CodeMix 3 is HERE!
Boom! We all know the 3rd major release is when the biggest kinks are finally out. Let's rejoice!
Interactive Tutorials
eLearning comes to CodeMix with an initial set of interactive tutorials right inside the product. These tutorials guide you through key CodeMix functionality while creating applications using modern technologies.
Performance Solved
We admit that it's been quite a road to achieve solid performance consistently with different Eclipse combinations and especially large projects. CodeMix 3 brings major improvements in how it interacts with and often stops other parts of Eclipse from doing excess work. You know, like WebTools trying to evaluate everything in node_modules!
More Keybindings
To make it easier to use the powerful features of Emmet in CodeMix, we've added a bunch of keybindings to directly access things like 'Wrap in Abbreviation' and more!
Advanced Commands
Certain commands accessed via Quick Open interface were not interacting properly, making them hard to use. We've rebooted how this works so you get the most out of available CodeMix commands.
Angular Tooling Fixes
For Angular Tooling users, key fixes have been released for the 'angular-ide' NPM module including an unfortunate memory leak and compatibility with the latest Angular CLI releases.
Fewer Popups on Startup
Installing CodeMix could feel quite noisy with lots of popups. We've heard you and smoothed out the startup experience, helping you quickly get into the fun of building apps!
New CodeMix and Tutorial Views
The new CodeMix view lets you explore everything from tutorials to learning center articles to get the most out of CodeMix. And the new Tutorial view works alongside for interactive tutorials.
Build Pipeline Tweaks
To simplify the experience, by default we've disabled showing the build panel which hovers over editors for traditional file types. You can change this setting at Project > Properties > CodeMix > Validation.
Oodles of Fixes
Making software is fun, right?! About 100 other fixes went into CodeMix 3, from more stable validation and reduced user interface quirks, to an array of fixes in Angular tooling. Please keep the feedback coming and say Hi on Live Chat if you haven't already!

