+ + Latest stable release of semantic: Version 1.4
+ + Latest stable release of eieio: Version 0.17
+ ECB checks at start-time if the correct versions are available and if not
+ ECB offers you to download and install them from within Emacs. After this
+ you have only to restart Emacs and you are fine. (Klaus)
+- Byte compiling ECB either interactive with `ecb-byte-compile' or with the
+ supplied Makefile now checks also the versions of semantic and eieio.
+- ECB now displays the section "First steps" of the online-manual after
+ activating first time. (Klaus)
+- Now the adviced versions of `delete-window' and `delete-other-windows' can
+ also handle the optional WINDOW argument of the original versions correctly
+ so the adviced versions now also work correct if called from program (Klaus).
+- New adviced window command: `delete-windows-on' now works correct with ECB.
+ See `ecb-advice-window-functions'. (Klaus)
+- In the ECB-directories buffer now F4 adds a new source-path instead of F1.
+ That is because F1 is such an important key in many OS and tools (e.g. opens
+ help in all windows-programs), so ECB should not hardly "rebind" it. (Klaus)
+- Enhancing the option 'ecb-window-sync': Now the synchronisation can take
+ place for all buffers which have a relation to files AND directories, i.e.
+ now also for dired-buffers. But per default this is switched off, see the
+- Now the ECB online help is available in the standard Info-format and also in
+ HTML-format. With the new option 'ecb-show-help-format' you can choose which
+ format is used by the function 'ecb-show-help'. (Klaus)
+- New feature and command: ecb-download-ecb. With this function you can
+ download and install any arbitrary ECB-version from the ECB-website from
+ within Emacs. This is especially usefull for upgrading to the latest
+- New debug mode for ECB which prints some debug informations in the message
+ buffer for certain critical operations with semantic-overlays/extends.
+ New option 'ecb-debug-mode' (also available in the Help-menu of ECB).
+- Some default keybindings have changed; see `ecb-key-map'. (Klaus)
+- New feature: Possibility to define a sequence of layouts with new option
+ `ecb-toggle-layout-sequence' and toggle very fast between them via
+ `ecb-toggle-layout'. Read the online-help section "Simulation a speedbar
+ without an extra frame"! (Klaus).
+- Fixed: Now no empty tooltips are displayed if mouse moves over nodes in the
+ tree-buffers of ECB which can be displayed completely in the tree-window.
+- Two new hooks: ecb-hide-ecb-windows-hook and ecb-show-ecb-windows-hook. Read
+ the documentation. (Klaus)
+ Suggested by Daniel Hegyi <firstname.lastname@example.org>
+- Fixed a bug: Sometimes there occurs a a "wrong-type-argument"-error (or
+ "destroyed extent"-error with XEmacs) under some circumstances. Now ECB
+ auto-reparses the buffer and after that ECB is in correct state again.
+- Two new options: ecb-major-modes-activate and ecb-major-modes-deactivate.
+ Allow (de)activation of ECB on major-mode base. Instead of deactivation also
+ just hiding the ECB-windows is possible. Read the docstrings. (Klaus)
+ Suggested by Daniel Hegyi <email@example.com>
+- Redefining of the option 'ecb-compile-window-temporally-enlarge': Now you
+ can specify that the compile-window is auto. enlarged after selecting it and
+ auto. shrinked after leaving it. Read the docstring! (Klaus)
+ Suggested by Daniel Hegyi <firstname.lastname@example.org>
+- Much better and more powerful auto. upgrading-mechanism of incompatible or
+ renamed ECB-options to latest ECB-version. See the option
+ ecb-auto-compatibility-check! (Klaus)
+- Fixed formatting of "Parent" nodes in token buffer. (Jesper)
+- New option ecb-tree-RET-selects-edit-window: Possibility not to select the
+ edit-window of hitting RET in a tree-buffer; see the doc-string. There is
+ also a new function ecb-toggle-RET-selects-edit-window which is bound to
+ [C-t] in each tree-buffer. (Kevin A. Burton, Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug in ecb-eshell. If we are running with current buffer sync, and
+ there is garbage on the current line, when we change buffers this garbage will
+ be executed which could result in a 'command not found' or even worse, a
+ damaging command executed. We now cleanse the command line prior to directory
+ changed. (Kevin A. Burton)
+- Fixed a bug in ecb-speedbar. The speedbar was doing its own updating outside
+ of the ECB. This means that if you were to change buffers in a frame outside
+ of the ECB frame, the ECB's Speedbar would be updated to reflect a buffer not
+ within the ECB. We now disable Speedbar's automatic update and have ECB
+ handle this. (Kevin A. Burton)
+- Better grouping of external methods, i.e. methods which are implemented
+ outside the class-definition, like in C++, CLOS and EIEIO. Now this is done
+ completely by semantic. (Klaus)
+- For application programmers using the tree-buffer library:
+ + The function tree-buffer-create has a new argument NODE-DATA-EQUAL-FN. See
+ the doc-string for a description (Klaus).
