Spread the love

Version 5.2.3 of SciTE has been released. Scintilla Text Editor is an open source and cross platform text editor. It uses the open source Scintilla Text Editor library, which is from the same creators. This library is also used by other programs, including Notepad++. Downloads are available for Windows and Linux, and a commercial version for macOS can be found in Apple’s app store. In addition, there is a standalone executable that can be conveniently carried on a USB stick. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Release 5.2.3

  • Duplicate APIs to support 64-bit document positions on Win32: SCI_GETTEXTRANGEFULL, SCI_FINDTEXTFULL, and SCI_FORMATRANGEFULL. This adds new types to Scintilla.iface which may impact downstream projects. Applications should move to these APIs from their predecessors as they will be deprecated.
  • Improve performance of SCI_FOLDALL(SC_FOLDACTION_EXPAND) by not lexing whole document as it does not depend on folding structure.
  • Fix partial updates and non-responsive scroll bars on Xorg. This defers scroll bar changes to an idle task so could affect applications that depend on the scroll position being updated. Bug #2322Bug #2196Bug #2312
  • Fix problem with horizontally inverted glyphs with buffered drawing and WS_EX_LAYOUTRTL set on Win32 GDI. Feature #1435
  • Fix ARM64 builds with Visual C++ due to unsupported CETCOMPAT flag. Bug #2324
  • On Cocoa, place autocompletion lists and calltips on a higher window level so they can be seen when invoked from a modal dialog. Bug #2329
  • For Qt 6, fix “modified” signal when text is null but length non-0. Bug #2328
  • Fix pink selection background when printing by making it completely transparent.
