SNAPSHOT artifacts are now available

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Happy New Year!

SNAPSHOT artifacts are now available for both RSyntaxTextArea and RText, thanks to Sonatype.  This will provide folks with an easy way to try out new versions of these libraries before they are “officially” available.

To use the SNAPSHOTs, you’ll first have to reference the Sonatype snapshot repository.  This can be done in a Gradle build script like so:

repositories {
   mavenCentral()
   maven { // Snapshot builds of RSTA artifacts
      url 'https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots'
   }
}

Then you can just declare your dependencies as usual.  It did seem like I had to be explicit about my desire for 2.6.0-SNAPSHOT, otherwise Gradle/Maven would still fetch the 2.5.6 release artifact:

dependencies {
   compile 'com.fifesoft.rtext:fife.common:2.6.0-SNAPSHOT', 'com.fifesoft:rsyntaxtextarea:2.6.0-SNAPSHOT'
}

Enjoy!
