April 23, 2019

New General Features

  • Greatly improved the speed of opening very large files, Find/Replace/Filter, the Uppercase, Lowercase, Capitalize, Full-width, and Half-width commands using multi-threaded code and the AVX-2 instruction set found in recent CPUs.

  • Greatly improved the speed especially when the opened document contains very long lines.

  • The new version allows you to press CTRL + SHIFT + V several times consecutively in all text boxes in dialog boxes to paste previously copied text in the Clipboard history of the editor.

  • Updated the IPTip.jsee macro to support new GeoLite2 CSV format. This macro is used to show the country name as a tooltip when the mouse hovers on IP v4 addresses if IP v4 active strings are enabled.
