I'm afraid we need to remove the Webkit-related plugins (Webhelper,
Markdown Preview) from the Windows installer.
This is because Webkit itself is going to be removed from MSYS2:
For the upcoming release we could ship the previous version of Webkit
along with the locally cached old version of ICU (i.e. we will ship ICU
61 *and* 62 in the installer).
But I personally would prefer removing the plugins from the Windows
installer immediately for the reasons mentioned in
and to prevent us from shipping two ICU versions which bloats the
Windows installer even more.
If there are no objections, I will remove all Webkit-related settings
from the Windows installer next week.
My name is Ivan Zelinskiy.
Who am I?
First of all I am a practicing FPGA developer writing my code in Verilog
and SystemVerilog. I also know C/C++.
Secondary I am a geany user, as it's my favorite editor in Linux - the
OS (of choice!) of my workstation.
As a result of the former two statements, I support my own branch of
patched geany, gradually fixing issues, "paper-cuts", extending language
support beyond the mainstream features.
It was a steady gradual process, the first commit of my branch dates
back to 2015. It all started with fixing "localparam" keyword, that
would not highlight properly in /data/filedefs/filetypes.verilog. It all
ended in rewriting a good part of /ctags/parsers/verilog.c to fix tag
generation to include some SystemVerilog features and implement a better
support for classical Verilog constructs, that would otherwise often
produce "haywire" results while being parsed.
The complete list of changes is to be created =).
My branch of geany is published on github: https://github.com/ivzeivze/geany
It's a diff-patched geany/master, that is back-merged to my local
historical branch, kept out of public sight (it's messy! =)) I am
currently testing the changes, introduced by exporting, by means of
everyday use. But it seems pretty stable.
I would be glad to see my work merged back into mainstream geany. Yet
likely some clean up should be done before issuing a pull request.
With best regards to devel subscribers,
