This version includes a new version of the Launch plugin that now supports all file types recognized by Editra and will automatically support all future filetypes and filetypes added by extensions. It also fixes a handful of other minor issues as well. Note however that due to the framework changes any Launch settings from previous versions will be lost with this upgrade as the underlying data model has changed.
There has also been a number of API extensions and bug fixes during this release, see the changelog below for more details about the changes in this release.NEW: [features/enhancements]
This is a quick bug fix for a critical issue that could cause Editra to not be able to properly start again after part of the profile settings became corrupted. If you were affected by this in the previous release this release will fix the issue. The other workaround is to delete your Editra user profile from the configuration directory and restarting Editra.NEW: [features/enhancements]

This is the first release of the 0.6 series and is the first release of Editra to officially support Python 2.7. There have been a fair number of bug fixes since the last release to further improve the stability of the editor. As a special notice there was a bug in the auto-updater from the last release that will prevent version 0.5.99 from detecting there is a new release so a manual download and install of this version will be required for users of version 0.5.99.NEW: [features/enhancements]
