New Grep Console release: 3.1.1

A new version of Grep Console is out. Compared to the previous version, there are a few new features and bug fixes.


  • “Unless” expressions – An optional second regular expression can be configure for each item to prevent the item from being considered a match for certain strings even if the main expression matches. Thanks to Christian Afonso for suggesting this feature.
  • Case sensitivity – Case sensitivity of grep expressions can now easily be toggled via a checkbox. Thanks to “Tom” for suggesting this feature.
  • Jump to line – The Grep View context menu now provides an action for jumping to the selected line in the original console.
  • Support for more run configurations – The Grep Console tab is now available for JUnit, Eclipse RCP and CDT launch configurations.

Bug fixes:

Fixed null pointer issues in Eclipse 4.2 on Windows 7. Thanks to Mark Harkin and Didier Loiseau for reporting this bug.

  • Fixed item tree column sizing in Eclipse 4.2.
  • Item tree now uses the correct system text colours for selected and deselected lines. Thanks to “Bill” for reporting this bug.
  • Fixed a resource leak that would create too many style preview images, causing the system to run out of handles.
  • Fixed handling of non-standard line delimiters. Previously, lines that ended with non-standard delimiter characters would not be parsed correctly.
