For example, "g++ -fdiagnostics-color=always myfile.cpp" or "clang++ -fdiagnostics-color=always myfile.cpp" will display colored error messages in the Build window. Cursor movement and non-color escape sequences are not supported. For Unix and macOS, using SoftWrap in the Build Window disables support for bold, italics, and underline.
       
  • General
    • Edit window context menu now has XML Validate and XML Check Well-Formedness menu items.
