glogg version v1.0.0 released

5 year after the very first line of code was written, the first stable version is finally here! It has been a long road so far, but let’s hope glogg will be even more useful in the future.

This version introduces multiple files (in tabs) and a number of other improvements upon the old stable v0.9.2.

Main changes from development v0.99.1:

  • Window geometry is now stored and restored once again.
  • Added Firefox-like keyboard shortcuts for tabs.
  • Added a version checker that will inform the Windows user of new versions being available.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.

glogg development version v0.99.1 released

This is a further pre-version of v1.0 to be released soon.

It brings some corrections and refinements to the tabbed interface. It still needs a lot of testing so please feel free to comment on the mailing list or raise an issue on GitHub when you experience problems.

Opening a file in an existing instance especially needs some extra testing.

Main changes from v0.99.0:

  • Opening a file now uses an already running instance of glogg if one is present (on Windows and, optionally, Linux).
  • Supports command line options to allow multiple instances (-m) and to ignore the previous session (-s)
  • Attempt to cleanly closes the file in case of memory full condition (instead of crashing!).
  • Add logging capabilities for debugging on Windows.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.

glogg development version v0.99.0 released

This is a pre-version of v1.0 to be released soon. It introduces a tabbed interface to have several files open at once.

If you prefer a stable version, sticking to v0.9.2 is advised for the next few weeks.

Main changes from v0.9.2:

  • Tabbed interface.

Please see the git log at http://github.com/nickbnf/glogg/commits/master for the detailed changelog.

glogg v0.9.2 source repackaged as v0.9.2.1

The source package for glogg v0.9.2 countains an error that prevents the inclusion of the version number in the software (About dialog) when building from source.

v0.9.2.1 is a repackage with the version information correctly included.

No changes in the software, so end users don’t need to upgrade. Windows user please still use the installer for v0.9.2, you are not affected.

Linux distribution maintainers, please make sure you use the new v0.9.2.1 source package.
