48th Alpha Release
Haven't had much time to work on Editra lately so thought I would release the
changes that have been integrated since previous release. Main improvements
in this release are better handling of large files, improved Unicode handling,
and improved find performance. See changelog below for more details.
47th Alpha Release
This release adds support for highlighting some new file types and some minor
improvements to the auto-completions support. The Python auto-completion has been
improved to better handle updating when external modules that are analyzed
from import statements have changed during runtime as well as improvements to
the handling of properties and member attributes.
In addition to the features listed above there has been some library and
framework enhancements to help support future plugin development.
For details about additional changes and bug fixes please see the complete
This release contains no changes from previous release it is only a rebuild of the previous release using wxPython 2.8 until the issue that some systems where exhibiting using wxPython 2.9 in yesterdays build can be sorted out.
Downloads available at the usual locations.
A number of users have reported issues in regards to the new binaries used in the Windows release of version 0.6.76. I am yet to reproduce the issue but for the time being would suggest users of the Windows binary version of Editra to stay on 0.6.58 until the issue is resolved. A short interim release will be made when the cause of the issue can be determined.
45th Alpha Release
New in this release is the new Session Manager bar for managing editing sessions.
Along with the Session Manager the session feature has had a change to its
behavior, only the Default session will automatically update. All other custom
sessions require explicit saves to configure the set of files that belong in it.
See the changelog below for details of other changes and bug fixes that are
included in this release.
44th Alpha Release
This is a minor bug fix release that includes a number of fixes for when running on Linux under GTK.
Packt Publishing (the publisher of the wxPython Cookbook) is currently accepting input for new ideas for Python programming books that you would like to see published. New ideas can be submitted through an open Google Moderator site that has been set up to allow anyone to submit new ideas and vote on existing ones posted by others. This is a good and simple opportunity to have your voice heard on what kind of topic(s) Packt should cover in their future Python books.
Quoted information from Packt:
Let us know if there are any areas of Python which you think would make a great book.
The books may be about using Python with certain tools, frameworks, or just doing cool things with pure Python programming.
If there is an area of Python that you love, or that you want to learn about, let us know and we could create a book all about it!
To see what books Python Packt already has to offer, take a look at our online bookstore: http://www.packtpub.com/books/python
As a quick bugfix release for some issues found in the initial release.
Would like to announce the release of a new plugin "PyStudio" for
Editra that is targeted at Python developers.
In its initial release this plugin integrates the following extended
Python development features into Editra.
This plugin is compatible with Editra 0.6.48 and later.
Where to get it:
This release contains some notable improvements to the Python autocompletion support. It is more accurate and capable of producing results under more scenarios then before. These improvements also extend to the the calltip support.
Big change in source distributions in this release as well. The primary launch script is now all lower case. So where as before you would run 'Editra' it is now standardized on 'editra' to fix a number of long running issues and confusion with the script that is installed by the wxPython tools package.
