PureBasic 5.23 LTS final is available

Post by Fred »

Hi there,

As promized, here is the new LTS version which should include most of the latest fixes (excluding new IDE one, solved by the new Unicode mode). Some other fixes available to 5.30 could be missing, as if we changed too many the internals of a lib, we don't want to push it in the old branches. So no fancy new stuff, just a stabilisation release.
It's available on your online account, as always !

Have fun !

Does that mean the "new IDE" is more unstable? Or is there
another reason? Just curios about that :)

I would suggest everyone to use the IDE from v5.30 with
v5.2x LTS Compiler as the IDEs are always backwards compatible.
And the new features are really nice. Or am i wrong?

Btw. thanks for that. :wink:

We just don't add anymore feature to an LTS version, and having an Unicode IDE is a feature, so all fixes related to it won't make it in the LTS branch.

The IDE is always compiled with the PureBasic version in which it is included. This has multiple benefits, one of which is that it keeps the whole build & packaging process for a PB version simpler. We just build the compiler and libs, and then use that to compile the IDE. The improvements we made to the IDE in 5.30 require PB library features from 5.30 as well. This is why we cannot simply backport them to 5.2x.

Yes, you can do that.

Is it possible to associate the right help file with the compiler used ? And the right auto-completion process ?

Autocompletion depends on the compiler as far as I can remeber (I toyed a bit with it a few years back), I don't know about the help file though :/

Ahh, I see how it works now, so 5.23 (and 5.24, 5.25...) will be the bugfix-only version numbers. Thanks for these Fred!

Are there any plans when the final version of PB 5.23 will be released?
Sorry, I'm just curious. :-)
