New feature testing Day 3: Project Support Features
« on: September 16, 2021, 05:16:23 pm »
    Each day we are going to post a new feature in SlickEdit 2021 to focus on for a few minutes and try out.

    Today's focus is on new Project Support featuers. You can see more details on the new features in the readme (Help > About Slickedit... > Release Notes). Bug reports are great feedback, we will fix what we can. But any feedback is helpful, even if as simple as “looks good” to “this is useless, but thanks anyway”.

    • Enhanced wildcard support
      • Improved Visual Studio wildcard project support (i.e. csproj). Now automatically updates Project tool window, tag file, and file list in the background. No need to explicitly Refresh the Project tool window and/or rebuild the tag file.
      • When adding new files to the project, no explicit filenames are added to the project if they match existing wildcards.
        Improved updating when new files matching wildcards are added while outside of SlickEdit.
      • The wildcard cache is saved when you close the workspace and restored when you open the workspace. For large wildcard projects, this can significantly reduce startup time when restoring the Project tool window. After opening the workspace, the wildcards are updated in the background.
      • Wildcards are updated in the background except when the wildcard cache is empty.

    • Improved Quick-Start project wizard
      • Quick-Start configuration lets you directly open projects or workspaces from other tools.
      • Project > Open Workspace... adds a new smart dialog to help you discover that SlickEdit can open projects and workspaces from other tools.

    • Improved New Project dialog
      • Project > New... dialog is now resizable.
      • Project > New... dialog adds ability to directly add a tree of source files, recursively or as a wildcard.
      • Project > New... will set the project working directory if the source tree added differs from the project directory.
