Release Notes: After 16 development releases and 3 release candidates, Bluefish 2.0.0 is finally ready, and is considered the most stable and feature-rich Bluefish release. The editor itself is completely rewritten with much better syntax support, autocompletion support, in-line spell checking, and more, several new plugins are available, and many new tools have been added.
Release Notes: This release candidate has a lot of small bugfixes and some more translations.
Release Notes: This is the first release candidate for the 2.0.0 version. The number of changes compared to the last development release is rather small. The number of changes compared to 1.0.7, however, is huge. Many parts have been rewritten, and many new features have been added or have been improved.
Release Notes: This version includes a range of very small improvements, which makes it much more polished and almost ready to become the next stable release. One notable change is the syntax scanner, which is now almost two times faster. The language syntax definition files are also improved. Several more translations were completed, but there are still many incomplete translations compared to the stable releases.
Release Notes: This release has many small improvements and fixes such as better language syntax support and several completely finished translations, and it supports a native Windows build.
Release Notes: This release has two major new features. The first is inline spell checking, which is programming-language-aware. The second is a menubar for the snippets plugin, for those who liked the old custom menu more than the snippets sidebar. Next to the new features, there are many small improvements, bugfixes, and a speedup of the startup process. Only a few languages are up to date. Most translations need to be updated before a 2.0.0 release.
Release Notes: In Bluefish 1.3.5 the very long Edit menu is reduced, and a new menu Tools is introduced. Many translations still need to be updated for this change. A very important feature was added: Bluefish will now automatically recover modified documents that were not saved due to a process kill or crash. A new utility was added to quickly create columns from a list of text elements. Next to the larger changes 1.3.5 has various language definition improvements, a default MIME type for new documents, some small improvements for the autocompletion, and various small bugfixes and improvements.
Release Notes: This release has several new features such as remote file synchronization (upload or download), text zoom (Ctrl-mouse wheel), toggle comment (Shift-Ctrl-C), split line, join line, language-sensitive indenting, and more. The auto-completion popup has been refined. It is no longer an obtrusive popup, but very fast and intuitive. Tag auto-closing is also done with the auto-completion popup. Several important bugs have been resolved.
Release Notes: This release features major performance improvements and several new features. Both the start-time of bluefish and the performance while running have been improved. New features include visible spacing (which shows tabs, spaces, non-breaking spaces, etc.) and an optional character map plugin based on libgucharmap. Some serious issues in glib-2.16 were discovered when working with remote files, which may impact Bluefish stability.
Release Notes: The previous released featured a new editor widget, which was a bit unpolished. Now this widget is much more polished, is faster, and supports more languages. There are many bugs fixed and other improvements implemented. This release is much more suitable for day-to-day use. However, it is still an unstable release, so there are many unfinished features and missing translations.
