Handling Maven, preparing new release

November 12, 2007

In the meantime i had the chance to take a closer look into `Maven. To build BeaGTex Version 1.3 with Maven, there are still some little things to do. Unfortunately there won’t be enough time to get into all those JUnit-Tests, before the new release. So I had to find a way to get Maven building my project without the testing-phase. Otherwise there would appear many test-errors, which logically avoid a proper build. Well I found the Maven-plugin for this and arranged it the way I need it. Now I can switch on the tests for normal working and developing, and switch it of for building the new version. If everything fits, version 1.3 will be released this week.

I also tested the new funktion (of course the old too!) as good as possible. Everything seems to work properly. In the new version it will be possible to fit in marginal notes an cross-references via the (context-) menu. Maybe there is anybody out there just waiting for this? Well I know that new funktions are just peanuts, but hey, it’s one further step to the great goal of a complete and user-friendly LaTex-editor.

There’s still a long way to go.
Let’s see how far I come 🙂

Today I imported some JUnit-Tests, specially created for the project. Thanks to Evan for his work. With this tests I try to assure that the current functionality (Version 1.2) won’t get worse or even lost because of any of my „improvements“.

However Evans tests show also, that there is a lot of more work to do to get the code better. Most of all it seems I have to get more the way to MVC, which should make coding cleaner and testing easier.

Future plans are to release versions 1.3 and 1.4 as planned with some more LaTex-functions and extended GUI using tabs. After that there should (and hopefully will) be a longer phase of code-refactoring for the next big realease 2.0.

Let’s see how far I come 🙂
