Version 0.4 Release Notes

Miscellaneous Improvements and Bug Fixes
  • DPI fixes and improvements.
    • (Windows) Changes to DPI scaling settings are now automatically applied to dred dynamically at run-time:
    • The "ui-scale" setting is now applied immediately without the need for a restart. This setting stacks with the system DPI setting.
  • Added tooltips to the tab bar showing the full path of the file when the mouse is hovered over a tab.
  • Added support for running dred in portable mode in response to detecting a "portable.dred" config file in the same directory as the exe.
  • Fixed a bug with autocomplete where the popup box would not be filled correctly after executing a command.
  • Fixed a bug where the command bar would not be relieved of the keyboard focus when opening any kind of dialog box via a command.
  • Fixed a possible crash when opening a dialog box.
  • Fixed a bug where favourites do not show correctly.
  • Fixed a printing bug where an excess page is printed.

Source Code Improvements
  • Improved the font scaling system. The new system removes the old acquire/unacquire system for sub-fonts and replace it with a system where each of the relevant font and text painting APIs take a scale. The handling of font scaling is now done internally by DTK rather than by dred. The advantage to this new system is that it greatly simplifies font management.
  • Improved image scaling system. The new system adds support for SVG images and introduces the notion of stock images.
  • Removed dependency on dr.h
  • Removed dependency on dr_ipc.h
  • Added more standard controls to DTK.
    • Button
    • Checkbox
    • Color Button (color picker)
    • Scrollbar
    • Tab Group and Tab Bar
  • Added font picker dialog to DTK.
  • Added date/time and file path APIs to DTK.
