Isabelle/c83727c7a510 now bundles the MacOSX plugin -- it is off by 
default to avoid multiplatform confusion.

People connected to the Isabelle repository need to tick the plugin in the 
Plugin Manager -- without download. I think that an update from the 
official jEdit plugin repository will override the bundled one.  This did 
work already some weeks ago with Highlighter.

Moreover Mac users should enable the native system look-and-feel in 
Utilities / Options / Global Options / Appearance, if this is not the case 

This configuration supports many Apple things, like full-screen mode, 
drag-and-drop of text files on the running application window, preferences 
menu, about menu, quit menu and quit action in the dock.

The Isabelle.app for end-users will have both the Mac OS X look-and-feel 
and the plugin enabled by default. It also provides a proper application 
icon. File types via .thy extensions are still missing, though, since the 
underlying appbundler 1.0 by Oracle does not support this yet.
