Title: Is Slickedit 2014 on the near horizon?
Post by: macjohnmcc on June 17, 2014, 12:45:41 am
I saw posts indicating that it would be in beta in the spring and has only 5 days remaining.

Looking forward to the update.

Thanks.

We have a little more work to do on the new UI enhancements (multi-instance tool windows, floating document group layout preferences, named layouts) before we'll be ready to release the beta. We're hoping that we'll be able to get the first beta out by the end of the month, or the first week in July. This is later than we'd originally planned, but we felt that the new layout management features would cause too much "configuration migration frustration" if we released the first beta without those features.

@luoshuhui:  For SlickEdit 2014, we have added project and debugger support for Go.  We previously had autocomplete - was there a particular problem you were having with it?

Still on track for this week??  ;D

Being on the developing end of a lot or projects I pretty much hate it when customers pester about when something is being released. That said, SE is my favorite and the most helpful program in my software toolbox and I can't help myself.

Yikes! My support expires in two weeks and there hasn't been a new version of SlickEdit during the past year of support.
Title: Re: Is Slickedit 2014 on the near horizon?
Post by: macjohnmcc on July 12, 2014, 04:10:23 pm
I will expect to get for my money what I expect to get for my money. I have used slickedit since it was not called Visual Slickedit. I used Slickedit 1.0 on OS/2. I'm loyal but I'm not going to pay for support in a period when I get nothing. I don't make support requests.

If we can only expect up-to-date support for Visual Studio by waiting for a new version of the editor as we are going to have to for Visual Studio 2013 (and who knows about 2014) then I expect to get a new version in a timely fashion or an update to v18 to support it.

If I want a generic editor I have plenty. I have Sublime Text, Atom, VIM, Emacs, Eclipse.

Slickedit is a commercial product it's not a charity. I don't pay $60 a year just to help them out. I expect something in exchange.

Slickedit is also the most expensive editor I have ever purchased. It's a lot more expensive than any of those other editors that I listed above.

Set your own expectations but don't feel so important that you think the rest of us have to set ours to match yours.

I have to echo the comments above.  It's important to provide value for the support/maintenance we are paying for.  It's looking as if you are putting that at risk for many of your users.  What is the current release target for the 2014 release and on what platforms?

Everyone,

I have worked at SlickEdit for 12 years and in that time we have missed our planned spring upgrade cycle two times.  Each of those times SlickEdit has done the right thing for our customers, and provided them a free upgrade if their support lapsed.  Clark (SE Founder) & I are in full agreement and will honor that commitment for this cycle as well.

When the new release is available, our IT department will analyze which customers support expired and did not receive a free upgrade during their support period and will adjust their SlickEdit web account so they are able to receive it for free.  This process may take up to a week after the new version is released and we appreciate your patience, or you may contact the sales department (1-919-473-0070) and they will work to expedite your request within a day.

As for the availability of SE19.  Clark and the Engineering team are shooting for the end of July for the beta, and depending on the beta cycles the GA release should be near the end of Aug./early Sept.  We agree this is much later than prior years, but there is some complex UI work being done and we will not release the beta until we believe the quality of the code is there.

If anybody should encounter problems obtaining your free upgrade through either of these processes, please feel free to contact me directly.

We thank you and appreciate the loyalty you have intrusted in SlickEdit.

While I don't claim to know the _best_ way to communicate that, i think making a general announcement to that effect would go a long way. 

Though given the number of views this topic has received, you might have achieved that already.

Besides of VIM or anything that have tagging services, maybe SlickEdit is the only IDE I could've use on on my work, easy to use, especially for the no-brainer setup, saves a lot of time.

Well, keep up the good work.

Where can I find the differences between 2013 and 2014? I am trying to determine how much the $60 is actually getting me and I couldn't find a composite listing of the improvements.

As far as SlickEdit goes, I'd never actually had any real issues with it in the past and had been using is since 2008...

