Geany 0.11 (May 21, 2007)

Notes for existing users:

  • Tab is now used for construct completion (for, if, etc.), but it is configurable with the new 'Complete construct' keybinding.

  • Template files are now stored in ~/.geany/templates/ and the 'template.' filename prefix is no longer used. You will need to

move any custom template files you have.

  • Inserting a file header is now optional for filetype templates. Use the string '{fileheader}' to mark where the file header should

be placed.

  • Drag'n'Drop of text inside the editor widget will now move the text instead of copying it.
