Crossedit (also known as CF Edit) was the original map editor for Crossfire. The application required X window system release 5 with Athena Widget Set and an ANSI C compiler to compile this program.
Crossedit is currently at version 1.2.0 - which is unchanged since Crossfire version 0.95.3; the editor version was bumped up for each release of Crossfire until v0.95.3
The Java Editor (CF Java Editor) succeeded CF Edit
CFJavaEditor (a.k.a. the Java Editor) is the more used of the two crossfire map editors. It is contained in the “cfjavaeditor” CVS module, which was not moved into SVN. This editor is succeeded by gridarta. There have not been any gridarta releases yet.
