What's New

This maintenance release adds '.fountain' to the known plain text extensions. It also further improves auto-saving and handles graphics card switching better. The update fixes minor issues too.


- '.fountain' added to list of known plain text extensions.


- Windows are now automatically saved five minutes after the last modification instead of every five minutes.
- Better graphics card handling on MacBooks with discrete graphics card.
- Manually checking for updates reports now also versions that should be skipped.


- Issue where closing modified document windows saved them independently of whether changes should be saved or not.
- Issue where the search engine didn't find all occurrences for proximity operators using wildcards, e.g., 'word1 NEAR word2*'.
- Issue where changing, e.g., label colors wasn't persistent anymore (macOS Sierra).
