EditPad is compatible with most recent Linux distributions, including SuSE 7.x and 8.x, Mandrake 7.x, 8.x and 9.x and Red Hat 8.x and 9.x.
EditPad will only run on a computer with an x86 CPU from Intel or AMD. PowerPC (PPC) systems are not supported. EditPad for Linux also requires XFree86. Both KDE and GNOME desktops are supported.
EditPad Lite and Pro are being developed with Borland Kylix 3. Like all Kylix 3 GUI applications, EditPad Lite and Pro for Linux depends on a special version of the QT library, namely libborqt-6.9-qt2.3.so. This library is included with the full downloads below.
What's New in This Release:
· Block|Rectangular Selections: If there already is a selection, toggle the existing selection between linear/rectangular instead of clearing it.
· URLs that don't indicate the protocol but begin with www or ftp are now also highlighted. I.e. www.editpadpro.com will be highlighted just like http://www.editpadpro.com/. If you have created custom syntax coloring schemes, you will need to edit them like the provided schemes to get the same behavior.
· Configure File Types: The spinner controls on the Editor tab were positioned incorrectly, and non-functional (6.4.0 only).
· Drag and drop: Dragging tabs caused an access violation if the option to show an image indicating the file type on tabs was disabled in Options, Preferences, Tabs (6.4.0 only).
· FTP: After opening from FTP or uploading a file with a + or % in its name, and editing it, clicking the Save button did not upload the file with the correct name.
· If EditPad was started at boot time (Startup icon created in Options, Preferences, Shortcuts), and the tray icon option was enabled in Options, Preferences, System, and the PC was rebooted or shut down without EditPad being used at all, the Favorites and Macros would be gone after the reboot.
· Macros: Playing back a macro that did text conversion (which clears the undo history for that file) caused EditPad to crash.
