Right now I hope the jEdit guys will finally release the "Spring 2015" 
version before the winter comes on the northern hemisphere.

jEdit 5.3.0 was planned to appear early June 2015.  This summer I added 
various things on top of the repository version, expecting it to be 
post-release material, but they actually started picking it up after a few 
weeks and added most of it to the release branch.  This caused further 

My priority at the moment is to see a release of jEdit, before we enter 
the critical release phase for Isabelle2016 -- presumably at the start of 
the Winter season here in the north.

Once it is there, I will update the jedit_build component accordingly. 
Then we have a brief window of opportunity to add some small patches on 
top of the standard jEdit code base as part of the Isabelle distribution.
