Geany 1.34.1 is out!

Posted on Jan. 04, 2019 at 03:59 PM

Shortly after 1.34, we have released 1.34.1 which fixes a few issues that were discovered in the 1.34 release. Most importantly, while fixing other related issues, version 1.34 broke line breaking feature on existing lines, and unwillingly changed the modifier for rectangular selections on Windows.

We also took the opportunity to include a Ukrainian translation update that didn't make it into 1.34 in time, as well as a fix for displaying filenames containing XML control characters inside infobars.
