Release 4.8

Version 4.8 is out now. Here’s what’s new:

  • Built-in support for multi-stroke key bindings
  • New method: getLineTokens
  • New modes: dockerfile, IDL, and Objective C (as a rather crude specialization of clike mode)
  • Support styling of gutter backgrounds, allow "gutter" styles in addLineClass
  • Many improvements to the Vim mode, rewritten visual mode.
  • Improvements to modes: gfm (strikethrough), SPARQL (version 1.1 support), and sTeX (no more runaway math mode).

The zip file is here, and the full list of patches is here.


looks great: this will make ipython#6996 much cleaner! the sparql stuff is a bonus, wasn’t expecting that to get landed and released so quickly :slight_smile:
