I like the idea a lot, but find the execution lacking. For example, the icon is red even when there are no errors. I would expect green. Also, when it does find errors, it doesn’t allow you to double click on an issue to go straight to the culprit.
I hope it is updated to add those and other features to make this a truly useful tool.
Just read a recent article about the JVM targeted language Ceylon. As with most JVM languages, it has some interesting features and solves some of the irksome aspects of Java. However, I don’t see that the advantages currently outweigh the pain. Moving to a new language with its own issues is a big step. Sometimes the devil you know is the better option. How then does the new pretender supplant the bloated incumbent?
