Textadept 7.0 beta 4 is released from http://foicica.com/textadept.

Please see the migration guide[1] for upgrading from Textadept 6 to 7.

This release features built-in run/compile commands with their respective
warning/error patterns -- your preferences and language modules no longer
need to add them. There is also a new, more user-friendly dialogs module.
And finally, the last of the API tweaks I hope; nothing major this time.

This should be the last beta release before the final 7.0 on November 1.


  * Fixed various compile and install errors.
  * Fixed error when block commenting plain text.


  * `events.disconnect()` now accepts function argument instead of ID.
  * `buffer.filename` and all internal filenames are no longer encoded in
    UTF-8, but in `_CHARSET`.
  * Removed many unused Scintilla constants and stripped many constants of
    `SC` and `SC_` prefixes.
  * Changed marker margin symbols via `properties.lua`.
  * Calling `textadept.editing.select_word()` repeatedly makes multiple
  * Renamed `buffer:convert_eo_ls()` to `convert_eols()`.
  * Added `textadept.run.MARK_WARNING` marker.
  * Compile and run commands for languages that support them are now
    built-in along with their respective warning and error messages. The
    supplemental ones on the wiki are no longer needed.
  * Renamed `textadept.run.compile_command` and `textadept.run.run_command`
    to `compile_commands` and `run_commands`, respectively.
  * Renamed `textadept.run.error_detail` to error_patterns and changed its
    internal structure.
  * New `ui.dialogs` module for more user-friendly dialog support. Removed
    `ui.filteredlist()` as a result.
  * Changed `io.open_file()` and `io.snapopen()` to accept tables of files
    and paths instead of ā€œ\nā€ delimited strings.

I hope the new fold markers are agreeable, but let me know if you are
really unhappy with them. They are more easily changed by referencing
