v20.0 [6 Sep 2013]
1. Editor themes
- Themes are an exciting new feature not because of what they can do but because of what you can do! Themes give you complete control of the appearance of the application, from menus to dockable panes, from toolbars and editor colors to status bar styling.
2. Environments Are Now "Layouts"; Easier to Use
- For years, UltraEdit has supported multiple layout and profile configurations under the umbrella of "Environments". In v20.00, we've renamed this feature to "Layouts" and simplified and streamlined it by providing only 3 default configurations with more descriptive names.
3. CSS Color Tooltips
- Preview your CSS and HTML colors by simply hovering over the color definition in your source code! Move your cursor on top of a CSS color in your HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, or other web file, and UltraEdit will show a small tooltip containing the defined color.
4. Improved: Quantum leap in file handling and large file performance
- You'll be amazed at v20.00's blazing fast file handling with smoother scrolling and instantaneous navigation - even from one end of a large file to the other - in files from 100's of MB to 10 GB in size! Many large file edit operations such as selection, cut, copy, paste, etc., now complete in far less time than that of previous versions. You can also now monitor UltraEdit's progress loading and parsing large files in real time with the new parsing percentage indicator in the status bar.
5. Improved: Greatly expanded Artistic Style support
- Never worry about manually reformatting or tidying your source code with the integrated Artistic Style feature. Version 20.00 includes expanded A-Style functionality with full support for the latest version of A-Style and the ability to include your own configuration files.
