6.16.1955 is out.
* Python3.3
* del "Html Tidy", it's plugin now
* del "Lorem Ipsum", it's plugin now
* del "Text converters", it's plugin now
* del "New plugin" tool, it's plugin "Make plugin" now
* del files (SynPlugins.sample.ini, Py3.2 related)
* moved menu "Plugins" in root
+ preinstalled "HtmlTidy", "ColorPicker", "MakePlugin"

BTW, I really like how this app is coming along. If you have a look at the .chm file, under the section "make an ide", the size can be reduced depending on what you delete - I removed these without any issue... lightened the size by 12+ MB...

Fabulous MySQL software. One of my favourite pieces of Windows software. Only my browser and text editor get more use. Nice and fast.

StrokesPlus is a a mouse gesture recognition program that allows you to automate repetitive tasks by simply drawing a symbol with your mouse or performing mouse and/or keyboard modifiers to launch predefined action(s). Includes a powerful but lightweight embeddable scripting language (Lua), endless gesture and modifier combinations, granular control over program settings, and actions and the possibility to create global hotkeys for actions without using the mouse.

What's new?
  • Added preference for Minimum Gesture Length. This tells S+ how far from the gesture start the mouse needs to have traveled before considering that a gesture has been started (drawn gestures only).
  • Updated language file to include support for new preference:
    Default: "Min. Gesture Length:"
    Default: "px"

I'd like to note that for Windows Vista+, if you extract the signed version of S+ to a folder under Program Files and manually install the StrokesPlus.cer certificate into Trusted Root Certification Authorities, S+ can be run without administrative privileges and still interact with programs which are running with administrative privileges as well as interact with Windows 8 screens (Start screen, task switcher, etc.).

Yes, I also understand that at that point (installing a certificate), you're no longer really using S+ in a truly portable fashion; but wanted to mention it anyway =)

There is a typo in the link, which is pointing to a non-existent strokesplus_2.7.8.1_x86.zippip, rather than to
