What's new?

  • Notification icons now flash twice.
  • Switch left/right now updates syntax highlighting and preserves selected edit and scrolled position.
  • Rediff on save is no longer triggered if the rediff takes too long (press F6 to rediff manually).
  • Added:
    • Support for unicode line ending characters U+2028 and U+2029;
    • Context menu for when clicking outside text components.
  • Pressing tab now defaults to select the right text editor.
  • Fixed bugs:
    • With horizontal scrollbar sometimes not scrolling to the far right of the text;
    • With notification icons showing for files that could not be opened or no files at all, and not showing when diffing text directly without opening files.
  • Various optimizations and fixes.
