I often have problems where SQuirreL crashes or hangs and later on settings that I changed are not saved. Please save settings immediately when they are changed, i.e. when the settings-dialog is closed, as many developers keep the application open and only close it when needed or when it crashes.

Furthermore I also had some instances where settings where not saved at all and where I had to re-configure everything from scratch, I could not reproduce that, though, so I'm not sure what caused this.

    Fixed in CVS. Will be available in the next snapshot. From changes.txt:

    1743720: (Save settings immediately, not only when closing SQuirreL). Now there
    is a setting in Global Preferences to "Save Preferences Immediately" (Default
    is true) Additionally, if this is not desired and it can be disabled to give the
    old behavior (faster), and a new menu item under "File" called "Save Preferences"
    is available to immediately save everything that is normally saved during
    shutdown.
