OK. Padre V 0.41 is looking good. No surprise there.
Here are a few nits I'd like to see fixed:
o The About box beeps, and it's unpleasant. No other app I know does that
o The Doc stats box beeps, too
o A save should create a *.bak file
o A Close [x] on the top right of the output, dir tree, etc windows
o A visual indicator that a script is running
o Interpretation of '>' and '|' on the command line when a script or command is run
o Interpretation of \n (e.g.) when I do a regexp replace. It seems the regexp option only applies to the search string, not the replace string
o An option/button to clear the output window
o Correct interpretation of indent = 4 and use tabs. This appears to work for a new file, but I saved the options and reloaded Padre to test, but loading a pre-existing file with tabs as the first char on some lines, had them displayed with 8 spaces
o An icon, e.g. binoculars, to save having to use the menu to open a search window
Despite these small points, I definitely like Padre. Well done!
I look forward to it having a major impact on Perl's visibility.
