Made a typo: you'll have to click on open in the context menu to connect and not "connect".

In the next release you'll just have to double click on the connection (already fixed and ready in the repository).

That seems one thing most people seem confused about and it will be better documented in the future (at some point =) ).

If you want to make a connection some things on the wizard page are optional and some ain't.

- you have to give the connection a name
- you have to pass either an IP or a hostname
- you don't have to fill in a username or password (then you will be asked for it on connecting, wdsc alike)
- you can put in a username and password (the password will be encrypted an you'll be asked where to store the key (not the password), you'll be asked where the key for decryption is stored on connecting)
- you can put in a username, password and tell it to store the key at a fixed place (this is the most convenient way because you'll just click connect and it will do so without asking anything as long as the key is in place)

I hope that explains it a little bit.

Getting connected is a little awkward. After creating the connection and
saving it to your HD, then you need to right click on it, select open, and
then it will prompt you to select a connection file. Go ahead and navigate
to the connection you just saved to your HD and then it should work.

OK, this might be a stupid question, but what prerequisites are there to
using NextGen? If I download it, all I seem to be able to do is go to the
first screen and I can't go any further... It talks about creating a new
connection, but I've done that, and I don't seem to be able to do any

Maybe I should just stick to SEU...

as the topic of the editor came to the lists a couple of days ago i just
wanted to inform both lists that the editor project has changed into an
open source project. Most plugins will become open source. I think in
this way the editor has the chance to evolve into a very complete IDE
rather than just an advanced text editor.

If you want to participate in the project you are very welcome. Your
help is much appreciated. You can express your help in many ways ... bug
reporting, testing, documentation or even plugin development. Feel free
to do so.


Thanx in advance.
