As many may have noticed the site has become very slow and has been down from time to time in an increasing fashion over the last year. This is due to an ever increasing amount of traffic that is coming to the site. The increased traffic is a good thing but on the negative it makes the site nearly impossible to use on busy days.
For these reasons I am hoping to get some help to raise some funding to move the site to a vps from the current shared server. A vps is unfortunately a little more money than I feel comfortably forking out for on my own so before making this move I would like to raise about 2 years of server fees put away before hand. This means I would like to try and raise about $1200 to help keep the project running smoothly for the next two years.
Any support that can be provided would be much appreciated and would further go to improve the project.
Had planned to wait till 0.5 was ready before doing another release but there have been too many good enhancements added due to all the great patches submitted during this cycle to wait for the last push to 0.5 to complete before releasing.
Some of the main new features include buffer synchronization with the codebrowserplugin, completely re-worked vi emulation support, position history, and clipboard ring. See below for more detailed list of changes.NEW: [features/improvements]
The latest version of the Projects plugin is now available. This is another quick bug fix release to fix a critical bug on Windows. This bug would cause a crash when right clicking to open the source control menu in the projects tree. Besides this fix there is a minor fix for unicode handling in the Mercurial history log feature.
Downloads available in the Plugin manager and all the other usual places.
Quick bug fix release for settings not being able to be saved on a new install. This must have been a fairly long standing bug, it didn't affect upgrade installs just fresh installs that did not have an existing configuration.BUG FIXES:
This release includes some important bug fixes and performance improvements for when loading large files (10MB+). In addition to this there are some new and improved vi commands as well as some alternate default key binding profiles. Hopefully this will be the last release of the 0.4 series as things are shaping up for the 0.5 development cycle. For further details on this release please review the following release notes.
Please also note that if you are using the Projects plugin that you wil also need to update it to the newly released 1.0 version due to some api changes that make 0.9 incompatible with this release of Editra.NEW: [features/improvments]
There was a small bug that many seem to have found when clicking on the configuration button for the Launch plugin for the current release. This is a harmless error that has already been corrected. It results from having an empty configuration that was not properly pre-loaded on new installs when accessing the configuration from the new plugin manager dialog.
The work around for the current release is very simple:
A new release will be out soon that includes the fixed version of that plugin.
This release fixes a handful of important bugs and new features. The Plugin Manager dialog has been completely reworked. Configuration options for plugins that provide them are now available in the dialog as well as better error reporting for plugins that could not properly be loaded.
File session support has also been improved to allow for saving and loading of multiple custom sessions. Due to format changes the upgrade will require any session from previous installations to be overwritten.NEW: [features/enhancments]
When an older version of Editra on OSX (< 0.4.40) detects an update during startup it can cause the program to lockup when the update window is shown. This has been fixed in newer releases, if you are or have experienced this issue during the program startup it can be fixed by simply downloading and installing the latest release version from the Downloads Page.
This release contains a large number of bug fixes and improvements. Most notably there has been a fair amount of work done on the autocompletions support. All file types now have support for some basic word completion help. HTML and XML now have support for smart input assistance and completion tips.NEW: [features/improvments]
