Bluefish 2.2.6

This simple to use application offers you the possibility to edit your source code or create new projects using multiple editing tools
Bluefish is a feature-rich word processing application for programmers and web designers, which offers support for JavaScript, PHP, Perl, C/C++, HTML, Java, Python, Ruby, XML, XHTML and VisualBasic scripts, among others.

The interface is clean and well-organized. Thanks to the Explorer-based folder structure, you can easily navigate directories to locate and edit files.

You can edit tags and colors, add bookmarks, select the input method, and insert Unicode control characters. Bluefish includes spellcheck dictionaries in multiple languages and supports syntax highlighting. It lets you switch to full screen mode, insert preset code, and synchronize text block.

The tool is able to create commands for Windows 7 Internet Explorer (x86 and x32) and Windows XP Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer. You can insert tags for headings, entities, format (general, by context or layout), tables, lists, forms, HTML5-supported, and others.

Other options of the program enable you to perform conversions (e.g. characters to entities, to lowercase, URL decoding), count words, duplicate lines, generate Lorem Ipsum text, use an advanced search and replace function (e.g. match pattern, scope, case sensitive), and more.

The application is low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and works well, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. Thanks to its wide range of options and configurable settings, Bluefish should please programmers and web desginers.

What's New in This Release:
  • This release fixes a critical bug (segfault) in filebrowser that could be triggered if the root directory was set as basedir. It also has a fix for a specific CSS-in-HTML-tag highlighting issue. The filter code furthermore caused a segfault if the command did not exist. The Windows version finally supports open in running process. Next to these bugs many small issues have been resolved. Development checks are now only enabled if Bluefish is compiled from svn, not if compiled from tarball. Various language files have small improvements, most notably C, Javascript and CSS. Several translations have been updated. A corner case for a new document from a template that does not exist was fixed. The "open" submenu now opens SVG files from the filebrowser instead of inserting an image tag. The included cssmin and jsbeatify have been updated. A syntax scanning issue when replacing large chunks of text was fixed, he "Report bug" link was broken, a new "conditional" option to the language file that makes re-using certain blocks of language files easier was added, and error reporting in outputbox was improved. On OSX filebrowser icons and the "open file" dialog size have been improved.