+ + For each tree-buffer a special user-data-storage (for any arbitrary data)
+ is ceated which can be accessed via `tree-buffer-set-data-store' and
+ `tree-buffer-get-data-store'. See the docstring of `tree-buffer-create'.
+- New option ecb-bucket-token-display. See doc-string for details. (Klaus)
+- Reorganisation of the faces used by ECB. The group 'ecb-face-options'
+ contains now all options which type is 'face (i.e. the defcustom's) and the
+ group 'ecb-faces' contains all face-definition (the defface's). In addition
+ it is now possible to change easily and fast the general face for ALL
+ ECB-tree-buffers (same for the highlighting face). See the docstring of the
+ new faces 'ecb-default-general-face' and 'ecb-default-highlight-face' for
+ further details. (Klaus).
+- Smarter incr. search in a tree-buffer with the [end]-key: If there are at
+ least two nodes with the same greatest common-prefix than every hit of
+ [end] jumps to the next node with this common prefix. (Klaus)
+- New feature ecb-auto-compatibility-check: ECB checks on startup if the
+ current value of an ECB-option OPT is not compatible with the type of OPT in
+ current ECB-release. This is done during activation. If there are
+ incompatible options ECB resets them to the default value of current ECB
+ release and displays after activation in a temporary window which options
+ have been reset, inkl. their old-value (before the reset) and new-value
+ (after the reset). (Klaus)
+- New feature ecb-tree-navigation-by-arrow: Smarter navigation in the
+ tree-windows with left- and right-arrow key (Klaus).
+ Thanks for the suggestion and a first implementation to Geert Ribbers
+- New feature 'ecb-type-token-display'. See the doc-string of this new option
+ for a description. (Klaus)
+- Now the option 'ecb-post-process-semantic-tokenlist' has per default an
+ entry for emacs-lisp-mode, so for eieio-code the methods (defmethod) of a
+ class are grouped with respect to the class they belong. The new default
+ value of this option does this for c++- and eieio-code. (Klaus)
+- Now in the ECB-tree-buffers RETURN works like the primary button (already in
+ previous versions) and C-RETURN works like the secondary button (new in
+ version 1.70). For an explanation of primary and secondary see the option
+ ecb-primary-secondary-mouse-buttons. (Klaus)
+- New feature: Now the token-display function can be defined separated for
+ each major-mode. Furthermore the token-display for C++ has enhanced,
+ especially for template-classes (but template displaying is first available
+ with semantic > version 14beta13!).
