2016-10-13 - Code Browser 6.0 Released
While this is a major new version, it does not introduce a lot of new features, it mainly restores features available in version 4.9 that were removed in version 5:
- Links are now displayed in the outlines again.
- Page View is back.
- Find All is back: find in current file, section or selection.
- Option to follow links in search is back.
- Configuration files: variables are back.
It is now possible to records a serie of commands and replay it.
Bold and italic styles can be used with fixed fonts.
There are more keywords to specify highlighting: identifier, type, constants, variables, ... instead of word1, word2, word3 word4. If you have defined custom themes or additional languages, you'll have to update it.
The Project feature has been simplified, it's now just a directory that can contain a specific option file .project.cbc and a specific script file .project.cbs. Opening a project just means selecting a directory and it will automatically appear in the Project tree view. The directory can contain a specific option file containing for instance additional directories to include in the tree and project related user tools.
The incremental search has been improved to highlight a bit better the current match and to show more clearly when there is no match.
The editor now works internally with UTF-16 on Windows and UTF-8 on Unix instead of UCS-2 on all platform. So it supports non-BMP Unicode characters and it makes it a bit faster on Linux as it saves encoding conversions with the GTK+ API.
