Some of the highlights:

  • Improve compatibility with GVFS using GIO to save documents (Alexey Antipov).
  • Fix sometimes crashing when closing a modified document and choosing Save.
  • Reorganise Find in Files dialog and add Files pattern to filter search results.
  • Show mimetype icon in sidebar Documents list and notebook popup menu (Colomban Wendling).
  • Add per-document indent width setting (Jiří Techet).
  • Fix passing quoted arguments when using 'Send Selection to'. This means e.g. sed 's/\./(dot)/g' now works.
  • Add alternative color scheme based on Python colors (View->Editor->Color Schemes - not all filetypes supported yet).
  • Auto-indent after an HTML/XML line without a closing tag (Eugene Arshinov).
  • Add Forth filetype (Thomas Huth).
  • Add Lisp filetype (Mário Silva).
  • Add Erlang filetype (Taylor Venable).
  • Add translations: kk.

with patches, feedback, bug reports and so on. Thank you!
