Now that the Mercurial code move is over and a whole bunch more bugs have been worked out, I’m happy to announce the first 2.1 testing release that’s being signalled for downloads. The new build is also available for download here:

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the various announced changes, 2.1 has these headline features:

  1. Full Unicode Support

  2. Support for Translations - PN in your language

  3. Prototype Command Bar feature (with PyPN)

  4. Multiple simultaneous selections, including typing into block selections

  5. Virtual space

There are also a lot of bug fixes, smaller improvements and extensions interface improvements. This release of 2.1 is close to what I want to release as the new stable build as soon as it’s proven at least as stable as 2.0.10.
