Project Release Information
This release has fixes for tab width, the blocksync feature, scrollwheel zoom, language syntax detection and character encoding detection, toggle comment, split view, and more. Performance has been improved, most notably the speed of the auto-completion popup. New features include simpler search options, paste special (to paste images from LibreOffice, for example), control-tab to switch to the most recent document, save as copy, and pylint, cssmin, jsmin, csstidy, and php_beautifier integration.
This is a bugfix release. A regression in the search functionality causing a segfault, multiple replaces close to each other, and the broken cursor positioning in the Zencoding plugin were also fixed. On Windows, handling of the profile directory with non-ASCII characters was fixed and on Mac OS X, image browsing in the image dialog was fixed. Two GTK3-related bugs were fixed. Some small improvements were made such as slightly faster startup and no more annoying scrolling of the file browser. New features: duplicate line, delete line, and a Catalan translation.
This is mostly a bugfix release, but it has one major new feature: Zencoding support. The bugfixes include a fix to build on Gtk+-2.22, updates for many translations, a fix for PCRE regular expression searching, several layout fixes for Gtk+-3.2, several obscure segfault fixes, a fix for autocompletion of variables in PHP, <img> dialog fixes, and some memory-leak fixes.
This release works with GTK 3 (GTK 2 is still supported), and the syntax scanner had a major overhaul to make it faster. There is a new search and replace function, which also supports search and replace in files on disk. Other new features include a context-aware toggle comment function and a select block feature, the auto-completion of user-defined functions, and a jump function that will bring you immediately the the definition of a function. Many existing features have been improved and polished and support for new languages has been added, such as Google Go, Vala, and Ada.
This release improves syntax highlighting performance and performance when scrolling in large files. It adds a couple of features such as a split view feature, Clojure, Wordpress, Pascal, jQuery, Processing, and R syntax. Various features have improved such as tag closing, toggle comment, spell check with HTML entities, joining and splitting lines, bookmarks in projects, the preferences user interface, and more. On the portability front: language selection on Windows, and there is a binary for OSX 10.5 as well as 10.6. Two new translations are added: Nynorsk and Hungarian.