+ For this the option ecb-token-display-function has been completely rewritten
+ and is now incompatible with the old values before ECB 1.61. (Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug with mouse-avoidance-mode (only relevant for GNU Emacs 20.X)
+- New feature, ecb-select-edit-window-on-redraw. Mostly used if you are running
+ with ecb-redraw-layout-quickly and want to make sure you are always in the
+- New feature, ecb-auto-activate. If non-nil we can start the ECB after Emacs
+ is started. See `ecb-auto-activate' for more information. (Kevin)
+- New package, ecb-cycle.el. Supports cycling through all known compilation
+ + ecb-cycle-switch-to-compilation-buffer - switch to available compilation
+ + ecb-cycle-through-compilation-buffers - cycle through all compilation
+- Much better performance of the directory and file-browser in ECB, especially
+ for directories with a lot of entries (means ~ >1000, dependend on your
+ machine and the net-connection in case of network-drives). See also the new
+ feature: ecb-cache-directory-contents. (Klaus)
+- ecb-eshell now supports customization. (Kevin)
+- New feature: ecb-layout-always-operate-in-edit-window. Look at the
+ documentation. (Kevin & Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug in `ecb-toggle-ecb-windows'. For starters we weren't setting
+ `ecb-window-hidden' when we redraw the layout. This means that the ecb
+ windows could be hidden but never shown.
+ + ecb-windows-hidden now has documentation
+ + we display status messages when we hide windows. (Kevin)
+- Fixed bug in `ecb-redraw-layout-quickly'. If for come reason any of the ECB
+ windows are not alive, we do not return with a hard error. Instead, we use
+ the scratch buffer. (Kevin)
+- New function ecb-toggle-enlarged-compilation-window allows users to expand and
+ then contract the compilation window with a new key binding C-c . / (Kevin)
+- new option ecb-add-path-for-not-matching-files. Look at the documentation
+- ecb-highlight-token-header-after-jump is now a boolean; which face is used
+ for highlighting is defined in ecb-token-header-face. (Klaus)
+- New option 'ecb-post-process-semantic-tokenlist': Special postprocessing of
+ the semantic tokenlist for certain major-modes. This is usefull for
+ c++-mode. Now with the default value of this option all methods in a
+ c++-implementation-file (no class/method-declaration but only method
+ implementations) are grouped with respect to the class they belong. (Klaus)
+- Now also with C++ Sources the method- and variable-protection is displayed
+ correct in the ECB-method buffer (Klaus).
+- Fixed a bug which prevented ECB using the root path "/" on unix-like systems
+ as a source-path. (Klaus)
+- If a file via the standard-mechanisms of Emacs (e.g. find-file) is openend,
+ then the auto. window synch (see `ecb-window-sync') has worked only correct
+ if the new file is located in any of the paths in `ecb-source-path'. Now ECB
+ adds the path of the new file at least temporally via `ecb-add-source-path'
+ to the list of paths in `ecb-source-path', so the window-synch works always
+ correct. ECB asks the user if the new path should saved also for future
+- Added ecb-redraw-layout-hooks so that code can be executed after we redraw the
+- New hook ecb-current-buffer-sync-hook allows developers to add code to be
+ evaluated after the ECB is synchronized with the current buffer.
+- Now all faces used by ECB for highlighting and displaying it´s own stuff are
+ customizable. See new group 'ecb-faces' (Klaus).
+- ECB is now fully prepared for Emacs 21. The new feature
+ `ecb-show-node-info-in-minibuffer' is implemented with the new 'help-echo
+ property of Emacs 21, therefore the ugly `track-mouse' mechanism is not
+ needed anymore with Emacs 21. (Klaus).
+- The options `ecb-show-node-name-in-minibuffer',
+ `ecb-show-complete-file-name-in-minibuffer' and
+ `ecb-show-file-info-in-minibuffer' are gone and have been replaced by one
+ single new option `ecb-show-node-info-in-minibuffer' where you can define
+ separately for every tree-buffer when and which node info should be
+ displayed in the minibuffer (Klaus).
+- ecb-auto-expand-directory-tree now offers two options:
+ - best: Expand always the best matching source-path for a file
+ - first: Expand always the first matching source-path for a file (Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug in auto. expanding directories if a source-path has an alias.
+- If mouse is moved over an alias in the directories buffer then the real path
+ is shown in the echo-area; see also 'ecb-show-node-info-in-minibuffer'
+- If mouse is moved over an history-entry then the full path is shown in the
+ echo-area so you can distinct better between two entries with the same name
+ but with differnt pathes; see also 'ecb-show-node-info-in-minibuffer'
+- New option for the history: ecb-kill-buffer-clears-history defines if
+ `kill-buffer' should also remove the corresponding history entry. There are
+ several options (Klaus).
