There’s nothing like actually using something for finding out bugs.

So jTextile is now incorporated into a project at work, and its quality has improved imeasurably.

I’m pleased to say that we even handle all 5 bugs in Textile4j correctly (as of time of writing).

People seem worried that jTextile uses gnu regexes instead of the in built JDK functions, but to me this is a decided advantage as it can be deployed on 1.3 JVMs.

Maybe I’ll port it to 1.4 at some point, but there’s no mad rush. It works, and works (increasingly) well.

Now if only Phil would release the latest code :-)
