Major Update: 2014 v12.3

Postby Karlis » Fri Jun 27, 2014 2:54 pm

You may have noticed that we had no updates for quite a while. This is because instead of releasing multiple smaller updates over the year, we decided to batch the jobs and release one bigger update. The time saved on compiling multiple minor update releases was invested in fixing more things instead.

This is a big big update, but it is not an upgrade, it is free for all v2014 users.

Here is what has changed:

* Updated Chrome preview version
* Fixed various errors and software exceptions
* Ability to cancel snippets with input boxes
* Fixed JS and PHP sample snippets
* Fixed the disappearance of macros
* Various SQL panel fixes
* Improved CSS validator
* Improved refresh + code/preview synch
* Fixed visual TD tag matching
* Updated JavaScript libraries
* F5 now works in preview window
* Fixed bug where program froze on encountering links that start with //
* Improved HTML auto complete
* Special Characters form fixes
* Safe FTP upload mode now preserves permissions
* Improved French localization
* Improved regular expression search
* Improved code explorer
* Improved block comments insertion
* JS checker now works in .JS files
* Diff now works with unsaved and FTP files
* Leading and trailing spaces are now preserved in snippets
* Fixed memory leak in color picker
* Fixed PHP formatter bugs
* SQL browser updated, added basic actions - paste, copy, cut, select all, undo, redo
* Updated inspector number editor to better support decimals
* Now the last created project is auto selected
* Strange characters with Alt + arrow
* Fixed bug - when double-clicking on TODO category name
* Fixed bug - adding @import statement to beginning of HTML when formatting font of selector in STYLE block
* Multiple PHP debugger fixes
* Improved PHP heredoc and nowdoc
* Other minor fixes

We do not want our servers to be overloaded, this why "check for updates" for most users shows the new version only a few days after the software is released. This way it does not happen that everybody updates at once.

There's additional update online now (12.3.0.152) that fixes a problem with synchronization introduced by the previous update, so if you have a problem with project to FTP synchronization then make sure to get the newest one.

thanks for the update.

One issue - this new version will not run with WINE on a Linux system (Linux Mint 17 LTS 64bit).

More and more people & customers have dropped Windows XP, and 8.1 for Linux. I guess if you need to learn a new system then now is a good time to jump from Windows into Linux.

Over the past few weeks I have seen old XP machine being change to run Linux mint using the xfce desktop - which makes a lot of saving for companies.
I think the trend to drop MS products will continue over the next few years with free software, but companies like yours who create a Linux version of there products have also found an advantage as you know how to use your products.

One example comes to mind is UltraEditor which now has a Linux version of their software making it easier for the end user.

I find myself using Linux more than Windows these days. I know in the UK, many Schools are now moving from MS to Linux to save monies on their systems and the same is happening in the business world.

My questions are;

Short term - Can you make WeBuilder work with Linux with WINE installed?

Long term - Linux versions of your products - maybe with a licence so you can use both versions at once across both Linux and MS platforms?

We're not considering Linux versions at the moment. What error do you get on Wine?

Sure, that would help. Especially the 2nd tab of the crash window.
