scripting Framework. Thanks Tor.
    * Fix a bug related to occurrences mark on built-in functions.
    * Fix bug of wrong formatting multiple-lines string.
    * Supports "-module(x.y.z)" syntax.
    * Various bugs fixes.

Java JRE 5.0+ is required.

To download, please go to:

To install:

   1. Unzip erlybird-bin-0.15.1-ide.zip to somewhere.
   2. Make sure 'erl.exe' or 'erl' is under your environment path
   3. For Windows user, execute 'bin/erlybird.exe'. For *nix user,
   4. Check/set your OTP path. From [Tools]->[Options], click on
'Erlang', then 'Erlang Installation' tab, fill in the full path of
your 'erl.exe' or 'erl' file. For instance: "C:/erl/bin/erl.exe"
   5. The default -Xmx option for jvm is set to 256M, ErlyBird now
works good with less memory, such as -Xmx128M. If you want to
increase/decrease it, please open the config file that is located at
etc/erlybird.conf, set -J-Xmx of 'default_options'.

When run ErlyBird first time, the OTP libs will be indexed. The
indexing time varies from 10 to 30 minutes deponding on your computer.

Notice: If you have previous version of ErlyBird 0.12.0+ installed,
you can keep your old cache files, otherwise, please delete the old
cache files which are located at:

    * *nix: "${HOME}/.erlybird/dev"
    * mac os x: "${HOME}/Library/Application Support/erlybird/dev"
    * windows: "C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\.erlybird\dev"
or some where

The status of ErlyBird is still Alpha, feedbacks and bug reports are welcome.
