Discussion in 'Python' started by Edward K. Ream, Oct 3, 2003.

  1. Leo 4.0 beta 2 is now available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/leo/

    This is the second public release of Leo 4.0. There are no known serious
    bugs
    in this version of Leo. Version 4.0 is the culmination of over a year of
    collaborative design work and several months of actual implementation.

    4.0 introduces new file formats. Please make full backups of important
    files.

    Highlights of 4.0 beta 2
    ------------------------
    * Fixed several bugs:
    - Fixed problems with reading and writing 4.0 derived files.
    - Fixed several Unicode-related bugs.
    - Fixed a crasher in the Go To Line Number command.
    - Fixed a problem with Importing Python files.
    * Important improvements:
    - Added allow_clone_drags setting that allows Leo to be used with Aqua.
    - When running Python 2.3 Leo can now create window icons without
    third-party packages.
    - The usual minor improvements and bug fixes.

    Highlights of 4.0 beta 1
    ------------------------
    * Improved and simplified format of derived files.
    - Eliminated child indices, extraneous blank lines and @body sentinels.
    - Eliminated @node sentinels that indicate outline structure.
    - New @nl and @nonl sentinels indicate where newlines are and aren't.
    - These changes largely eliminate unwanted cvs conflicts.
    * Greatly improved error handling.
    - Reading derived files _never_ alters outline structure or links.
    - Read errors leave the outline completely unchanged.
    - Broken clone links are gone forever.
    - As a result, using 4.0 is much safer than all previous versions.
    * Full compatibility will previous versions of Leo.
    - Leo reads all derived files properly, regardless of version.
    - Leo writes new-format derived files by default, and this default may be
    changed.
    * New commands:
    - Write 3.x Derived File and Write 4.x Derived File commands.
    - Import Derived File command.
    - Clear Recent Files command.
    * Several new plugins.
