It seems not possible to install this plugin on NB 7.3.1


I cannot install this plugin because of the following message:

- Some plugins require plugin Editor Library 2 to be installed.
- Some plugins require plugin Editor Settings Storage to be installed.

Is it possible to publish a new version with up-to-date dependencies for this plugin?

Is there a way to get it to work with NetBeans 7.1.0?

(Note: It doesn't work in 7.1.0)

Thank you very much.
