EDE is an Emacs Lisp program which implements an environment similar to those found in IDEs (Integrated Development Environment). While Emacs is the premier development environment, and has lots of support for this activity, EDE brings many divergent commands used for debugging, and compiling and sticks them into a simple menu next to commands used for maintaining a project file.
What EDE brings to the party is an awareness of how a singular source file fits into the overall scheme of an application. EDE knows what target a file belongs to, and will offer the correct options automatically when debugging or compiling.
EDE is an object oriented program which defines a set of core virtual objects representing a project and target. Actual implementations expound upon these providing the actual functionality.
Teaching EDE to wrap your project provides an Emacs API for other tools to use to find source code in your project.
EDE supports multiple project styles. Project stiles that come with EDE by default include:

All the CEDET tools are available from a single distribution file to ease installation.
Latest Stable Release: CEDET 1.1
Try out cedet-1.1.tar.gz.
CEDET 1.1 includes all the security fixes from 1.0.1, a long list of bug fixes, and additional new features to support Java, Android and Arduino programming!
Our goal for CEDET 1.1 is that this will be the LAST release using the current install and file organization schemes. This will also be the last release to support Emacs 22! Future released versions will use a new file system scheme compatible with Emacs 24.<
After building CEDET 1.1, consider joining the mailing list and help make CEDET better.
Previous Stable Release: CEDET 1.0.1
The previous stable release is cedet-1.0.1.tar.gz. You will need CEDET 1.0.1 for older versions of Emacs, such as Emacs 21 or 22.1.
About this Security Release:
Did you find a bug?
If you encounter problems with a CEDET release, those issues may have already been fixed in Git! CEDET has an active community of users that help identify and fix these issues quickly. You can check the mailing list archives or just try the Git version directly.
When using CEDET from Git, please note that we are transitioning to a new file and install scheme to be more compatible with Emacs 24. Changes will be required in your .emacs.
Emacs Version Support:
CEDET 1.0.1, and 1.1* has TWO automated build processes, one via Make, and the other via starting Emacs, and executing a build command.
This table shows the automated testing done for the release of CEDET 1.1:
Emacs 21 CEDET's test suite will fail, but most parts still work for CEDET 1.0.1.
XEmacs Neither build process works with XEmacs 21.4. It is possible to build parts of it by hand it so it works however.
SXEmacs We have integrated patches to support SXEmacs, but we haven't tested it ourselves. Parts of CEDET have been reported to install and work.
If you do not have cygwin, you will need to use the cedet-build.el
script to build CEDET.
