The Eclipse Koneki development team is pleased to announce the availability of its Lua Development Tools, that can be installed via the Koneki update site (see explanations at the bottom of this message). I just thought that you might want to give it a try to see if it helps you guys to write Lua more efficiently... or not ;-)
Not only LDT is providing you with the features you would expect from any IDE (syntax highlighting, code folding, ...), but a really nice addition is that we include a real Lua debugger, well integrated in the IDE (thanks to Eclipse DLTK, actually).
- Syntax coloring
- Error markers
- Code folding
- Code templates
- Occurrence highlighting
Features to be implemented soon
- Code formatter
- LuaDoc support
- Custom interpreter definition
To give Lua Development Tools a try, it is super easy: just add the Koneki update site  to your Eclipse 3.6+ installation (Help > Install New Software...), and install "Lua Development Tools (Incubator)".
Any kind of feedback is very welcome! :)
