Text Trix is a cross-platform text editor focusing on user-friendly file and text navigation. The editor now features syntax highlighting, search navigation improvements, and many fixes for building and startup. The GPL-licensed Ostermiller syntax highlighter has been incorporated to automatically color and format text according to the given file type. Search improvements include the ability to search backward in Word Find (Shift+F3), as well as contextual scrolling for viewing found text in its context.
Line Dance also includes several fixes and now automatically names lines based on selected text. Text is more mobile through drag-n-drop. Build improvements include updated editor and plugin build scripts as simpler compilation mechanisms than the configure/Makefile combination, and startup errors on Vista platforms have been fixed. Several new command-line options have been added, including Fresh mode (to temporarily launch without reopening tabs) and no highlighting (for slower systems).
Future directions include textual formatting, such as font styles, sizes, and alignment, as well as greater windowing and web preview controls.
