LiClipse 1.0 released (Julia now supported)

LiClipse 1.0 has just been released.

It's now based on the latest Eclipse (4.4) and PyDev/other dependencies were also upgraded.

Support for the Julia Language: julialang.org was added in this release (so, 15 languages are now supported).

Also, the language support on LiClipse was improved so that a language can specify how to make a launch for it (see: http://brainwy.github.io/liclipse/launch.html for more details):

F9: Launches the currently opened editor using the executable specified in the language (and for those using PyDev, Shift+F9 will launch the editor in debug mode)
Ctrl+Shift+F9: Terminates the last launch and relaunches it
Ctrl+Alt+F9: Terminates all launches
Ctrl+F11: Relaunches the last launch

Also noteworthy is that when starting up LiClipse, when selecting the theme to use, an option to use the dark theme from Eclipse 4.4 is presented... I still prefer the one from LiClipse as it works better for me -- especially for those on windows -- but the option is there :)