I will be developing in C and Python

Post by: jimlangrunner on July 30, 2014, 08:55:50 pm
While I am nowhere near the power user some folks here are, I use SlickEdit a lot for a variety of things.  PS Scripts, .php pages, C++ programming, Cobol, you name it. 

I have found over the years that the $5/month tariff for support is more than made up for in features I never thought I'd use, but I find useful at the oddest times.

The Slick Team will publish a list of changes and improvements when they release the Beta (as they've done in the past) and you'll be able to review it yourself.  They've hinted at a variety of things, but I don't know that they've compiled the complete feature list yet.

For my purposes, the list of enhancements is irrelevant.  Even if I see nothing in there I want or need, I'll run across something useful in the next year that will make it worthwhile. And if I don't, I will the following year with VS 2015. 

Perfect?  No.  Worth $5/month?  You betcha.  And I held out when I first bought it.  Didn't buy maintenance, and wasn't eligible when it came with a feature I really needed.  I wound up buying it again.  The following year, they introduced a discount for people like me.  In short, they do the right thing, and are worthy of the investment from me.

I wondered if this was spam but I guess you're referring to this (which I never heard of)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rust_(programming_language) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rust_(programming_language))

<quote>The goal of Rust is to be a good language for the creation of large client and server programs that run over the Internet</>

What languages/ platforms is it competing with?
What especially makes it suitable for internet client server systems?
How many people are using it?
Who controls the language specification?

It's unlikely that support for Rust is on the slick todo list, just guessing.

Yes, that's what I meant. Rust is a system language like C, designed to be safer and with good concurrency support. It's backed by the Mozilla Foundation and is already used in several medium-sized programs (including the Rust compiler itself). I think it's pretty stable at v0.11 but not yet v1.0, which should happen this year.

I agree it's quite a minor language, it's not even in the TIOBE index (http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html) though I found another ranking based on SO and GitHub that mentions it as growing fast (http://redmonk.com/sogrady/2014/01/22/language-rankings-1-14/).

Anyway... I am a user of Slickedit for quite a few years now but never played with language support... Has anyone experience with using Slickedit with a non-supported language? For example, if functions are "fn NAME() {...}" or "fn NAME(n: uint) -> uint {...}" can Slickedit be configured to understand that and cross reference the source?

Thanks for any hint on this!
Title: Re: Is Slickedit 2014 on the near horizon?
Post by: Graeme on August 10, 2014, 08:58:00 am
There's a tutorial on how to do it here
http://blog.slickedit.com/2008/05/tutorial-adding-language-support-to-slickedit/ (http://blog.slickedit.com/2008/05/tutorial-adding-language-support-to-slickedit/)
but see this too
http://community.slickedit.com/index.php/topic,9794.0.html (http://community.slickedit.com/index.php/topic,9794.0.html)

In the tutorial, it describes what to do for logo support.  In step six (tagging support) it explains you have to write a function logo_proc_search (rust_proc_search in your case).  In logo, a function definition starts with the keyword "to" e.g.
Code: [Select]
to square
repeat 4 [forward 50 right 90]
end

and a variable declaration starts with the keyword "make" (I think), so the slick c file logo.e has this code
Code: [Select]
   // search for the next line that has either a "to" or a "make"
   int status = search("^(:b|)(to:b|make:b[\"])"fn,"@rih>Xcs");
   if (status) {
      return status;
   }

   // grab the line and parse out the keyword and function name
   get_line(line);
   parse strip(line) with kw proc_name args;
   switch (lowcase(kw)) {
   case "to":
      proc_name = tag_tree_compose_tag(proc_name,"","proc",0,args);
      break;
   case "make":
      proc_name = substr(proc_name,2) :+ "(gvar)";
      break;
   }

Now here's where it gets a bit tricky.  tag_tree_compose_tag is a function that generates a function signature  e.g. for the square function above, the statement
parse strip(line) with kw proc_name args
results in kw value is "to", proc_name value is "square" and args is ""
so tag_tree_compose_tag generates a string which is the function signature for the square function.  The third argument to tag_tree_compose_tag is "proc"  - this identifies "square" has having a tagging type of "procedure".
Type fp tag_tree_compose_tag on the slick c command line to see more about it.

