Version 2006 Released

Postby Karlis » Fri Mar 03, 2006 3:19 am

Today is a great day 8)

WeBuilder 2006, HTMLPad 2006 Pro, Rapid CSS 2006 and Rapid PHP 2006 are officially released. The quality status is - "release candidate", which means that there might be some tiny problems, but the overall quality is somewhat like final release.

What's new?

We have been working on this upgrade for about 7 months, over 150 things were fixed, improved or added, major new features include:
* UTF-8 support
* Bracket highlighting
* Code collapse (experimental feature, will be improved in the future)
* Improved bookmarking (bookmark toggle, next/prev navigation and more)
* Block select
* Built-in FireFox preview
* New CSS specification definitions
* CSS checker
* CSS box property wizard
* Improved Auto Complete
* Improved Code Explorer
* Improved Inspector
* Improved FTP and project publishing
* Improved Search and Replace, added Find All
* SQL Explorer (WeBuilder and Rapid PHP only)
* SQL syntax highlighting (WeBuilder and Rapid PHP only)
* PHP function auto complete (WeBuilder and Rapid PHP only)
* Settings export feature (easily allows to export registry settings to a file)
there are many more... actually the major part consists of tiny bits that each made the software just a little more convenient.

Although we really tried, there was not enough time to implement all of your suggestions, so many are still in the list and we will try to add new features gradually during this year.

If we have missed something that is *extremely* important to you and many other users, please let me know, probably we can give it a priority and add that in one of updates.

Upgrading

Upgrade options for previous version owners are available on the website.

Customers who ordered previous version within Dec 2005 - Mar 2006 are eligible for a free upgrade. Details will be sent via e-mail by the end of March. Or if you do not want to wait, you can use our online Lost Key Recovery form. Please do not inquire about this before March 31.

Your comments are welcome

Your feature suggestions and support requests are very welcome (please post them in appropriate forums, this one is for announcements).

Plan for the future

1) Next few days: Release a very minor update that introduces some minor fixes.
2) Next week: Update the web site with information about the new features and add some new screenshots
3) Next month: Release version 7.1 with some fixes (if problems will be found) and some additional new features. After that I hope to release one major update each or every two months.

First update released already - 7.0.0.63.

* Fixed screen "jumping" behavior while editing long lines.
* Fixed php variable auto-complete selection
* Fixed php function auto complete (very minor)

If you did not notice any of these problems you may want not to spend your time on this tiny update... it is really very minor.
