Coming to the point. I am running Ubuntu 8.04.2 on my laptop. The highest version of Ubuntu possible on this Ubuntu version is 0.14, since 0.15 requires a gtk version not in 8.04. Intrepid has 0.15, but it has some problems with my hardware and other reason is that 8.04 is a LTS. Hardy has 0.13 in repos and I installed 0.14 from getdeb.net ( a crude way, I know)
Geany 0.16 is depending on Gtk 2.8.x. I've got current svn version running on Xubuntu 8.04.2. If there is no suitable package avaialble, maybe you can compile it on your own: http://www.geany.org/manual/index.html#installation
I have noticed that PHP has autocomplete in 0.14 but Python does not. Python's default syntax highlighting looks more complete than that of PHP. I use PHP and Python a lot, so Geany is a good choice from a long time. When I found autocomplete, my joy knew no bounds, but is this autocomplete restricted to PHP? Is Python autocomplete available in higher versions? 0.16 is the latest, but I didnt find anything in the changelog. For Python autocomplete, do I have to do a "feature request"? I just wanted to know whether its already in higher versions since I cant install it due to gtk dependency. If it's not implemented, I wish to request this feature. I am also ready to help the developers with this work.
There is a basic autocompletion support inside 0.16. I guess it was introduced with 0.15 but I'm to lazy to look it up. Anyway, from my point of view and my few lines of Python code I'm writing it's sufficient.
