it's time for a beta version, actual it is only the current SVN version.
There are some interesting changes which need testing.
- new filetypes TCL and Ruby
- compile(read syntax check) support for Perl, Python and Ruby
- filetype definition files(these which are found in
$prefix/share/geany) can be overridden by files in Geany's
configuration directory(documentation for this follows soon)
- user-definable keyboard shortcuts are available in the preferences
dialog (needs to be tested)
- new menu item search with items from the Edit menu item and some new
- as usual some bugfixes (for more details read the ChangeLog)
- added translation for Catalan (this and the German translation are a
bit outdated, will be updated)
Thanks for testing.

Geany, a lightweight IDE using GTK2 - http://geany.uvena.de
Just been working all day in Geany and i'm very happy with reordable
tabs. It's really helps in working with lots of files at the same file
without having to look where they are in the tablist (i prefere leaving
the sidebar open only for symbols listing).
So a big thanks for quick reply and implementation (well its in the SVN
is what i mean :).
Here is another small suggestion:

Subject: geany_0.7-1_i386.changes REJECTED
rejected, due to copyright problems.
This packages source includes scintilla, but removed that codes license.txt, which
is a violation of the scintilla license. It is ok to copy code, if one follows the
For you that means: Get upstream to fix its package, and then you need to list all
different licenses in debian/copyright. After both is done you can reupload.
Until then it is not distributable, not even for upstream...
----- End forwarded message -----
The license is in http://scintilla.sourceforge.net/License.txt and I
think it should be distributed along with geany, as Joerg points out.
I hope you can include it in the next release, maybe a 0.7.1 ? until
0.8 is ready? If this is an option, we may also include some more
translations (at least spanish was introduced after 0.7, by me).
P.S.: For those not familiar with debian procedures the forwarded mail
is a reject to include geany in debian for the stated reasons, of course
I'll re-upload once this problems get worked out.
I noticed this a coupled the last 3 days that, if i leave my Geany open
all night and come back. My desktop feels terribly slow and not very
responsive (lagged would be another discription).
As for desktop environment i'm using XFce4 with basic components (xfce
setting manager, xfce session manager, xfdesktop, xfpanel, xfwm4 and no
screensaver-deamon of any kind) which should be 'lightweight' enough
compared to more 'complete' desktops such as Gnome/KDE.
When i look at the system resource usage. I dont notice any significant
large amount of memory resource or cpu resource used by Geany. But yet
closing Geany makes the desktop feel responsive again as it should be.
I would like to know or this is a known or issue _or_ that anyone else
has experienced this.
Just right now i sent email to Frank Lanitz and catch "unknown user"

I've seen a lot of feature requests for things that don't fit Geany's
"keep it lightweight" philosophy. I was wondering how hard it would
be to make Geany extensible? Xchat, Gaim, and many other programs
have perl scripting plugins, as well as python, tcl, and other sorts.
I'd be interested to know if this is feasible -- if Geany had some
kind of plugin architecture, we could keep the benefits of a small
IDE, but allow third-party customization for things like subversion,
gdb, and so on.

I'm using this very nice lightweight IDE to code my Python projects in.
What i would really like to see is the ability to work with
Subversion(SVN) repositories to check status, logs, diff, checkout,
update and commit files, all the essential SVN commands from the IDE
within the GUI.
The message 'window' area would be very suitable for this imo.
