    presents, just donate to SPE and receive the manual in your mailbox ;-)

    There are so many changes and fixes. The new cool features not to be
    missed are the realtime error underlinging and the tooltips for the
    file tabs, which gives you a preview of the file by the docstring.

    Mac, the click inside selection crash.

    So just open the package and discover the present...
