This problem occurs in Mac OS X 1.8 with many third-party applications that are not signed for Gatekeeper.

You can work around it by removing the "quarantine" flag on the app bundle with this Terminal command (assuming you've copied jEdit into the Applications folder):

xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine /Applications/jEdit.app/

Thank you, Popguru! Your reply helped me, except that I had to use:
sudo xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine /Applications/jEdit.app

(Note: no trailing slash and "sudo" otherwise I got "xattr: [Errno 13] Permission denied")

Most intimidating screenshot ever seen ;-)

Seems like it includes a bunch of useful features, but lacks of some basics, such as a decent memory footprint, text encoding auto-detect (opens as Mac-Roman a '' html file) and specially OS integration (access to services, standard file browser in a "save as" or "open"dialog, etc.).

Tried about 10-20 texteditors for xhtml/css for mac os x.

Among them are:
subethaedit, which I use for smaller things like opening random files for fixing.

skedit which is very good.

textmate, ok, but if you want a cocoa editor use skedit or subethaedit.

bbedit (which I cant understand why anyone like for xhtml/css... useless for professional production.. to oldskool)

This was the best / fastest / most customizable and it is also free and makes collaboration with others easy...

windows/linux/mac os x

Works fine CSSedit which is the current best csseditor

jEdit is the winner

The similar names of inferior products is an issue. Maybe it's time to rename?

Just remember folks... it's the one at
http://jedit.org/

I've used this exclusively for over a year now. It's beat out skEdit, TextMate, BBedit and more.

Those mentioned that even come close cost over 50 dollars.

This software is free free free.

I use it for:

Editing XHTML, PHP, CSS, and Inform

There are about 3 or 4 editors with this exact name, but this is the only one worth remembering. I just wish the UI was faster / more-native feeling.

jEdit is quite fast even when compared to some native editors, but you do need to remember that the more plugins you install, the slower its startup speed will be. Also, you need more memory for java apps.

This be some good stuff! The only thing I could ask for is a faster startup. I really get frustrated with slow startup times and the sluggish behaviour that comes with java apps. It would be nice if the load time could at least be cut in half. Otherwise fantastic!
The OSX interface is on the sluggish side too, it really frustrates the heck out of me.
