digitalmars.D.announce - SkyIDE Beta 12 (Reloaded) Released

Hello friends,

I am happy to announce the release of SkyIDE Beta 12, Codename: Reloaded.
Probably about 50% of the code has been completely re-written from scrach in
beta 12.

I really need testers to report bugs ASAP so I can fix them ane make it work
properly if it doesn't.
For new users, SkyIDE supports Digital Mars D. Of course feedback is greatly

SkyIDE runs on Windows 2000+

In Beta 12 the interface has been polished with the new project explorer,
history and favorite panes + new bookmarking
method (highlighting the whole line instead of a putting a dot only).

Release Notes:

+ Brand new project manager...completely re-written. - The entire "folder"
and subfolders and all files within the folder and subfolders are part of a
SkyIDE project so every single file and folder within the project folder is
automatically part of SkyIDE's project because they reside inside the
project folder. You can add files within the project folder using any file
manager and they simply become part of the project because every single file
and folder is part of the project. This make SkyIDE projects very portable!

+ Folders are shown in a tree-like view.
+ Project Propertites next to the new Project Exlorer

+ Import Foreign Project - converts almost any non-SkyIDE project to a
SkyiDE project