+- Added EIEIO requirement to ECB.
+- Now the names of all ECB buffers begin with a SPC per default. (Klaus)
+- ECB now can handle not only full but also partial buffer reparsing if done
+ by semantic and other tools (e.g. JDE >= 2.2.9). The method buffer will
+ always be uptodate if for a major-mode auto. reparsing after buffer changes
+ is enabled (the auto. buffer reparsing itself is not an ECB feature but must
+ be supplied by the major-mode, e.g. JDE). (Klaus)
+- Incremental node-search in the ECB-buffers now uses the value of
+ `case-fold-search'. (Klaus)
+- Complete new customization of the ECB-keybindings. The option
+ `ecb-prefix-key' has been removed. There is one new option `ecb-key-map'
+ where you can customize all keysettings of ECB (including a common
+- ecb-add-source-path and ecb-delete-source-path now ask if saving should be
+ done for future sessions (Klaus).
+- Added new navigator functionality. Makes it easy to go to the back and forward
+ in navigated tokens and buffers. See ecb-nav-goto-next and
+ ecb-nav-goto-previous. (Jesper)
+- Added an option to narrow the buffer to the token that is jumped to. See
+ ecb-token-jump-narrow. (Jesper)
+- Fixed a small bug that placed the window start at the beginning of the token
+ instead of the beginning of the token line. (Jesper)
+- Fixed a minor bug that occured when de-activating ECB under XEmacs. (Jesper)
+- ecb-layout-window-sizes variable is now an association list, which makes it
+ easier to add and remove layouts. (Jesper)
+- Added a new layout (nr. 12). Thanks to Nick Cross
+ <email@example.com> for this layout.
+- Each source path can now have an alias that is displayed instead of the path
+ name in the directories buffer. (Jesper)
+- The history items can now use the buffer name instead of the file
+ name. Customizable with ecb-history-item-name. (Jesper)
+- When jumping to a token the window can be scrolled so that the token starts
+ at the top or center of the window. This behaviour is customizable with
+ the variable ecb-scroll-window-after-jump. (Jesper)
+- Fixed a bug when retrieving parent names for a token. (Jesper)
++ Now the option 'ecb-prefix-key' is customizable so you can define another
+ prefix if there are conflicts with other minor-modes or packages (Klaus).
+- Fixed bug when clicking on token in the methods buffer in XEmacs.
+- Tree-incremental-search in the ecb-windows now ignores all non interesting
+ + expand/collapse-buttons: [+] resp. [-]
+ + protection-signs (+, -, #) in the method-window if uml-notation is used
+ + variables types or returntypes in front of variable- or method-names.
+ + const specifier for variables
+ This makes incremental-searching in a tree-buffer much faster and easier.
+- ECB now uses Semantic DB to find parents of types. (Jesper)
+- Long source paths in the directories buffer are now truncated at the
+ beginning. Customizable with variable ecb-truncate-long-names. (Jesper)
+- Tokens can now be sorted by access. (Jesper)
+- Added a function to semantic-clean-token-hooks that just updates the token
+ changed instead of re-building the entire token tree. (Jesper)
+- Implemented a token tree cache that stores recently opened buffers' token
+ trees. This makes the buffer switching much faster and also saves expanded
+ nodes and window positions. The cache is unlimited at the moment. (Jesper)
+- Added a speedbar-like layout nr. 11. This is very useful (like also layout
+ nr. 10) either for users with small screens or users which normally do not
+ need/want the ECB-windows but sometimes browsing/selecting
+ methods/variables. (Klaus)
+- Better extraction of tokens from current buffer. ECB now displays any token
+ type in any order. (Jesper)
+- ECB now uses Semantic to display tokens in the methods buffer. (Jesper)
+- Much saver ecb-redraw-layout: Now the layout can be restored ALWAYS
+ regardless what messy thing has been done before. (Klaus)
+- New advice for 'other-window-for-scrolling', so all scroll-functions for the
+ "other" window can also scroll the first edit-window if point stays in the
+- ecb-toggle-ecb-windows now preserves the split, the split-amount, the buffer
+ contents, the window starts and current point. (Klaus)
+- Some important changes in the ECB-layout concerning displaying compilation-
+ and temp-buffers. (Klaus):
+ + 'ecb-select-compile-window' has been gone.
