9.5 beta (01 Jul 2017) - https://foicica.com/textadept/CHANGELOG.html

Bugfixes:
  • Fixed bug that deleted characters outside of mangled snippets.
  • Fixed start-anchored “Find Prev” regex searches.
  • Correctly handle multiple ‘!’-prefixed patterns in file filters.
  • Scintilla: Pressing Esc while rectangular selection is active does not collapse it.
Changes:
  • Changed “Cancel Snippet” keybinding from Ctrl+Shift+K (⌥⇧⇥ on Mac OSX | M-S-K in curses) to Esc.
  • Added buffer.caret_line_frame option for outlining the current line.
  • Added buffer:line_reverse() for reversing selected lines.
  • Added ui.dialogs.colorselect() and ui.dialogs.fontselect() dialogs.
  • Handle pipes in shell commands for filter-through.
  • The Lua command entry prints results like Lua 5.3’s interactive prompt (e.g. no need for explicit ‘=’ prefix).
  • The Lua command entry now invokes bare functions as commands (e.g. copy invokes buffer:copy(), split invokes view:split(), etc.).
  • Scintilla: Updated case conversion and character categories to Unicode 9.
  • Scintilla: Update scroll bar when annotations are added, removed, or changed.
  • Effectively updated to Scintilla 3.7.5.

EDIT: As Midas noted below, this was a double-post of Lintalist's post above. Duplicate info (the changelog summary) has been removed.

---

Old thread update: this program is still in development, though the most recent update was back in November with more recent releases coming from an "alpha" version, which is assumed to be unstable.

@webfork: not to be a nitpicker (it's allways good to shine a light on good forgotten portables) -- but at first looks, your post looks like a double-post of Lintalist's... :shock:

Textadept does not track you. It does not attempt to connect to the internet. It is just a text editor.

Yesss! :mrgreen:

@midas I know, crazy isn't it. Must have been a lot of work adding that amazing feature, all those extra hours of coding and testing. Hats off to the developer. :shock:

11.0 alpha https://foicica.com/textadept/CHANGELOG.html

Bugfixes:
  • Fixed --help command line option.
  • Fixed Textadept API autocompletion and documentation on Windows.
  • Fixed bug that regards lexer-specific snippet files as global.
  • Fixed hangs on Win32 terminal version with textadept.editing.filter_through().
  • Fixed issues with buffer z-order when switching between views.
  • Fixed accidental clipping of first character in a snippet under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed C autocompletion error with typerefs.
  • Fixed skipping of event handlers that come directly after one that was just run, but disconnected.
  • Fixed bugs in the return values of ui.dialogs.standard_dropdown and msgbox dialogs.
  • Fixed events.FILE_CHANGED not emitting a filename.
  • Fixed bug with pipes in textadept.editing.filter_through().
  • Fixed tab label display on Windows.
  • Fixed bug in syntax highlighting with PHP, Django, and other lexers that embed themselves.
Changes:
  • All buffer positions, lines, and countable entities start from 1 instead of 0.
  • Support more Alt and Shift+Alt keys in the Win32 terminal version.
  • textadept.editing.api_files acts as if it already has lexer tables defined.
  • textadept.run.goto_error() wraps searches now.
  • Added snippet trigger autocompletion via textadept.editing.autocomplete('snippet').
  • Improved Lua API documentation generator.
  • Localization keys in _L no longer contain GUI mnemonics ('_').
  • textadept.snippets functions no longer have a '_' prefix.

  • The Lua command entry can now run any view functions by name (e.g. split).
  • Auto-pair, type-over, and auto-deletion of matching braces now works with multiple selections.
  • Removed textadept.file_types.lexers table in favor of asking the LPeg lexer for known lexer names.
  • Updated German translation.
  • Changed textadept.bookmarks.toggle() to only toggle bookmarks on the current line.
  • Removed '=' prefix in command entry that would print results; printing results has been the default behavior for quite some time.
  • Replaced buffer.style_name[] with buffer:name_of_style().
  • Session files are now Lua data files; old formats will no longer work.
  • Added events.SESSION_SAVE and events.SESSION_LOAD events for saving and loading custom user data to sessions.

  • ui.dialogs.filteredlist() dialogs have a reasonable default width.
  • Renamed keys.MODE to keys.mode.

  • Event handlers can now return any non-nil value instead of a boolean value and have that value passed back to events.emit().
  • Lua command entry completions show images just like in Lua autocompletion.
  • Align block comments by column if possible, not indent.
  • Added per-mode command entry history which can be cycled through using the Up and Down keys.
  • Added ui.dialogs.progressbar(), utilize it with Find in Files, and removed ui.find.find_in_files_timeout.
  • GUI find/replace history Up/Down history key bindings swapped, mimicking traditional command line history navigation.
  • The statusbar now indicates an active snippet.
  • Updated to PDCurses 3.9.
  • Experimental set of "standard" modules is provided in the modules archive instead of just language modules.
10.8 Bugfixes:
  • Fixed incorrect event arguments for events.AUTO_C_SELECTION_CHANGE.
  • Fixed bug in "Replace All in selection" with match at the end of a selection.
  • Fixed long line output for run, compile, and build commands.
Changes:
  • Changed events.TAB_CLICKED to emit button clicked as well as modifier keys.

+1. :slight_smile:

Funnily enough (and in reverse to what is usually the case around here), just today I was fumbling with the intricacies of setting TextAdept up for system-wide availability in the latest Ubuntu -- which I still haven't managed in an easy and straightforward way...

EDIT: for my own benefit, the relevant info is at https://foicica.com/wiki/FdoDesktop...