Version CI 2018.7.18
Released: 18 Jul, 2018
CodeMix GA (2.0) is Coming!
This should be the last technical preview update before 2.0! Coming is build pipeline support allowing tools like 'tsc' to be used seamlessly. Woot woot!
Engine Updated!
The version of Code OSS used as part of the Engine has now been updated to the same as VS Code 1.24. Going forward updates will be much more frequent.
On-Demand Validation
In preparation for the coming build pipelines, you now decide when you want a project to start being built. No more will CodeMix try to validate projects you don't care about!
Friendlier Coexistence
If you explicitly have PDT or PyDev installed in Eclipse, CodeMix will keep out of the way letting you stay using those editors.
Validation Modes
Projects with CodeMix-validated files can be tuned in how aggressively CodeMix builds all files. Always? On request? It's your choice.
Bugs Squashed
As always, thanks for reporting issues! We've managed to squash another couple dozen bugs in this update.
Version CI 2018.6.27
Released: 27 Jun, 2018
CodeMix GA (2.0) is Coming!
We’re in the home stretch with the technical preview. In the background, we’re working on CodeMix 2.0 which includes new features like integrated TypeScript transpilation, a spiffed up Terminal that is much more responsive, and even a new version of Angular IDE built on top of CodeMix 2.0. Look for it late July!
Plays Nice with Others
CodeMix falsely believed it was always best. We've tried to educate it a bit and now it respects that JSP, JSF, YAML, etc. editors from standard Eclipse plug-ins are indeed better! For validation, by default it'll leave alone your current PyDev or PDT validation. No need to replace something already working well!
Faster Validation
When validating your projects, CodeMix is now much faster in working through those files. More is coming in this area in our 2.0 (GA) release next month but this one really smooths it out.
Better HTML Linting
The HTML validation was a bit aggressive especially when it comes to Spring files you may use like xhtml or Angular html files. The default validation is now much more normal focusing on larger structural issues and not minor things like uppercase attributes. Let's be honest, who really cares about attribute case! If you are part of the 2% that do, you can turn checks back on of course.
Simplified Launch Configurations
For common technologies like Node, PHP, and Python, it is now much easier to set up launch configurations from the UI without needing to muck in launch.json. Hello simplified debugging.
VS Code Engine Compatibility
You may have noticed that some extensions have stopped working if you’ve used VS Code alongside CodeMix. This is because those extensions may have been automatically updated. CodeMix now allows you to keep using those updated extensions. In addition, starting with CodeMix GA (2.0), you’ll be getting rapid updates to new VS Code versions.
Friendly Validation
Unfortunately our validation wasn't validating what you might want it to validate! From Project > Properties you can now control exactly what CodeMix validates. Your input was valid and we heard you!
Executables Verified
Trying to configure PHP or Python with CodeMix? Settings will now help ensure that the executable can be found either in the path or by absolute location. OK, the ugly side of the old logic was it would warn even if PHP was already in your path. CodeMix is deeply sorry for any confusion!
Version CI 2018.5.31
Released: 31 May, 2018
Folder Locking
In some situations CodeMix could cause folders to be locked disrupting external tool uage. Bugs in this area have now been properly squashed!
Engine Reliability
For particular users the CodeMix Engine could unexpectly fail. The Engine will now automatically recover and include more information in the Error Log for particular situations.
Snippet Placeholders
Placeholders in inserted snippets are now visually highlighted, making it easier to fill in all required variables.
Version CI 2018.5.24
Released: 24 May, 2018
Parameter Hints
When typing function parameters, you will see a popup with documentation corresponding to the parameter being entered! Easily switch between different function signatures.
Syntax Highlighting
Color mappings have been tweaked to present a better view of your source. CodeMix editor colors will better match theme settings, work well with Darkest Dark.
HTML Validation
The HTMLHint extension has been added to our Web extension pack - you will now see useful validation for your HTML files.
Smaller Updates
Modifications to how CodeMix is built allow us to ship updates that are smaller in size.
Data Privacy
In compliance with new privacy laws in the EU, CodeMix now lets you opt-out of anonymous usage metrics from within CodeMix preferences. Updated comprehensive privacy details will also be made available on the CodeMix portal.
Version CI 2018.5.14
Released: 14 May, 2018
Efficient Configuration
Use preset filters in the settings preference pages to drill down to key settings.

Version CI 2018.5.9
Released: 09 May, 2018
Quick Outline
Following the introduction of the Outline view, CodeMix now supports Quick Outline. Some Outline bugs were also fixed along the way.
Breakpoint Compatibility
If you use PyDev, PDT or JSDT, breakpoints can now be shared between both editors and launch configurations. For instance, keep using PyDev launches with the power of CodeMix editors!
Settings Improved
More settings are exposed, including editor tab configuration, and numerous bugs were squashed to make them easier to configure.
Better Editing!
When working with different configurations like the Compare Editor, CodeMix now handles changes better.
Bug Squashing
It wouldn't be a release without more bugs being squashed — from better reliability with proxies to less flicker when using content assist.
Version CI 2018.4.30
Released: 30 Apr, 2018
Outline View!
Due to popular demand, CodeMix now supports providing symbol information into the Outline view. More updates will come later like Quick Outline.
Word Highlighting
Also highly requested, word highlighting including matching tags and mark occurrence highlighting is now enabled in CodeMix.
New File Wizards
Sometimes the small things matter. You can now make a PHP, TypeScript or similar files right with their own simple wizards.
Validation Control
As part of CodeMix validation, skipping certain file types may be desired. Use the CodeMix preference pages to control exactly what is validated.
Editor Conflicts
Continuing from the last release, editors are now fully compliant in how they are integrated and will correctly respect changes made on the preference pages.
Numerous Fixes
Other improvements from Toggle Block Comment to a slew of bug fixes are also in this update. Keep the feedback coming!
Version CI 2018.4.20
Released: 20 Apr, 2018
Code Editing Keyboard Shortcuts

Key Fixes
A series of small fixes have been addressed based on user reports.
Version CI 2018.4.16
Released: 16 Apr, 2018
