-Better position detection in Cursor/Preview Synchronization;

To participate in Beta testing you need to contact us via our support website http://www.blumentals.net/support/wizard.php We will provide you with all the details.

How can I contribute when using Beta version?
* It is important that you report any newly introduced bugs via our support website (http://www.blumentals.net/support/wizard.php) mentioning that you are using Beta version.
* Beta possibly will contain bugs and each bug found is a success if you report it to us.
* Please DO report ONLY bugs, errors and obvious misbehaviour (send these to us).
* Please DO NOT report missing features or ask "why my suggestion was not included". The feature list is still open, there are lots of things we are planning to improve later on.

* We have very limited resources and support staff is overloaded already. We will appreciate if you give precise and detailed problem reports, or have anything else important to share.
* If you have any questions about the functionality of the new features, please ask them here, so others can benefit from the replies.

Thank you!

Cool, the Cursor/Preview Synchronization seems much more responsive.

If I find typos in the help manual or something that's not a bug but might be improved, should I report them? if so, where?

Hi,

Syntax colour problems when horizontal scrolling is still present.
Yes, actually it seems the same problems were also in version 2010. Maybe now they are more visible. We will look for solution.
Looks like 2010 & 2011 beta must be using the same location for settings, oh dear!
Yes, most settings are stored in registry, which is used by 2011 and older versions.
Code collapse: Does not work with new HTML code, e.g. Header, Nav, Section, Article and Aside
This is not a bug, I guess. I myself tend to agree, at least some of these could be added to the code collapse. I will add this to our to-do list.
Frameworks: How can I add Frameworks? e.g. Codeigniter, would love to get support for this, but there are no docs or anything.
With next update will come Symfony, Yii, Codeigniter. You can ask for more, but no promise these will be added ;)
Tools / Compare with : Just get a blank dialog up, what's this suppose to do? :)
Should not happen. Are you really using Beta 3? What are the steps to reproduce?
File explorer: Sometimes the scroll bar just vanishes, resizing the "File Explorer" brings it back, but it's annoying (Can't post screen shot)
Thanks, will write this down.
If I find typos in the help manual or something that's not a bug but might be improved, should I report them? if so, where?
Please send these to the support: http://www.blumentals.net/support/wizard.php

kon ni chi wa, odenky des ka?

Likewise here with the html5 set as primary. Didn't like the template for the html5 listed and replaced it with one that I made.

html5 makes web pages a 'living document' and such is the case with the support for html5 not only with WB 2011 but the browsers that support html5 which can be easily checked

http://www.html5test.com/

for example: (scores out of 300)

FF 4.0.1 - 240
FF 5.0ß2 - 240
FF 7.0a1 - 240
Google Chrome - 13.0.772.0 - 291

I posted, in this forum, the latest W3C draft (May 27, 2011) for the html5 specs

Hi,

After, spending a considerable amount of time(4hrs.) troubleshooting an error, I got somewhat upset as WB2011 should have picked up these errors BUT it didn't. Generally when there is a syntax, typo, with respect to elements(tags) the WB 2011 will pick it up in "red" which it does BUT in this case it did not.
Yes, but this works the same as it did in version 2010. I do not think this can be considered as bug, although I can agree that it would be nice if it worked better.
* Clicking on the app icon occasionally ran the installer instead of starting the app even though it was already installed (only on the Windows 7 machine)
This can not be true. Unless you have the installation file on your computer and some short-cut points to it.
* Often get 'JavaScript error on line 1' bug, even when the file does not have any javascript code in it at all. This has happened on both my PCs.
Thanks, we shall fix this.
* Minor thing, but the About screen copyright date goes to 2010 when I guess it should be 2011.
Thanks, we shall fix this.
* The bundled CSS reference file covers CSS1, looks like it was updated in 1997 - pretty much useless. It should be updated or removed.
Currently we will leave the old reference, but we plan to do something about it in future.
* My default document type is set as HTML5, but if I do 'File New > HTML' it shows me the XHTML template instead.
You can change the default specification under Preferences; Language Options; HTML
* The syntax colour highlighting has been buggy/broken. I notice it particularly a lot in the closing tags of XML files, but present in ASP, PHP and HTML files too.
Yes, this is a known problem. We will try to find a solution.
compression in WBß still retains the terminal ; (ie)
Sorry, I could not reply earlier. But the updated version will come with next update of 2011. It will work as it should.

Kind regards,
Gatis

I am however convinced that 'Pandora's Box' has been opened with WB 2011 and it's claim to support html5.

I am waiting for a tsunami.

Hi kfury77,

As far as I know Karlis plans to publish a Release candidate in nearest time, and then a bit later the official version will be released.
