Hi,

Textadept 8.6 is released from http://foicica.com/textadept

Textadept is a fast, minimalist, and remarkably extensible cross-platform
text editor.

The Windows version is now a single instance application[1]. (You can
create a shortcut to `textadept.exe` that passes the `-f` switch to
disable it; the referenced page has more information.) As a result, the
Linux version can no longer be compiled without single instance support
and now requires GLib 2.28+. (This should not be a problem on modern
machines, as 2.28+ came out back in 2011.) This release also features
"idle-styling", new in Scintilla 3.6.3, which performs syntax highlighting
in the background as needed. It is available for the GUI version and
enabled by default.

Bugfixes:

   * Prevent silent crash reports from being generated on Mac OSX when child
     processes fail to be spawned.
   * Do not "busy wait" for spawned process stdout or stderr on Mac OSX.
   * Fixed bug in escaping `([{<` after mirrors in snippets.
   * Only change spawned process environment if one was specified on Mac OSX.
   * Fixed focus bug in `view:goto_buffer()` with non-focused view.
   * Fixed building the terminal version in debug mode.
   * Fixed potential crash with malformed style properties.
   * Fixed unlikely buffer overflow in messages coming from Scintilla.
   * Fixed potential memory access error when closing Textadept while a spawned
     process is still alive.
   * Fixed bug in setting view properties when restoring sessions with nested
     splits.

Changes:

   * Added support for APL, Docker, Faust, Ledger, MoonScript, man/roff, PICO-8,
     and Pure.
   * Enabled idle-styling of buffers in the background in the GUI version.
   * Undocumented `buffer:clear_cmd_key()` only takes one argument now.
   * Added `-v` and `--version` command line parameters.
   * Added single-instance functionality on Win32.
   * Require GLib 2.28+.
   * Recognize the weight style property.
   * Added `lexer.line_state` and `lexer.line_from_position()` for stateful
     lexers.
   * Updated to lspawn 1.4.
   * Updated to Scintilla 3.6.3.
   * Updated to Scinterm 1.7.

Cheers,
Mitchell
