What's new in this version:

  • Python API implemented!
  • Python console added: default hotkey is Ctrl+tilde.
  • Dialog "Tools -- New plugin".
  • Program must be installed not to "Program Files". Reason: Py-plugins are created inside program subfolder "Py".
  • Distro file increased by 5 Mb because of Py API. You can still delete Py files and folders: DLLs\, Py\, python*.*, msvc*.dll (maybe needed to change *.manifest then, it refers to msvc*.dll). To just disable Py-engine: delete python*.dll.
  • Renamed menu "Run" to "Tools"
  • Output panel: "Command list" hotkey works, last tab remembered
  • Improved lexer Tcl (tree, strings)
  • Fixes
