Geany 1.24.1 is out!

Posted on Apr. 16, 2014 at 04:29 PM

Shortly after 1.24, we release 1.24.1 which fixes missing inclusion of two files in the release tarball, resulting in various small UI issues (see bugs #1037 and #1038). We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Note that only distribution tarballs are affected, neither the Windows installer nor the installations performed from Git clones are.

As usual, all downloads can be found on Releases.
