Dev-C++ released

This one addresses a few issues with the portable version regarding shortcuts. It also fixes an unsigned negative range error and more in the code tooltip generator.

Changes - Version - 30 Augustus 2011
  • Dev-C++ Portable now does not close a project with an exception error.
  • Shortcuts can now be saved properly by the portable version too.
  • Fixed a range error (unsigned 0 - 1) in the function prototype tooltip.
  • Copied the new class form to New >> Class..., making it easier to find.

Important notices
  1. The options format has changed. If you want to reuse an old pre- config file (NOT recommended), or, more importantly, when you're overriding Compiler Options in your project, you need to re-set these project settings once and save the project. You'll then have an updated project file.
  2. This version has GCC built-in instead of being an aditional package. It also contains D3D9/10/11, GDI, Win32 and OpenGL headers and libraries in that flavor.
  3. This version is now fully portable. If you also don't want Dev to leave anything behind in the registry, please select "Portable" or "Minimal" in the setup options.
  4. For ultimate portable programming, please launch devcppPortable.exe.lnk located in the main folder of the portable zip download. This will make dev save its configuration files in the same folder as the executable.

The setup can be downloaded here. The Portable zip version can be downloaded here. The source code can be found here.
