First we are looking for a Java developer, must have some experience with making a syntax highlighter. I can provide all of the strings that would need to be matched.
Next, I am currently heading down to version 3. This means a number of features have been cut, I know, but I feel that until I have an environment that is much more capable, I won't ever have a MIPS IDE. All in all, I feel that this will allow the project to move forward in a better direction than previously. It will make this project considerably more extensible.
