  2. Custom scheme is now implemented as a PN extension.

  3. Double-click on tab bar (not on tab) starts a new doc.

  4. 3 types of block comment supported in custom schemes (schemedef).

  5. Tags only auto-closed in the correct state in HTML/XML, hr br and img not auto-closed.

  6. Miscellaneous updates to schemes to improve highlighting (including HTML5 elements and attributes).

  7. RTF export reworked, background colours now working better.

  8. Properties scheme folding.

  9. Crash issues with split views fixed.
