I suggest to port Jython from JLine 1 to 2.

Jeff, I put you on the nosy list for this one in case you have some insight about the viability of us moving to JLine 2.

Good idea in principle. It seems not to be too much of a leap. We won't get bugs fixed in JLine now, and I think I spotted one to do with tab-handling when ANSI escapes are used (Linux, not Windows).

I notice it depends on Jansi ( License implications?

Not supporting JLine 2 is causing problems when mixing 32 bit and 64 bit execution on windows; see bug #2122 and; presumably this has been subsequently fixed (and would only be fixed regardless in JLine 2 if still present).

Re jansi, it appears to be licensed under Apache Software License 2, which we freely mix into Jython, just as we do with BSD-licensed jars like JLine.

This appears to be blocking IPython support (see, and is generally a good thing to do

I don't see this as a must have for beta 4, but it would be ideal if we could get it done by then

Possibly causing the hanging problem for help on Windows, as reported in #2209
