Some of the feature highlights are:
- Tabs have a context menu, with options to close the current tab, tabs to the right, or all other tabs. There is still no context menu for the sidebar, but it is on the todo list.
- Sub-word movement, for moving through WordsLikeThis and like_this_too. This is bound to Ctrl+Arrow keys on OS X, and Alt+Arrow keys on Windows and Linux.
- Windows and Linux can now switch to tabs by index, bound to Alt+<number>. On OS X the same thing can be done by Command+<number>. There's also a Switch File menu (under File), which contains a list of the different ways to switch between files, given there have been a few questions about this recently.
- Menu mnemonics are in, so you can press Alt+F,O to open, etc.
- Syntax definitions are loaded in the background. This improves startup time, as well as making Goto Anything smoother when previewing different types of files.
- There's a new setting, "draw_minimap_border", to do just that. The color of the border can be configured in the .tmTheme, as "minimapBorder".
- The Linux build has received several improvements: the mouse cursor changes based on context (i.e., resize handles, and an i-beam when over text), running via a symlink works as expected, and remote files (e.g., SSH via GVFS) are shown in dialogs and work with drag and drop.
There's still no auto-update yet, unfortunately, but I'll try to get Sparkle integrated for the next build on OS X. I tried to make it happen for this weeks release, but ran out of time after fighting with it this afternoon.
UserEcho is looking like a success, and is responsible for draw_minimap_border making it into this weeks version.
