RText 2.0.3 Released

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

RText 2.0.3 was just released on SourceForge!  It’s based off of the recent 2.0.3 release of RSyntaxTextArea.  Here’s what’s new:

  • Added code folding for several languages, including C, C++, Java, Perl, XML, Groovy, C#, JavaScript, MXML, CSS and LaTeX.
  • Dockable window panels are now collapsible, allowing you to allot more screen real estate to the editors when necessary.
  • Added LaTeX syntax highlighting and code folding.
  • Added DTD syntax highlighting.
  • Added “Go to Member” shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+O) similar to Eclipse. Currently only for Java, JavaScript, and XML.
  • The Source Browser’s tree view of source code is now sortable.
  • License changed to modified BSD from GPL.  This allows folks to use pieces of RText without making their entire application GPL.

In short: code folding, more languages supported, and more liberal license.

Unfortunately, my MacBook is on the fritz, so I can’t create a Mac app bundle at the moment.  As soon as I can get this resolved, a Mac bundle will get uploaded to SourceForge.  Until then, folks on OS X can use the *nix bundle if necessary (it’s just a gzipped install).
