Mylyn Wikitext ( https://wiki.eclipse.org/Mylyn/WikiText ) provides another implementation of Markdown support, which I prefer to this one.

I've switched from the WikiText Editor to this Markdown editor to get task tag support, but alas it doesn't seem to work or I can't get it to work.

My preferences contain this task tags list: TODO,FIXME,LATER

None of the following show in Eclipse's task list after saving an .md file:
> TODO test 1
TODO test 2
`TODO` test 3

Not sure how to make this work...

The highlight is very poor, even titles are highlighted.

With pull request https://github.com/winterstein/Eclipse-Markdown-Editor-Plugin/pull/37 by Telmo Brugnara the coloring is improved substantially.

I can't install anything from http://winterstein.me.uk/projects/tt-update-site/ references here,
and home page http://www.winterwell.com/software/markdown-editor.php references other update site http://winterwell.com/software/updatesite/ that has only 0.2.3

Where is 0.9 ?

Hello Paul,

Thank you for flagging this up.

The versioning changed when ThinkTank Mathematics closed and the project moved to Winterwell.
We'll do a 1.0 release soon to bring it inline with the old numbering.

The correct update site is: http://winterwell.com/software/updatesite/
I've updated the marketplace entry as you suggested.

Best regards,
- Daniel

I like this extension for the word wrapping, but I'm not sure of the other formatting features.