+ + 'ecb-use-dedicated-windows' is not longer a user-customizable option but
+ it is always set to t, because this is essential for correct working of
+ + 'ecb-compile-window-temporally-enlarge' is now a boolean option.
+ + Now ECB does all necessary that your edit-window of ECB seems to be a
+ normal Emacs frame, especially concerning displaying temp-buffers (like
+ help- and completion-buffers) and compilation-buffers.
+ + The variables 'compilation-window-height' and 'temp-buffer-shrink-to-fit'
+ (XEmacs) and 'temp-buffer-resize-mode' (GNU Emacs) are now fully supported
+ by ECB if no durable compilation-window is shown.
+- New function to toggle visibility of the ECB windows. Now it´s possible to
+ hide all ECB windows without deactivating ECB (see 'ecb-toggle-ecb-windows')
+- ECB is now a global minor mode with it´s own menu "ECB" and it´s own keymap
+ with prefix "C-c .". New function to (de)activate/toggle ECB with
+ 'ecb-minor-mode'. (Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug in highlighting current token in the method-buffer when
+ font-lock-mode is nil for the source-buffer. (Klaus)
+- New option for highlighting the method-header in the edit-window after
+ clicking onto the method in the method-window (like Speedbar does). (Klaus)
+- Function for automatically submitting a problem report to the ECB mailing
+ list: ecb-submit-problem-report. (Klaus)
+- Now not only for method-highlighting an idle delay can be set but also for
+ synchronizing the ECB windows with current edit window (see option
+ ecb-window-sync and ecb-window-sync-delay; default is 0.25 sec delay)
+- Smarter highlighting of current method (Klaus).
+- All tree-buffers now have as default-directory the current selected
+ directory in the directory buffer. So you can also open files with find-file
+ etc. from within the tree-buffers. (Klaus).
+- Nil parent bug fixed. (Jesper)
+- New advices for find-file and switch-to-buffer (Klaus).
+- Now possible to set an idle delay before the current method is highlighted;
+ useful for slow machines but prevents also "jumping backward/forward" during
+ scrolling within java-classes if point goes out of method-definition into
+ class-definition. Default is an idle time of 0.25 seconds. (Klaus).
+- Parents (extends and implements) of the classes in the current buffer is now
+ shown in the methods buffer. (Jesper). Possibility to define a regexp which
+ parents should not be shown. (Klaus).
+- Now displaying the complete node name in minibuffer with the track-mouse
+ mechanism works also with mouse-avoidance-mode on; the mouse-avoidance will
+ be deactivated as long ECB is activated and the node-name display-mechanism
+ is on. This refers only to GNU Emacs! (Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug in 'ecb-current-buffer-sync' and 'ecb-redraw-layout' (Klaus)
+- Fixed a bug in loading semantic 1.3.3 or semantic 1.4 (Klaus)
+- If not all ECB-tree-windows of current layout are visible at redraw-time
+ ('ecb-redraw-layout') then the redraw synchronizes the contents of the
+ tree-windows with the source displayed in current edit-window (Klaus).
+- Added a section "Tips and Tricks" to the ECB online-help. (Klaus)
+- Added a new layout Nr. 10 for very small screen resolutions where all
+ squarecentimeters are needed for the editing itself. This layout only
+ displays a method-window and a edit-window. (Klaus).
+- The messages displayed after moving the mouse over a node in a tree-buffer
+ do not longer wasting the log, means they will not be logged (Klaus).
+- ECB now also works with semantic >= 1.4 (Klaus).
