Highly recommended download. I told you there'd be bugs in v1.12 :) Hopefully I've caught them all and there aren't any more major problems in this release.

This is just a bug fix release, no new features:

Version 1.13 (04 June 2010)

  • Numerous bug fixes (tagged with "(Bug fix 20100604)" in source code)
  • Bugfix: Since v1.12, choosing "Save" worked like "Save As"
  • Bugfix: Since v1.12, the statistics dialog didn't detect the filename or filesize
  • Bugfix: RTS*: Files were always marked as 'unsaved' even after saving
  • Bugfix: RTS: Closing an edited file incorrectly made a newly opened file 'unsaved'
  • Bugfix: RTS: Opening a file did not ask you to save the current file first

* RTS = Remember-to-save dialog, which asks if you want to save an unsaved file before closing it.

You can download STE from the download page.

I've found some more bugs in this one :(

I've fixed them in the copy I've got… but I'm not going to release the update yet because there's another feature I've half-finished that I'd rather do first… and release it all at once.

Here's the changelog for finished features of the next version so far:

  • Added: File chooser now allows you to filter STE and Text files
  • Bug fixes (Bug fix 20100605)
    • Bugfix: When closing a file the status bar said that it was closed "without saving", even if you did save first.
    • Bugfix: When you create a new document and save it, the program didn't remember the filepath and kept showing the "Save As" dialog to ask for a new one.
    • Bugfix: Filesize was still only working if you opened a file. Now it works for new documents as well.

Bug summary: Opening documents works fine, creating a new document causes the above-mentioned bugs.
Work around: Save your file (File>Save As), close it (File>Close), then open it again (File>Open).

And it's a good idea to get into the habit of saving anything that you'll only use with STE to use the "ste" extension, rather than the "txt" extension.

And a little teaser for the feature I'm working on right now: STE finally lets you customise it! :D1

I'm having too much fun working on this! :)

Okay, have just spent a few hours (ever since last post) trying to get this to work how I'd like. I give up :)

Have reverted most of my changes and the list of changes should now equal what I posted above. Will release it now and put STE away for a few days while I ask some people about the problems I'm having. It just refuses to do what I want it to do! :)

Well, nothing I mentioned here. It was the feature that I didn't mention (but posted a teaser about) that I had huge problems with. Got it working now though, plus more than I originally planned to do for this release :)
