On Feb. 15, Geany 0.16 has been released. This source code editor is getting more and more complex and this new version introduces some new features and a lot of bugfixes. I now use it for all my C projects because it is very lightweight, easy to use, has syntax-coloring and completion.
I recently packaged this new version of Geany for Ubuntu and it can be downloaded from my PPA (personal package archive): https://launchpad.net/~weboide/+archive/ppa
You can also download the source code directly from http://www.geany.org/.
Here are the release notes (source):
Bug fixes: * Fix indenting for Tabs & Spaces mode when inserting snippets. * Fix snippets and smart indent using too much indentation when the line contains whitespace after non-whitespace characters (#2215044). * Fix segfault when showing Find in Files dialog when no documents are open (#2228544). * Fix not switching to 2nd last used document when the last used document has been closed (#1945162). General: * Group child tags by their parents in the symbol list for C-like filetypes, Python, Conf (thanks to Conrad Steenberg). * Use a tree for the Documents sidebar, grouped by path. * Add 'Tools->Configuration Files' menu with items to open filetype_extensions.conf and ignore.tags. These files are also reloaded automatically when saved. * Change configuration directory path to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/geany (most often this is ~/.config/geany). * Allow to specify files on the command line and from remote instances to be URIs (local and with GIO also remote URIs). * Increase minimum required GTK version to 2.8. Prefs: * Add Project Indentation prefs, which override the Editor Preferences dialog options. For new projects, these default to the editor indent prefs. * Add an interface pref for whether to hide additional widgets when double-clicking on document notebook tabs (off by default). * Add a preference to invert all colours for syntax highlighting. * Add a hidden preference "allow_always_save" to make the Save buttons and menu items always sensitive. Interface: * Rework the toolbar: now all elements can be added/removed/reordered using a simple XML file. * Add new toolbar buttons for Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Preferences, Close All and Build (including a submenu for Make actions). * Add a progressbar widget to the statusbar to show progress for time consuming actions. Editor: * Make Ctrl-click go to matching brace if there's no current word. * Make Shift+Mouse wheel scroll the editor view horizontally. * Make the 'Mark' button for Find highlight the results with rounded boxes instead of marking the whole line. * Add auto-closing of braces, brackets and quotes (Guillaume de Rorthais). * Support multiple wildcards in Snippets (Thomas Martitz). Filetypes: * Add new filetypes Ada, CMake, Matlab, NSIS, Vala and YAML. * Update HTML character entities (thanks to Tyler D'Agosta). * Parse restructuredText sections in the order of first-used underline character, which can now be any punctuation character (as per the spec). * Remove GTK global tags, replace them with C (C99) tags. The GTK tags file is still available for download on the website. * Minor improvements for filetypes CSS, Fortran, FreeBasic, HTML, Tcl and Vala. Windows: * Improve tab close icon size. * Changes to the Windows installer: - The full installer now includes the GTK 2.14 runtime environment. - Register ".geany" as Geany Project File extension. - Install GTK translation files only if installation of translation files were requested (saves about 22 MB otherwise). - Support silent installations. Plugins: * Add Split Window 'Split Vertically' command (thanks to Moritz Barsnick). * Make Version Diff plugin set the indent type for diffs based on the current file's indent type. * Minor improvements to the filebrowser plugin Plugin API: * Generate plugin API header geanyfunctions.h containing macros to avoid having to type the function pointer names manually. * Deprecate pluginmacros.h in favour of geanyfunctions.h. * Add "editor-notify" to the plugin API. * Add new plugin symbol plugin_help() which is called by Geany when the plugin should show its documentation (if any, symbol is optional). Documentation: * Update Scintilla regular expression info for v1.77 (character classes, ASCII escaping, character sets containing square brackets peculiarities). Adapted from SciTE doc. Internationalisation: * Updated translations: bg, ca, cs, de, en_GB, fr, hu, it, ja, pt_BR, sv, ru, tr, vi, zh_CN
