          Release Notes: This version is mainly a bugfix and feature consolidation release. Besides many bugfixes, it brings two major improvements: wider language support for syntax highlighting and a more native build for OS X. The Charcoal highlighting engine was extended to read case-insensitive grammars, and adds supports for the following languages: Actionscript 3, haXe, CSS2, Tex/LaTex, and SQL. For the haXe language, there is a special feature included: code browsing. To open up the code browser, go to the "View" menu.

            Release Notes: This version consolidates all elements of the user interface. The highlighting engine was rewritten completely. The new highlighter is called "charcoal" and allows users to specify their own grammar and theme files written in JavaScript. Some popular themes like "Ruby Blue" and "Ryan Light" are included. The rest of the UI got a major overhaul. Subpixel anti-aliasing is now supported for both the terminal and the editor widget. Input context support to enter accents and diacritics has been added. The terminal has been reworked and now supports much better ncurses based applications.
