What's New in Version 2.0

<p>New:<br />• Sidebar: you can now open folders with File->Open… or drop folders on Textastic's Dock icon. You can quickly navigate a folder hierarchy in the sidebar using the cursor keys and immediately view the selected file. If you want a file to stay open, you can double-click on it in the sidebar, hit the return key, or move the focus to the editor.<br />• When an open file is changed by another application, it is automatically reloaded when Textastic is activated.<br />• Added new menu items "Copy as Styled Text" and "Copy as Styled HTML". These allow you to copy the currently selected text while also copying the colors and font styles in RTF or HTML format. Styled text can be inserted in apps like TextEdit, Word, or in some browser web forms. This works best with light themes.<br />• Selected text can now be surrounded with parentheses by pressing "(". This also works with quotes, brackets and other character pairs. Which pairs work depends on the currently selected syntax definition.<br />• The font size can now be changed with Cmd+ and Cmd-.<br />• The path of a file is now shown as a tooltip of its tab.<br />• Find and replace is now much faster.<br />• improved handling of very large files<br />• improved startup time<br />• added a Dock menu<br /><br />Fixed:<br />• When saving shell scripts or other executable files, the sandboxing system quarantined the files. Gatekeeper prevents quarantined executable files and other similar files (shell scripts, web archives, and so on) from opening or executing unless the user explicitly launches them from Finder. If those executables are tools that are intended to run from the command line, such as shell scripts, this presents a problem. Executable files are now no longer quarantined.<br />• Fixed "You don't have permission to write to the folder that the file is in" problem which would come up in some configurations when saving a file with a different extension.<br />• Fixed a crash with some language grammars (namely the Go bundle)<br />• When you searched for something (Cmd-F) and then canceled the search bar with escape, focus did not return to the editor.<br />• Fixed layout problems when opening the version browser from full screen mode.<br />• many other minor bug fixes and improvements</p>
