Hallo, yesterday I switched from epic 0.4.17 to 0.4.20. Since I was unable to edit Files with the suffix ".ep". All I got is a NullPointerException (see below). If I renamed these files to any other extension associated with the Epic-editor I could edit them as usual. I had to deassign .ep from the Content Type "Perl Source File", deassociate .ep with the EPIC-Editor. After reassigning to Perl Source File and reassociating it with the EPIC-Editor now everything works as expected. Is this behavior to be considered a bug or just bad manners of my enviroment ( Fedora 6 ) ?

There was a problem in versions 0.4.18 and 0.4.19 which resulted in a NPE when opening files. This is hopefully fixed in 0.4.20. If you had been experiencing NPE with either of these two previous versions and then upgraded to 0.4.20, I would say this helped and not reassigning content types/associations. Unless you find some way to reproduce the problem with the current version, I wouldn't recommend to enter it as a bug.
