Kephra uses now Wx::AuiNotebook

Testversion 0.4.2 will arrive soon. The biggest visual change may be noticed in the tabbar. It will look different, because we switched from Wx::Notebook to Wx::AuiNotebook. It's less native but looks professional and the desire for movable tabs (by mouse) ruled this decision. As a consequence 4 feature had to be removed on the new tabbar: switch doc back by leftclick, custom function on middleclick, doclist contextmenu and the optional icons for new doc and close doc. Sreencasts are already there.

Kephra 0.4

New stable, polished and long time supported version of the Kephra editor.

Now UTF save, with new shiny UI parts like searchbar and perl output panel and most importantly new internal abstraction layer, so you can change usre language, icon sets, user commands, eventbinding, every menu or toolbar and the key binding! Next cycle will be more about extension and the extension (plugin) API.

Thanks and have joy.

New Testing release

is important because its the first release with extensions (but no API for it yet :)) and first release in which you get the output of your perl scripts inside the editor.
