Fixes, Features, and Enhancements in SlickEdit 2014 (19.0.2) RC 1
  • Added "Look in zip/word/excel files" check box to Find in Files Tab of Find and Replace tool window. Multi-file find now supports searching word and excel files. See on-line help for details.
  • Changed :bnext and :bprevious VIM EX commands to do next/prev buffer by default in one file per window mode. Added new def_vi_bnext which can be 'b', 'w', or 't' which corresponds to buffer, window, or tab (next_buffer, next_window, next_buff_tab). This def var is only supposed when in one file per window mode.
  • Fixed bug where using the document tab context menu item "Add to project" didn't work if the filename contains spaces.
  • Fixed problem in Perl parsing/color coding that would mistake a dictionary key called 'format' with a format statement, and drop in a spurious embedded section.
  • Fix for not being able to save customized project templates.
  • Fix for one place in VIM emulation where command mode keys could be grouped together into a single undo block.
  • Fixed stack that could occur when typing in an enum in Java mode.
  • Fix bug where a feature, like Go To Reference or Find, activates a tool-window to show results (e.g. References, Search Results), but restores all tabs in the tabgroup. This made it cumbersome because you had to Hide each tool-window to dismiss the tabgroup showing the results. Note that activating a tool-window via command, like activate_references or activate_search, will continue to restore the entire tabgroup.
  • Fixed bug where tab settings were not correctly set for buffers with XML or HTML based languages.
  • Fixed bug where showing tag Preview or References tool-window could change active editor window's tab settings.
  • Fixed 'o' command in VIM emulation so the cursor is put in the column calculated by SmartIndent if SmartIndent is enabled.
  • Make sure we use the current window when adding a new annotation and correct some spacing issues on the New Annotation form.
  • Make sure to save option for mapping extensionless files.
  • Fix for Slick-C stack if you pressed an unbound key in diff mode.
  • Fix for CVS GUI Update giving incorrect output.
  • Fix issue that can keep Perforce support from working depending on shell.
  • Fix bug in C++ context tagging when a template class is specifically imported.
  • Fixes for exclusions working properly for Tag Files dialog, Project Properties, and else where.
  • Fix for isdirectory() handling smb:// properly on Ubuntu. Fix for VIM appending to macro recording with 'q'.
  • Fix color coding for C-style hex integer literals in Perl.
  • Add code to make sure that the current configuration is passed along to vsbuild when doing a build-first operation, such as prior to starting a debugging run on a GNU project.
  • Fix bug where C/C++ preprocessing dialog would lose track of imported defines.
  • Fix import of language aliases.
  • Fix bug in calculation of applicable tag files for files that do not have any support for tagging operations. As a side-effect, this also fixes a the behavior of the Find Symbol tool window for such files.
  • Fix macro recording issue with Replace and List replaced matches option.
  • Fix bug handling C++ namespace aliases in context tagging.
  • Fix bug in re-toggle command that would prevent toggling with Perl or Wildcard regex syntax.
  • Fix symbol coloring bug where we did not handle local variable scoping correctly and another bug where we incorrectly matched a class function definition as a Global Function.
  • Fixed bug where a few help items with '::' in them didn't work due to parsing.
  • Fix bug parsing Perl expression with left shift operator following a hexidecimal number (was being interpreted as a here document).
  • Fix for v19.x bug where completion on UNC path could cause crash if you had a very large number of UNC names (more that 16k of data).
  • Fix bug that gave Slick-C stack if you tried to check out from Browse Repository dialog.
  • Not all fixes have been listed.
    Fixes, Features, and Enhancements in SlickEdit 2014 (19.0.1)

      • Multi-file search supports GVFS samba file specs.
      • Multi-file diff supports GVFS samba file specs.
      • Projects don't support GVFS samba file specs. Projects can never fully support GVFS samba file specs
                      because compiler tools will likely never support GVFS samba file specs.
      • Open tool window only supports opening GVFS samba file specs. Change directory trips
                      up the open tool window badly. This will be improved in a later release.
      • Open dialog doesn't support GVFS samba file specs.

    • Fix Slick-C stack in list-tags when the symbol name contains a minus sign.

    • Fix timing sensitive Slick-C stack in Class tool window.
