- September 1, 2001. Grant Corry, a reader on the Internet, writes to inform me that synedit, a text editor for Windows that I mentioned in Appendix 2, is no longer available (at least not on the Web site that I gave). I've removed the reference to this editor from the Appendix. Grant Corry recommends JCreator (http://www.jcreator.com/) for writing Java programs on Windows. JCreator is available in both a free version and and a shareware "pro" version. JCreator, however, is a IDE (integrated development environment, not a text editor. Readers who are using Java 1.3 might want to take a look at JEdit (http://www.jedit.org), a programmers' text editor written in Java that has many nice features.
- February 18, 2001. Version 3.1 of Introduction to Programming Using Java is released. It is a minor upgrade of Version 3.0 that incorporates a few changes and corrections. The major change is that modification and republication is now covered by the terms of the Open Publication License.
