I've been using eDitor over the last month for an AI project at my
university (in D). This is the following bugfix release, which fixes all
known problems to date.


Changes (0.43 to 0.44)

Features:
  * Documentation updates: D 1.10, Phobos 1.10, Tango 0.96-b2. 
  * Support for Qt's UI files.

Bugfixes:
  * Saving of project settings to the *correct* file is now working again. 
  * Loading documentation when in a project sometimes failed. 
  * Non-documentation tabs sometimes had the save buttons disabled. 
  * Documentation sometimes became inaccessible after building a project.

Enjoy! ;)

Thanks Thomas,
I definitely like the clean interface
and the "project equals directory" approach!


(the following concerns win32, dmd 1.010, build 3.04)

Hm, it seems I haven't got the "run" part right:
build works perfectly, compiling me a main.exe.
But when I try to run the program from eDitor nothing happens
(also no text in the "output" field at the bottom).
The project settings are
my main.d for the main source file,
my main.exe for the file to run.
Did I miss anything?

And how do I use the "outline" feature?
I'm not entirely certain how I can activate it,
currently it shows only "-class -todo -int main()".

A nice improvement to your program would be
the possibility to choose the font (or at least the size)
in the program settings. To change the size is
currently possible in the documentation
(I guess you use an extern html renderer?)
by combining strg+mousewheel.
(now that I'm testing it, I can't bring
my mousewheel(=scrolling) to work in the source - only in the docs;
but since currently I only have a touchpad here
and that works sometimes better than sometimes else
I can't confirm that).

Thanks again for your good work!
David

No, it would seem that *I* missed something ;) I'll upload a bugfix release later today.
 And how do I use the "outline" feature?

That feature is work-in-progress and isn't implemented at all in eDitor 0.44. I'll change the text in the bugfix release to reflect this fact.

 the possibility to choose the font (or at least the size)
 in the program settings. 

Okay, I'll add both.
 To change the size is 
 currently possible in the documentation
 (I guess you use an extern html renderer?)
 by combining strg+mousewheel.
 (now that I'm testing it, I can't bring
 my mousewheel(=scrolling) to work in the source - only in the docs;
 but since currently I only have a touchpad here
 and that works sometimes better than sometimes else
 I can't confirm that).
 

For doc widgets, I'm using Qt's internal rich text renderer, it features a subset of html. The source editor widget is qscintilla, and I don't think there is any default mouse mappings to it, though there might be.
 Thanks again for your good work!

This is mostly a bugfix release fixing the Windows builds ability to execute
programs in a command shell, though a requested feature, font
configuration, also has found its way in.

Changes (0.44 to 0.45)

Features:
  * Added options to configure font and font size.

Bugfixes:
  * Launching programs was broken on Windows 
  * Changed the example text in the outline tab, it should now be clear that
    this feature isn't implemented yet.

Get it here: http://brix-verden.dk/d/editor.html 

Known problems in this release:
The program settings dialog is somewhat unstable in Linux atm, with glibc
somtimes killing the program, should this happen then simply try again.
I'll look into a fix, but it is of a lower priority, as this part of the
program is mostly only used once.
