Anjuta and Anjuta-extras 2.28.0 released

The new stable version of Anjuta has been released today in time with GNOME 2.28.

What’s new:

  • Many new features in the git plugin (James Liggett)
  • Improved symbol browsing and parsing including an integrated ctags (now called anjuta-tags). The return type of a function is now also shown in the calltip for C/C++. (Massimo’ Cora)
  • New project import dialog that can import directly from svn and git sources (Carl-Anton Ingmarsson)
  • Lot’s of bug-fixes in all areas (Sébastien Granjoux and many others)

What’ next:

Development doesn’t stop at this point of course and there are some things to come that we already planned:

  • Language support for Python and Javascript for the Summer of Code projects
  • Better autocompletion features for C++ (already in the cxxparser branch)
  • New parser for autotools projects that will allow a much better project management

You can download anjuta from or wait for your favourite distribution to supply updated packages. We will also try to create updated Ubuntu packages soon.

The new Anjuta-Extras package provides some plugins that cannot be shipped with the normal distribution for different reasons:

  • Valgrind
  • Profiler
  • Class-inheritance
  • Scintilla
  • Scratchbox

If you want to use one of this plugins, download and install anjuta-extras from!

Hi! Gdb has just been released with reversible debugging support, are there any plans for Anjuta to support this new feature?

Well, I just heard of it yesterday as well, so not yet, but feel free to file enhancement bugs for it. There is some other interesting stuff in 7.0, like just-it-time changes (not supported by gcc yet) and python bindings.
