I just committed a bunch of code to the 2.0 branches of Elk API and Elk Press. The codes is not as stable as the old code in the main branch, but it should work. As I wrote earlier, the Elk API has changed – to the better I hope. Feel free to checkout the code and give it a build.
If you use Eclipse 3.3 as your IDE and install the Subeclipse plugin, then you can create a project for the Elk API and a project for the Elk Press by checking out each one from Subversion (New > Project > SVN). You should then be able to run the Elk Press project in Eclipse’s embedded Tomcat (right-click project, Run As > Run on Server. This is great for debugging (Debug As > Debug on Server).
