Updates in 2011

  • 64-bit Versions for Windows and Linux
    Native 64-bit versions of SlickEdit are now available for Windows and Linux. These allow you to run on 64-bit platforms without the use of 32-bit libraries. SlickEdit still retains the 2 gigabyte file size limit
  • Support for the Git Version Control System
    Added support for the Git version control system. The basic operations supported are: add, remove, commit, revert, push, and pull. SlickEdit have also built a basic status tree showing the result of comparing the workspace to the repository
  • Updated Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Support
    This includes the following changes:
    • Improved workspace and project folder handling
    • Added ability to read project property sheets
    • Improved support for project dependencies
  • Multithreading
    Parts of SlickEdit 2011 have been re-engineered to be multithreaded. This makes better use of available CPU resources and reduces the waiting time for affected operations
  • Auto-Reload Performed on a Thread
    Auto-reload now uses a thread to access files, preventing SlickEdit from hanging due to unavailable resources. Auto-reload is still performed when you switch applications. A future modification may involve periodically checking for modified files, but that has not yet been implemented
  • Updated JUnit Support
    The JUnit support was updated to support version 4.6 and later. Earlier versions are not supported
  • Support for Ruby Debugging
  • Dynamic Debugger Enhancements
    This includes the following changes:
    • Added support for Python 3
    • Corrected display of Python special values: True, False, and None
    • Added a column to display the Value Type
    • Added the capability to change values while debugging
    • Improved the display of Perl values. Previously, all values were displayed as scalars