In the case of the "make" keyword which declares  a variable e.g. in logo
MAKE "X 100
creates a variable called X and gives it value 100
so substr(proc_name,2) strips off the leading " character resulting in proc_name becoming the string X(gvar)    - gvar identifies the tag name as a global variable. The :+ operator concatenates strings.

Slick C is very close to "C with dynamic types".  If you search the slickedit installation macros folder for _proc_search you'll see other proc_search functions. e.g. in modula.e (modula2/modula3) you'll see the code below.  The function doesn't call tag_tree_compose_tag at all - which might be because modula2 doesn't support overloaded functions.  The fifth line does this
status=search('^[ \t]*'_keywords':b:v[ \t]*[(;:]','@rhe');
This code is using "auto concatenation" of strings  -  _keywords is a string variable and '^[ \t]*' is a string so slick c lets you run them together.  The second argument to the search function is the string '@rhe'.  "help" for the slick c "search" function says that '@' means "no error message";  'r' means interpret the search string as  a regular expression using "slickedit" type regular expression; 'h' - search hidden lines; 'e' - case insensitive.


Code: [Select]
_str mod_proc_search(var proc_name,boolean find_first,_str extension)
{
   int status=0;
   _str _keywords='(PROCEDURE)';
   if ( find_first ) {
      if ( proc_name:=='' ) {
         status=search('^[ \t]*'_keywords':b:v[ \t]*[(;:]','@rhe');
      } else {
         word_chars := _clex_identifier_chars();
         status=search(proc_name,'@he>w=['word_chars']');
      }
   } else {
      status=repeat_search();
   }

It sure would be good to see. My maintenance expires in one week and I would like to see what the new version looks like before I decide whether to extend. After all, I did pay maintenance already one year ago and have seen nothing since.

Clark has made it pretty clear that everyone that had maintenance around the first of the year (when new version is usually released) will get the upgrade, whether maintenance has expired or not.  Your support should be automatically extended if it has lapsed. If it's not, simply contact sales and they'll take care of you.

They're good people.

I've been a SlickEdit user since 2001 and a Core for Eclipse (Core) user since it was called "Plugin" v3.3, somewhere around 2007.  I was reading this thread and was particularly interested in the comments about users' not getting any updates during the past year of their support agreements and the responses by Rick and Clark about how Slickedit will make it right by them.

Over in Core-land, we have not had a new version of the Core product for nearly 3 years now.  Since December 01, 2011 to be exact.  That version of Core was to be paired with Eclipse Indigo.  Since then, Juno and Kepler have come and gone and now Eclipse is up to the Luna release.  The Core team finally started talking about targeting a beta for September of last year, released one on 10/29 of last year, and last time I checked, Core was still in beta nearly a year later.  During that time it was my experience that Core was nearly impossible to use on the post-Indigo releases of Eclipse.  It was just too unstable. 

On 10/10 of last year I spoke to my salesman, Chris Smith, about the lack of an update to the Core product, its instability when paired with Juno, and the fact that Slickedit had not given me my money's worth for my past year's subscription fee, a situation I see as completely analogous to users' complaints here of not receiving an update during their past year's support period.  Chris more or less dismissed my concerns and seem to think that any use of the product was sufficient justification for the subscription fee.  Never mind the fact that Slickedit gave me a choice of either using Core on an old and inefficent version of Eclipse or using it on a newer version in a very unstable combination.  Never mind that I lost hours and hours of work due to hard crashes and workspace corruption.  Never mind that I had to just stop using it and use SE v17 for my editing and bare Eclipse Juno/Kepler for debugging and other development activities.  Never mind that the user forum that is intended to be the support vehicle for Core is nearly useless because questions sit unanswered for weeks at a time. 