+- Now the ecb-compile-window-height is also preserved after displaying
+ temp-buffers (e.g. help-buffers after C-h f) - if you want this. See the
+ documentation of the option 'ecb-compile-window-temporally-enlarge'. (Klaus)
+- Added menu items for modification of the source paths in the directories
+- Added buttons to directories buffer. (Jesper)
+- Mouse over files, methods etc. now work even if follow-mouse isn't
+ activated (Jesper). ECB adds a more intelligent mouse tracking mechanism, so
+ not only the mouse-over-node stuff of ECB works now very well and savely but
+ also follow-mouse itself works better and saver as without activated ECB.
+- Popup menus now work in XEmacs. (Jesper)
+- You can now specify paths with env-vars like $HOME in the option
+ `ecb-source-path'. (Klaus)
+- The user must now confirm if he tries to delete the ECB frame. If he wants
+ to proceed then ECB will be first deactivated before deleting the frame.
+ This works for all ways to delete a frame (shortcut, window-manager-button,
+- ECB now optionally create its own frame when activated. See the new option
+ 'ecb-new-ecb-frame'. (Klaus)
+- Intelligent recentering of tree-buffers now completely implemented without
+ the function 'recenter'. This means no flickering and flashing the whole
+ frame anymore after each 'recenter'. Now the ECB display is stable like a
+- Mouse over directories now shows directory path. (Jesper)
+- Methods and variables with point are now highlighted. (Jesper)
+- ECB windows are now updated when saving new files and deleting files. (Jesper)
+- incremental-search in every tree-buffer for easier and faster selecting
+ nodes with the keyboard (see new option `ecb-tree-incremental-search' and
+ new function 'tree-buffer-incremental-node-search') for more details.
+- ecb-redraw-layout now restores both edit window buffers and the edit window
+- Spelling corrections. Thanks to Colin Marquardt
+ <firstname.lastname@example.org> for spotting them.
+- Mode line prefixes can now be set individually for each ECB-buffer. There is
+ a default-prefix for each buffer but the user can also define a custom
+ prefix or no prefix at all. (Jesper/Klaus)
+- Fixed small bug in directory tree that caused directories to be sorted by
+Version 1.20 (2001-04-28):
+- Now the ECB-buffers are intelligent in displaying nodes (Klaus):
+ + Expandable nodes: (e.g. a directory with it´s subdirectories). An
+ ECB-tree-window now tries always to make visisble as much as possible of
+ the subnodes of a node if a node is expanded (e.g. by clicking onto it´s
+ + Other nodes: A ECB-tree-window is always best filled, means no empty lines
+ if there are enough lines to fill the whole window.
+- The source file is only parsed if the ECB methods window is visible
+- The methods buffer now show fields of EIEIO classes. Only works with
+ semantic 1.4. Thanks to Eric M. Ludlam <email@example.com> for
+- Now all adviced functions behave only special in the ECB-frame. In each other
+ frame they behave exactly like the not adviced functions. (Klaus)
+- Fix "invalid method-buffer"-bug (Klaus, with a lot of help by Eric Ludlam
+- Source files can now be sorted by name, extension or not sorted at all
+- Now you can precisely define by an exclude and include regexp which files
+ should be displayed by ECB. (Jesper).
+- Jumping to a method/variable from the ECB-method buffer now sets the mark so
+ the user can easily jump back (see `ecb-method-jump-sets-mark'). (Klaus)
+- Now you can define a primary and a secondary mouse-button for ECB. See the
+ new variable `ecb-primary-secondary-mouse-buttons'.
+ Note: The name of the option 'ecb-left-mouse-jump-destination' has been
+ changed to `ecb-primary-mouse-jump-destination'!
+- Now ECB is really ediff-friendly: During ediff is active the advices of ECB
+ are temporally deactivated! (Klaus)
+- Now all tree-buffers (ECB-buffers) are read-only (Klaus)!
+- Better implementation of advising the functions. Now all adviceable
+ functions are completely independent from each other (Klaus)!
+- Mon Apr 2 21:20:34 2001 (firstname.lastname@example.org): merge my modeline
+ additions... this removes the redundant modeline info and shows important
+- Added new option `ecb-advice-window-functions'. Enabling the intelligent
+ window functions via customize. No hook hacking necessary anymore!
