62.0.012 Nov 2022 21:12 major feature: Reimplementation of the interaction with the clipboard (due to Qt6's strange things). File save/open dialogs turned on by default instead of built-in file manager (for new users). Alas! TEA is user-friendly now...

61.1.021 Sep 2022 09:45 major feature: This release fixes "Find in files" function and TEA default theme. Meet the new option - "Options - Interface - Show tabs and spaces". Also, for Qt6 builds, "Functions - Math - Subtitles: shift timecodes by msecs" function can shift timecodes in SRT and Youtube subtitles. Put msecs to FIF. msecs can be negative, i.e "-2000" shifts timecodes by 2000 msecs earlier.
61.0.007 Jul 2022 10:45 major feature: This version is cool in many reasons. All inner XML parsing has been moved to pugixml instead of Qt's XML parser. I feel that pugixml is faster and more useful for TEA. XML parsing is used at some text formats support (such as FB2, ODT, etc.) and the syntax highlighting engine, so all that stuff was heavy rewritten. To deal with complex file names, new TEA used a new format for the bookmarks and the "Recent" list. The bookmarks file will be converted to the new format automatically, and - TEA uses now a different file to hold bookmarks. The Recent list will be updated by opening files. New option: Tune - Functions - Misc - Show ebooks fine. It adds spaces before each paragraph, when you open FB2, Epub, etc.
60.7.006 Jan 2022 18:06 major feature: This version fixes all stuff related to external processes when TEA is compiled against Qt6. Some bundled Quazip fixes has been made. Also TEA features user-defined virtual keyboards for quick mouse-type letters or whole words. See the Manual about "Keyboards", and the "View" menu.
60.6.008 Oct 2021 12:42 major feature: + Spanish UI translation by Luis Montgomery.
60.5.123 Sep 2021 11:49 minor feature: + FB2.ZIP, FBZ has been added. * If you install TEA from AUR, please note that TEA binary is renamed in AUR packages from "tea" to "tea-qt" due to conflict with another program package at the official Arch repo. * To install fresh TEA from AUR, use "yay -S tea-qt-git"
60.5.007 Aug 2021 09:30 major bugfix: This release fixes many things. The Single application mode fixed forever! DJVU support and poppler-qt6 detected by cmake properly. Also, FB2 reader has been improved a lot - TEA now becomes a very fast FB2-reader without image support.
60.4.014 Jul 2021 20:06 major feature: Namaste! This release features the long awaited functions of autosave. See the Manual "On autosaving" chapter for a details. All that stuff is optional and turned off by default. In short, now TEA can temporary save newly created unsaved files and then load them with a new session. Also, you can mark any file as "autosaved" and TEA shall save it on close or by the timer. Fixes: braces highlighting and palettes.
60.3.031 May 2021 17:23 major feature: + Polish UI and Manual translation by Krzysztof Jaล›kiewicz + Rust hl support + The time consuming operations such as "Find in files" can be interrupted. * Hunspell engine support is available again with cmake (was: broken)
60.1.004 May 2021 17:55 major feature: This release adds a sort of syntax highlighting for SRT and Youtube subtitles (sbv, vtt) formats (timecode highlighting). Haskell highlighting also featured. Such things leaded me to fix the very old bug in syntax highlighting engine, related to incomplete syntax hl module. Working with automatically generated subtitles I've discovered they are not parsed to sentences, thus, have not capitalized words. To help with that, I wrote new function, which you can use, of course, after the manual sentence division by ".", "!" and "?" - Fn - Case - Capitalize sentences. Dates panel becomes more fancy.
60.0.312 Apr 2021 09:02 major bugfix: Qt4 compatibility fix; documentation update.
60.0.105 Apr 2021 16:42 minor bugfix: Qt6 compatibility (in addition to Qt4 and Qt4). Major code refactoring, rewritting and optimizing. New syntax highlighting engine, new IO-subsystem, and many more. UPD: quick fix 60.0.1 fixes problems on CentOS and OS/2

46.1.019 Sep 2018 20:41 major feature: After the major 46 release, a lot of bugs were revealed. I was suprised that TEA lost the Qt 4.x compatibility, so it was fixes now, among the important fix for syntax highligting engine (Qt 4.x version). Thanks to Slackware where I can test it. Another fix is related to Logmemo scripting, so the "log" function works again (can be called from JavaScript). The IDE part of 46.1 adds some Objective C stuff (syntax hl, header/source switch).

With such fixes, I can develop TEA further, based on this stable release. Almost each line of the code was reviewed. But, what's new? On Linux, you can use the joystick to move cursor keys (this function is turned off by default and can be enabled via Tune - Common). The recent list and bookmarks now saved the word wrap settings. "Sum by last column" - can evaluate expressions and knows comments.
