Since I continue to get lots of email and bug reports about the font dialog not working when running Editra on OSX 10.6 I thought it necessary to post about this again as this is a known issue.
The issue with the Font dialog is an upstream issue with wxWidgets 2.8.10, the issue has been fixed for 2.8.11 and once its out I will rebuild Editra with it and the issue will be resolved.
Important bug fix release to fix a critical regression with handling of files that have BOM characters in them. All users of release 0.5 should quickly update to this release as the bug could lead to data loss.NEW: [features/improvements]
There is a critical regression in the handling of files with UTF BOM markings in them in release 0.5 that can result in data loss. This bug has been corrected and I will be trying to release an update this Wednesday evening that contains this update after I finish reviewing the rest of the code changes in the file handling.
This release contains a large number of important bug fixes. Due to various outside issues that have limited my development time the last few months I have decided to change the focus to bug fixes for this release and most of the features I had slated for 0.5 have been pushed back to the later 0.5 series releases in order focus on stability for 0.5.NEW: [features/enhancements]
In the next week I will be cleaning community board database to delete inactive users. If you have an account in the forum and have not logged into it in the last year and don't have any posts it will be deleted. If you simply go to the community page and log in and then leave your account will not be deleted.
This is to remove what I suspect are a number of bot created accounts from the database. If your account is deleted you can always sign up again.Thank you, The Management