+ Now the intelligent window functions are implemented by advicing (klaus).
+- Better online help display (Klaus).
+- Added new option 'ecb-primary-mouse-jump-destination' (thanks to David Hay
+ for suggestion <David.Hay@requisite.com>.
+- Adviced 'other-window' acts now exactly like the original but always related
+ to 'ecb-other-window-jump-behavior' (klaus)!
+- Fixed bug with 'ecb-compile-window-height'. Now ECB has always the correct
+ compile-window height after compilation-output (compile, grep etc.)
+- New option 'ecb-compile-window-temporally-enlarge'. Allowing
+ Emacs-compilation to enlarge the ECB-compile-window temporally.
+Version 1.10 (2001-03-25):
+- Automatic expansion of the directory tree.
+- Method parsing is now recursive, so that for example inner classes
+ in Java are shown in the methods buffer.
+- Variables are now shown in the methods buffer.
+- Selected files and directories now use the secondary-selection
+ face. Thanks to Kevin A. Burton <email@example.com> for this
+- Fixed some issues with XEmacs. Thanks to Colin Marquardt
+ <firstname.lastname@example.org> for this.
+- Fixed bug with truncating lines in tree-buffer.el.
+- The methods buffer can now be automatically updated when the source
+- Help text is available with "ecb-show-help".
+- Moving the mouse over a node shows the name in the
+ mini-buffer. Currently this only works when follow-mouse is
+Version 1.0 (2001-03-17):
+- Changed name from JCB to ECB and prefix from "jde-jcb-" to "ecb-".
+- Works with semantic 1.3.1 and higher.
+- Fixed a couple of bugs when creating and deleting files.
+- Grouped customization variables.
+Contributed by Klaus Berndl <email@example.com>:
+- A lot of intelligent ECB window-functions (e.g. ecb-delete-window) which
+ gives you the feeling as if the edit-window is the only window of the ECB
+- New layout functionality.
+- The history buffer can optionally be sorted and also cleared.
+- The package expanded symbol can optionally be placed before the package name.
+- Syntax highlighting of the methods buffer.
+- Show argument names and return type in the methods buffer.
+- History clear function: ecb-clear-history.
+- Added pop-up menu to the history buffer.
+- Fixed edit buffer sync bug.
+Version 0.04 (2000-11-07):
+- Keyboard navigation in JCB buffers. Use Return to select and Tab to expand.
+- Tree view of packages.
+- Class files can be viewed in the packages buffer.
+- Better handling of mouse events.
+- Automatic update of the packages buffer.
+- Added pop-up menus to the packages and classes buffers. They are activated
+ with mouse button 3 (right button).
+- Added method sorting. Thanks to Brian Anderson <firstname.lastname@example.org>
+Version 0.03 (2000-07-28):
+- Fixed naming of variables.
+- Fixed license and copyright comments.
+- Fixed class file regular expression bug.
+ Thanks to Jim Loverde <email@example.com> for finding it.
+- Added three new layouts.
+- The JCB buffers can now be (almost) synchronized with the edit window.
+- When clicking on a class or method using mouse button 2, it will be loaded
+ into another window. A new customization variable was added for this.
+- Minor changes. Thanks to Jim for his suggestions.
+- Removed the "jde-jcb-window-skips-from-methods-buffer" and
+ "jde-jcb-window-skips-from-history-buffer" customization variables.
+Version 0.02 (2000-07-15):
+- Changed prefix from "jcb-" to "jde-jcb-". This will cause JCB customization
+ variables to be saved in JDE project files.
+- Lists and parses non-Java file types. Currently the C and Lisp parsers from
+ semantic-ex.el are used.
+- History buffer implemented.
+- Layout function implement. Thanks to Jim Loverde <firstname.lastname@example.org> for
+- Packages matching a regular expression can be excluded from the packages
+ buffer. Thanks to Mark Gibson <email@example.com> for this feature.
+Version 0.01 (2000-07-08):
