  • The top-level file is now in charge of installing Dojo and setting up the development environment.
  • Switched to a multithreaded development server

0.1.3 "Nimble Nimbus" (2009-02-25)

  • Usernames can also be longer, to accommodate people who want to use their email address as their username
  • Safari 4 support
  • There are some "file not found" errors that Bespin would inaccurately report as 405 errors.

  • The browser compatibility popup now looks okay in IE (bug 478337)

0.1.2 "Narky Nimbus" (2009-02-20)

  • Projects are now scoped to each user and not global!
    • To collaborate, the notion of "sharing" projects will be used (a la Google Docs)

  • Commands: Added support for creating and loading up your own commands
    • cmdload commandname
    • cmdedit commandname (forces, so will do an add if you don't have)
    • cmdlist
    • cmdrm commandname

0.1.1 "Naughty Nimbus" (2009-02-13)

  • "> set strictlines on" will allow you to change the mode of how lines and the cursor works. By default, you can always move right on a line (even past where there is content), or click anywhere to get direct access. With strictlines mode, you are restricted. Clicking wide will set the cursor at the end of the line. Mousing left on the first character will take you to the end of the last line. Moving right at the end of a line will take you to the first character of the next line.
  • Fix the way that characters like TAB and BACKSPACE don't get sent to the browser (and thus tab to the command line by mistake)
  • Use the fontsize on load of the editor
  • Add the version from Bespin.versionCodename and Bespin.versionNumber
  • Allow full page zoom and unzoom
  • The command line was given more space

0.1 "Launch Time" (2009-01-15)
