SciTE v5.0.1

SciTE is a SCIntilla based Text Editor. Originally built to demonstrate Scintilla, it has grown to be a generally useful editor with facilities for building and running programs. It is best used for jobs with simple configurations - I use it for building test and demonstration programs as well as SciTE and Scintilla, themselves.

Development of Scintilla started as an effort to improve the text editor in PythonWin. After being frustrated by problems in the Richedit control used by PythonWin, it looked like the best way forward was to write a new edit control. The biggest problem with Richedit and other similar controls is that they treat styling changes as important persistent changes to the document so they are saved into the undo stack and set the document's dirty flag. For source code, styling should not be persisted as it can be mechanically recreated.

Scintilla is a free source code editing component. It comes with complete source code and a license that permits use in any free project or commercial product.

As well as features found in standard text editing components, Scintilla includes features especially useful when editing and debugging source code. These include support for syntax styling, error indicators, code completion and call tips. The selection margin can contain markers like those used in debuggers to indicate breakpoints and the current line. Styling choices are more open than with many editors, allowing the use of proportional fonts, bold and italics, multiple foreground and background colors and multiple fonts.

Change Info:
Release 5.0.1

Released 9 April 2021.
Remove SetLexer, SetLexerLanguage, and LoadLexerLibrary methods. These have been superceded by Lexilla and the SetILexer API.
Improve the platform layer interface. Add support for stroke width and translucency to drawing methods. Allow clipping to nest. Add methods for UTF-8 text. Add methods for encoding conversion. Use these changes to improve appearance.
Add SCI_SUPPORTSFEATURE method to allow applications to determine which features are available and to then choose workarounds for missing features like translucent drawing.
Add colouralpha type to Scintilla.iface for APIs that set both colour and transparency together as an RGBA value.
Add SCI_INDICSETSTROKEWIDTH to set stroke width of indicators.
Add shapes with curved and rounded ends to EOL annotations as EOLANNOTATION_*.
Add SCI_SETELEMENTCOLOUR and related APIs to change colours of visible elements. Implement SC_ELEMENT_LIST* to change colours of autocompletion lists.
Support Unicode characters as margin markers with SC_MARK_CHARACTER.
EOL annotation text is now always treated as UTF-8 instead of in the document encoding.
Change graphics coordinates from float (32-bit) to double (64-bit). Fixes uneven line heights in large documents on Cocoa. Increases memory use. Bug #2224.
On Cocoa, fix drawing in revealed area after enlarging window. Bug #2238.
On Win32, fix crash with SC_TECHNOLOGY_DIRECTWRITERETAIN. Bug #2243.
On GTK, changes in system font settings (such as from Tweak) are detected and position caches are invalidated since different font display options, such as antialiasing, change character shape and thus positions.
