Not far to go

PN2 0.4 (miles) is almost ready for release - I would expect to release in the next week. I intend to ask the usual group of beta testers to give it a try first and see what they think.

Here's a quick list of what's in (from the top of my head):

  • Tool output parsing for a number of built-in types.
  • Output parsing for user-defined output strings.
  • Matched output jumps to the correct position in the correct file when clicked.
  • Tool editor dialog re-designed (a bit)
  • Docking global output window.
  • Clipboard Swap (Ctrl-Shift-C) - paste clipboard into selection and place selection on the clipboard.
  • Options dialog more keyboard accessible.
  • Maximise on opening.
  • PN remembers its window positioning between loads.
  • Perl scheme.
  • Better pascal scheme.
  • Modula-2 scheme.
  • Folding keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl-Alt-+ Expand All, Ctrl-Alt-- Collapse All, Ctrl+* toggle current fold block
  • Copy as RTF and export RTF.

The roadmap has been changed slightly: Export for other filetypes has been moved back to Mingus (0.5) as has better control over the printing mechanism. After that, all features in the Miles roadmap entry have now been implemented - only testing remains.

I just found out that GCC can optionally emit a column number in a warning / error message:

keybd.c:352:12: warning: extra tokens at end of #endif directive

The second number is the column.
