Software Update: CudaText 1.174.0

Spread the love

Version 1.174.0 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 1.171.0 looks like this:

Changes in CudaText version 1.174.0:

  • Change: simplified app icon
  • Add: ui-tabs render colored circle also for externally modified/deleted files
  • Add: Windows: normalize case of filenames on opening
  • Add: if “ui_esc_close”:true, and Esc is pressed to ‘cancel selection’, don’t quit but perform the command
  • Add: “underline_color_files” must support ‘rgb(10 20 30 / 50%)’
  • Add: file-flag “plugin_disabled” in plugin’s folder – disables loading of plugin
  • Add: toolbar ‘pressed’ states react fast to: buttons pressing, ui-tab switching
  • Add: support Python 3.11
  • Fix: regression in 1.173 – tree-helpers don’t work for lite lexers
  • Fix: bug in calculating text-pos from mouse-pos for proportional fonts
  • Fix: “autocomplete_autoshow_chars”:2 – a) must not fire event if ui-tab is quickly switched; b) value 2 didn’t work with 3 typed characters
  • Fix: bad plugin’s editor scrollbar with “micromap_on_scrollbar”:true

Changes in CudaText version 1.173.2:

  • Add: API for LSP plugin to render colored auto-completion listbox

  • Fix: lexer Markdown: fixed rules for backtick codeblocks, to not fail on empty line in block
