Never mind, I've downloaded the trial and tried it =)

It works, except several things I've discovered:
1. It didn't find any compilers installed on my SuSE 10.1 (I do have, I know, believe me =)), so I had to define it by myself.
2. i thought I'll see antialiased fonts because I found "Font Support for Linux using Xft" in the list of new features. But I did not.
I suppose it's due to x86_64 platform, but I have all 32bit libraries installed, and all other 32bit applications such as firefox working well with AA fonts. Is there any way how I can fix it? Maybe I should check for some libraries or config files in my system or find a log file where slickedit will tell me what is wrong? Because these aliased fonts looking veeeery weird almost everywhere =(

Then I don't understand at all why this happens on such a popular distribution as OpenSuSE...

Also I found that russian letters in files are... not supported?
When I open files containing them, I see only "?" signs instead of right letters.
I selected right font that I know contains characters I need (Terminus, in unicode), and tried to open both UTF-8, CP1251 and KOI8 encodings of file itself and file/options/load setting, with no luck. I still see "?" signs instead of letters. And of course I can't write them.
Also I've tried other fonts, also with no luck.

My system's global encoding is UTF-8.
Does UTF-8 supported ok in slickedit? Because I see problems in build window, already discussed here:

./test.cpp: In function ‘int main(int, char**)’:
./test.cpp:10: error: ‘co’ was not declared in this scope

P.S.
I like Slickedit in general, but these font issues I'm experiencing is really weird =(
Starting from missing AA in all fonts, that makes it impossible to use most of them =)

I'm running Ubuntu 64, no issues with AA.  Works perfectly.

The gcc messages problem can be solved by adding LC_MESSAGES=en_US to your environment.

There does seem to been an anti-aliasing problem which so far has only happened so far on OpenSuSe 10.1.  Ask customer support for a fix.  The problem was that SlickEdit does not set the anti-aliasing property at all.  On almost all Xft installations, Xft defaults this property value to on.  The fix was to just turn it on.  Note that all versions of SlickEdit turn off anti-aliasing if xrender is not available.  This happens when displaying X application to almost any windows X server.  The only Windows X server I've see so far which support xrender is Humming Bird 8 (but you have to turn it on).  anti-aliasing is WAY TOO SLOOOOOW when xrender is not available.

Yes, I've contacted support and they've sent me fixed version of slickedit, now it's work well with AA.
Not with Unicode yet, but it's on the way.
