Geany 1.37 is out!

October 25th, 2020

We are happy to announce a new release of Geany!

For a comprehensive list of changes please see Release Notes.

Some highlights:

  • Save main and project configuration whenever documents are opened/closed to reduce accidental loss of current session in the event of a crash (can be disabled).
  • Fix a possible crash when quitting (Hodong & Guido Falsi).
  • Show OS info in debug messages which can and should be included in bug reports to ease support and debugging.
  • Update Scintilla to version 3.21.1.
  • Add BibTeX (Mirco Schoenfeld) and Smalltalk (Snowflake the Pony).
  • Update FreeBasic, JavaScript (dmitryunruh), Lua (Filip Szymański) and Python filetypes.
  • Support programming ligatures (like Fira Code font) on Windows.
  • New translations: ie
  • Updated translations: da, de, el, es, fr, id, it, ja, lv, nl, pl, pt, ru, sk, sv, zh_CN

This is the last release supporting GTK+2 and Windows i686 binary builds. Starting with the next release, Geany will require GTK3, a C++17 compiler (like GCC 7.3 or Clang 4.0) and Windows binary builds will only be provided for the x86_64 architecture.

We want to thank all developers, translators and everyone who contributed to this release with patches, feedback, bug reports and so on. Thank you!

As usual, all downloads can be found on Releases.
