Swing Explorer Version 1.4 released

Free Resource

Swing Explorer is a tool for Swing developers intended for visual exploring of a Swing-based application internals. It may save you quite a lot of time when you need to fix some problems in existing Swing Application or learn how the applications are built.

More details can be found on the Swing Explorer project page. As always I'd like to ask everybody to report any encountered issues in this version.

List of features and fixes in version 1.4

1. User settings (sizes, positions) are now saved between executions

2. Added hyperlinks to stack trace elements in the EDT monitor

3. Component tree displays getName() property if available

4. Logging information is added

5. Added continuous refreshing by timer in case component tree is empty (needed when application is executed slowly)

6. Fixed problem with NetBeans 6.5 (New dependency was declared). Before it was impossible to use Swing Explorer plug-in with NB 6.5

7. Added Help-Tips menu

8. Added hyperlinks to about box

9. Corrected L&F of tabbed pane to look better on Mac OS (Swing Explorer still has some problems running on Mac OS)