So I gave up.  I dropped my SE maintenance when it came due last year, and in April of this year when my Core subscription came due with no new product available, despite being in beta since October of last year, I did not renew that either.  The 2-IDEs-for-1-job thing was working well enough (or rather was not enough of a PITA) that I was not going to spend good money after bad for a product that, despite nearly a year in beta, still has no official release date. 

And then I saw this thread with Slickedit users' complaints about not receiving anything for their past year's fee and the executives' statements of how Slickedit will do right by its customers, and wondered why nothing similar has been said regarding Core, despite the issue being raised in the Core forum and directly with my salesman, and despite the fact that the situation with Core is nearly 3 times as bad as with Slickedit in terms of how long users have gone without an update.  Can you please explain this?  I'd really like to return to being an active Slickedit customer, but unless something will be done to make things right by Core users, who are far more aggrieved at this point than users of the base product, that's not going to happen.

Post by: macjohnmcc on September 23, 2014, 03:52:56 pm
I sympathize with you regarding getting updates. My Windows Slickedit is on version 2007 still because the cost to buy Slickedit again plus maintenance to get it up-to-date is not worthwhile. I do have an up-to-date mac version with support but rarely use the product.

The current system of paying for maintenance and the lack of reasonable upgrade fees from older products feels more like buying into an online game. Pay a big price to get started and a monthly (in this case) yearly fee on top of that to keep current. Skip a period and soon you are ineligible for maintenance and upgrade and have to start all over again. The price for Slickedit isn't cheap to begin with and you basically have to pay that plus the first year maintenance to ensure that you are in the cycle to maintain your product. At this point it feels more like a subscription model with a big upfront cost. Adobe photoshop is less expensive to buy into ($10 a month with no upfront fees) on their subscription model and I can run it on any platform without buying in again and paying another maintenance fee.

The SE2014 beta is in its final phases of development and the product is looking very solid (a BIG Thank You to everyone for the awesome beta tester support).  We are planning a general release candidate (RC) early next week.  After a successful RC, we anticipate SE2014 to be released the first week of November.

Thank you.

I don't quite understand the above posts. Does that mean you now have to pay a yearly fee to get hotfixes for your existing version? Or does this only apply to new major versions? I mean, I am not a person that needs a new software version every year and I used an older versin of Slickedit for many years, but if you don't even get bugfixes anymore with a paid product, that's not very encouraging.

RE: an upgrade - contact Sales.  They heard our cries several years ago and took pains then to help us out. 

The maintenance fee is not terribly high to support the product. For $5/month, I get the upgrades every year, as well as the ability to file a support ticket with Slick should I need to do so.  While I didn't think it was worthwhile when I first bought the product, I do think so now, and I happily pay the support fee. That feeds the developers & their families while I get the use of a pretty good product and deal with a company I like to support and do business with.

I agree with you Jim. Slickedit is such an important tool for me that I don't mind paying the fee at all.

I originally bought my copy in 2006 when I was working as a contractor. As I moved between jobs I needed a consistent development environment. I consider the maintenance fee to be money well spent. Like you, I am happy to be helping to support the people that bring us a great product.

I second that and in fact it's rather cheap for this product class !
For example I pay about 30$ per year for an other tool which is quite nice but by far not as complex and sophisticated as SE.
Besides the fact that SE is the tool I'm using most of my (working) time..

Ok, I see your point. Usually I am not one who chases after the latest version of a software if the older version works well for me. I will check out Slickedit again, since I want to add Ada to my daily tools and I would prefer to have one editor instead of two, and probably will also have to start using Linux in the near future, so that's another reason then, since I really dont want to switch between two or three IDEs

Note that support won't get you Linux - you'll need to buy upgrade to the dual windows/linux license to run both.

OTOH, if you have a license for the Windows version, you can open & manage the files on the Linux machine/share in its native format.  And vice-versa - if you buy the Linux version, you can manage the Windows files natively.

I do this with my Windows version and manage files on both a Linux box and an old SCO box.  (Don't ask....)

Bump!

With the great quality and great users exchanging experience with each other, I won't hesitate to pay the fee.
