Hi All,

codelite 2.0 (build 3365) is officially released.

This release is a major release which introduces many major changes improvements in various areas of codelite:
- Windows packages now includes GCC4.4.0 + GDB7.0 and optionally wxWidgets2.8.10 compiled with GCC4.4.0
- Code Compeltion - 'External Symbols' is no longer needed, CC is faster and smarter
- Debugger - Major parts of the debugger plugin have been re-written to provide one of the best GDB front end available
- UI: the traditional 'Output Pane' has been replaced with a slicker look
- UI: use the 'Finder' to locate various resources/classes/structs in the workspace from a single search bar
- Local Preferences - set preferences per workspace / project
- Build System: use pre-compiled headers in your code to reduce compilation time
- Build System: add N regular expressions to allow codelite to detect more errors (e.g. link errors)
- New Welcome Page
- Many bug fixes

The complete change log (minus non interesting commit logs):
- Fixed crash: Remove Virtual Directory hangs on "" BUG#2847625

- Renamed the 'Settings -> Editor' menu entry to 'Settings -> Global Editor Preferences' (dialog title was modified as well)

Great job man

this IDE (in release 2.0) has basically all the features I was looking for, and is sooo lightweight!
Jut give me the time to understand how the SVN plugin works...

You need to install the svn command line tool

Right click on your project and select the Svn menu option


From the 'Explorer' tab, right click on any folder and select 'Svn' menu option.

There are more options from the 'Explorer' context menu than the 'Workspace' tree because of the nature of the SVN which works on directories (which fits perfectly to the 'Explorer' tab)

Good work.

Wondering when the next release will be out. I am quite excited to move to codelite from C::B, but until this bug fix is rolled in, I will have to wait. ... tid=979960
