I currently use Geany for Java development, but it doesn't quite recognize records. It gets the initial record declaration correctly, but ignores everything else, including additional constructors, etc.
Any solutions to this?
I just started exploring 'geany' and so far, it looks promising.
But when I try to open a file on our IBM I computer it fails to
load the file. Geany shows the files in the shared folder that
contains the file I want, but when I select it to open, nothing
happens. No error messages. Geany silently ignores my
request to load the file. Rather rude behavior, I should say.
Running geany 1.37. I wanted to make some changes when editing *.yml files so that indents are always two spaces rather than my customary a tab stop of four characters.
I modified the filetypes.yaml file as follows (according to filetype_extensions.conf, *.yaml and *.yml files are treated the same):
# 0 is spaces, 1 is tabs, 2 is tab & spaces
# *.yml 2023-10-30
After clicking on "Reload Configuration" I expected the above changes to be effective, alas, they are not. Indenting a line in a *.yml file still results in a tab stop of four characters.
Have I missed something to make the changes becoming effective?
So I have been using this text editor called Kate on and off which has an embedded terminal on Linux (which till recently did not work on Windows). However, Kate devs have solved the problem and have got it working on Windows 10.
See this article: Introducing The Embedded Terminal on Windows - Kate (kate-editor.org)
I have tried it and it works OK.
Geany has had the same problem since the beginning. The only solutions I can find online are some workarounds involving AutoHotKey.
If Kate devs can solve the issue, what keeps Geany from getting an embedded terminal on Windows?
I currently have 1.38 on my system. I received an email stating that 2.0
has been released.
I'd like to upgrade, but this
sudo apt --only-upgrade install geany
states that 1.38 is the latest release, and that my system is up to date.
Geany is in neither the flatpak nor the snap installed-app list.
How shall I proceed?
Thanks in advance!

Happy Birthday, Geany!
We are happy to announce a new release of Geany!
Before going to the release highlights, let's first celebrate this day!
It's the 18th birthday of Geany! On October 19, 2005 Geany 0.1 was
released. While this first version had less features than the new
version, the spirit and project goals were the same and kept over time.
Geany aims to be a fast and easy to use code and text editor (some may
call it even IDE).
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
For a comprehensive list of changes please see:
* Split "session data" into session.conf, preferences are written to
and read from geany.conf.
* Require GTK 3.24.
* Simplify project creation from existing directories with sources.
* Update Scintilla to 5.3.7 and Lexilla to 5.2.7.
* Use "Prof-Gnome" GTK theme by default on Windows
for a better experience, the "Adwaita" theme can still be activated.
* Sync many parsers from the Universal Ctags project, this leads to
updated symbol parsers.
* Many updated filetypes: Kotlin, Markdown (Robert Di Pardo),
Nim (Zoom), PHP, Python.
* New filetypes: AutoIt (Skif-off), GDScript (David Yang).
* Updated translations: cz, da, de, fr, es, kk, lv, it, nl,
pt, si, sk, ru, ua.
On some systems icons in Geany might be very big and so making the whole
UI require a lot of space. This is due to an issue in the Adwaita icon
theme in version 43. If possible, update the Adwaita icon theme or
use another one. Future versions of Geany might have a workaround
for this issue (for details see
We want to thank all developers, supporters, translators and everyone
who contributed to this release with patches, feedback, bug reports and
so on. Thank you!

Happy Birthday, Geany!
