Posted on Feb. 15, 2009 at 12:50 PM

We are happy to announce a new release of Geany!

For a comprehensive list of changes to Geany 0.16, please check the Release Notes. A very detailed and complete list of changes can be found in the ChangeLog, included in the source packages as well as in the Windows binary files.

Some of the highlights:

  • Tree-like symbol view in the sidebar
  • Increase minimum required GTK version to 2.8
  • New toolbar which is much more flexible and customisable
  • Add auto-closing of braces, brackets and quotes (Guillaume de Rorthais)
  • Support multiple positions in Snippets (Thomas Martitz)
  • New filetypes Ada, CMake, Matlab, NSIS, Vala and YAML
  • Add Split Window 'Split Vertically' command (thanks to Moritz Barsnick).
  • Improved Windows installer
  • Updated translations: bg, ca, cs, de, en_GB, fr, hu, it, ja, pt_BR, sv, ru, tr, vi, zh_CN

We want to thank all translators who have contributed new or updated translations to this release as well as all people who contributed to this release with patches, feedback, bug reports and so on. Thank you!
