I have seen that the news section on the Jcreator website has not been updated since 2012. I think that the program ends there. It does not work on Windows 8 (Jcreator forum post metioned it)
I think I will have to find a new program to edit and compile Java Applets with when I get Windows 8.
notepad++ I have been using for HTML5 and it works ok so I will be trying that. Jcreator is an easy and good editor and compiler and this one I will use for as long as I can.
I have been thinking of what examples to create next for the blog. I will mention the ideas and thoughts on my Twitter.
