Spread the love

Version 1.171.0 of CudaText has been released. This open source and cross platform text editor is available for Windows, Linux, macOS, BSD and Solaris. It has extensive options which are of particular interest to software developers. It is developed in Object Pascal, starts quickly and through Python add-ons the functionality can be further extended. The program is under active development and new versions appear regularly. The changelog since version 1.169.2 looks like this:

Changes in version 1.171.0


  • When editing too long lines (2000+ chars), editor turns lexer off for a few seconds. That is to prevent caret rendering glitches on such lines. Option is added for this: “max_line_len_for_editing_keeping_lexer”.
  • Few APIs for LSP Client
  • Better calculate wrap positions for CJK text
  • Addon Manager: add option “Verify HTTPS certificates”
  • Option “renderer_anti_flicker” is now per-lexer (before it was global)


  • Option “renderer_anti_flicker”:20 cool regression in FindInFiles4 plugin’s UI
  • Default value of “key_left_right_wrap_with_carets” was not like default.json tells
  • In some cases, Delete/typing command with multi-carets places multi-carets wrong
  • Regression in 1.169.2: Emmet engine broken
  • Regression in 1.167: Down-arrow from long wrapped line, to the last short line
  • After mouse wheel zoomimg, scrollbar position becomes very incorrect
  • “mouse_wheel_zoom”:false -> Ctrl+wheel jumps to file beginning
  • Too wide combobox-arrow if UI scale is big

Changes in version 1.170.0


  • When file is deleted outside, show tab title in reddish color (theme color “tabs, special marks”)
  • Option “underline_color_files” must support modern variants of rgba() and hsla(); support color-angles in units deg/rad/grad/turn
  • Option “py_caret_slow”
  • Lexer HTML: highlight background of blocks


  • Bracket highlight is now performed near “on_caret_slow”, ie after a pause
  • Lexer CSS: don’t highlight entire color-function calls as single token: rgba(…), hsla(…) etc


  • Fold-ranges from command “fold selected lines” often worked wrong
  • Incorrect width of group of some ‘Latin extended’ chars
  • Addon Manager “Install from Git” ignored Git branch name on ‘clone’ action
  • Option “autocomplete_autoshow_chars” minor bug
