Light Table 0.4!

Hey Everyone,

I'm proud to announce that as of today, Light Table has Python eval and one of the best JS workflows out there:

      I'm really enjoying just playing around with Light Table right now. So many cool things to play with and try. I'm going to have to start a full project with it soon.

      On a side note: If your are excited about Light Table and want to talk about it, along with the official google groups channels I've started a G+ community at

      It's a little quiet right now, but hopefully we can start some conversations there as well. :)

      Now that I'm using it as my primary editor, I'd say one feature implementation really comes to forefront: - When you restart, it would be very nice to have the option to reopen the closed files. Especially useful in light of the quick update cycle.

      @larry LT doesn't use Java anymore unless you eval Clojure. Can you give us more information about what's happening?

      It immediately throws a java case exception. Each release is worst than the previous!

      This is starting to become really impressive. Any chance of adding TypeScript support (maybe impossible since that goes through an MS compiler).

      Congratulations and great work- LT just keeps getting better and better :)

      I had to install Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy from to make it work on Windows though 0.3.9 worked with default policies.

      Did you integrate some kind of backdoor there? :)

      This is a great update!
