We now have Featherpad 0.9.0 in the test repo.

New in this release (among other things):

● The default highlighter is always enabled for normal texts.
● The search bar is equipped with a tab-specific history popup.
● Problems in text tabulation are fixed and an option is added for text tab size in terms of spaces.
● "To Upper Case" and "To Lower Case" are added as menu-items with customizable shortcuts.
● Shortcuts are added for moving line(s) upward and downward.
● The useless option for restoring recent files is changed to an option for restoring the last window files.
● The previously missing overwrite mode is added. It is toggled by pressing the Insert key.
● An option is added for saving unmodified files (useful under some circumstances).
● An option is added for closing a window on closing its last tab.
● The window title is set to the tab path.
● Command-line options are added for cursor position.
● Thick text cursor is supported.
● An option is added to not permit opening of non-text files.
● The number of pages is added to tab/side-item context menu as a label.
● A regression is fixed in recognizing special files (like ".bashrc").
● The line numbers strip is improved and the current line highlighter is made much milder.
● Turkish and German translations are added and other translations are made better.

Very cool, thanks!

Just tested it.

I have a problem with the search function of that version:

The "Ctrl+f" key kombination no longer makes the mouse cursor jump into the newly opened search window bar. So when you type in the search string, you type it into nowhere.

Can anyone reproduce that?


Greetings, and have a nice weekend, Joe

Featherpad has been updated to the latest 0.9.1 release in the test repo.

Changes include:

● The window title is set to the whole file path, including the file name.
● The line number strip is enhanced.
● Tab switch shortcuts can be customized now.
● The warning bar is shown as a translucent layer over the tab widget with animation.
● A shortcut is added for activating the last active tab.
● "gio" is tried first for opening hyperlinks because Qt may resort to "xdg-open", which isn't always a good choice.
● A workaround is added for a new bug in KDE's file dialog.
● Compilation without X11 is possible with qmake WITHOUT_X11=YES. Also, Haiku OS is supported.
● Several fixes and improvements.

Do you can search and search/replace by regexp in featherpad like in gedit?

Seems like not?
