Dev-C++ rereleased (with quick fix)

The Dev-C++ package released yesterday, contained a bug causing project files done in previous version to be opened in with error. Some compiler options of the project we're almost randomly switched off or on (yes to no and no to yes). Today's release fixes this problem.

The new files are in the same location ( or
sizes are:
devcpp- - 2,465,979 bytes
devcpp- - 9,326,468 bytes

Dev-C++ version released :)

Hi !

This release should be fairly stable and provides many improvements since version

Here is the list of most important changes :

  • Implemented new compiler settings framework
  • Implemented "compiler sets" infrastructure to switch between different compilers easily (e.g. gcc-2.95 and gcc-3.2)
  • Implemented search in help files for the word at cursor (context sensitive help)
  • CVS support
  • Compiler settings per-project
  • Compiler set per-project
  • "Compile as C++" per-unit
  • "Include file in compilation process" per-unit
  • Allow customizing of per-unit compile command in projects
  • Added two new macros: <DATE> and <DATETIME>
  • Added support for macros in the "default source code" (Tools/Editor Options/Code)
  • Separated layout info from project file. It is now kept in a different file
    (the same filename as the project's but with extension ".layout"). If you
    have your project under CVS control, you ''ll know why this had to happen...
  • Project version info (creates the relevant VERSIONINFO struct in the private resource)
  • Support XP Themes (creates the CommonControls 6.0 manifest file and includes it in the private resource)
  • Project manager and debugging window (in Debug tab) can now be transformed into floating windows.
  • Added "Add Library" button in Project Options
  • New "Abort compilation" button
  • Added "Files" tab in CVS form to allow selection of more than one file for the requested CVS action
  • support for DLL application hosting, for debugging and executing DLLs under Dev-C++.
  • New class browser option: "Show inherited members"
  • Added support for the '::' member access operator in code-completion
  • Added bracket highlighting. When the caret is on a bracket, that bracket and its counterpart are highlighted
  • Nested folders in project view
  • Current windows listing in Window menu
  • Bug fixes... read more
