- When editing a file opened in Dev-C++ elsewhere, Dev will only show one messagebox informing you of the change.
- The tip of the day form is now not shown on startup by default
- A bunch of bug fixes.
- The setup which includes MinGW32 4.7.2 can be downloaded here (25MB).
- The setup which includes TDM-GCC x64 4.7.1 can be downloaded here (44MB).
- The setup which does not include a compiler can be downloaded here (2MB).
- The portable version which includes MinGW32 4.7.2 can be downloaded here (17MB).
- The portable version which includes TDM-GCC x64 4.7.1 can be downloaded here (32MB).
- The portable version which does not include a compiler can be downloaded here (2MB).
- Separate compilers can be downloaded here.
- Lastly, the source code can be found here (1MB).
All editions can run on 32-bit Windows.
All Dev-C++ editions can be updated using the No Compiler setups/zips.
Choosing between 32bit and 64bit
- The 64bit compiler will fully work op 32bit computers.
- The 64bit compiler can do everything the 32bit compiler can, including creating 32bit executables.
- The 64bit compiler can do stuff the 32bit compiler can't, like creating 64bit executables. It also comes with a lot more headers and libraries.
- There is no single reason to download the 32bit version except for maybe file size, marginally longer compiling time, or in case you have to use that specific compiler for any reason (regression problems for example).
- To force 32bit on all new projects and non-project compiles, go to Tools >> Compiler Options and select the 'TDM-GCC 32bit' profile. This profile will use the -m32 flag and use lib32 by default.
- To force 32bit on already created projects, go to Project >> Project Options >> Compiler and select the 'TDM-GCC 32bit' compiler profile.
- Always launch Dev-C++ using devcppPortable.exe located in the installation folder of the portable version. This launcher will tell Dev-C++ to save its configuration files in its own folder.
