    I'm very happy to release B4J v3.00.

    The IDE was completely rewritten.
    The new IDE is significantly more powerful, smarter, more modern and more scalable.

    There are too many improvements to list them all.

    I will just list some features that are less obvious:

    - Press on Ctrl + Click to jump to an identifier (sub, variables, etc.).
    - Themes - Ctrl + T
    - Sophisticated conditional compilation: #If, #Else If, #Else and support for OR and AND.
    - Dockable layout. Including support for multiple open editors.
    - Find all references - F7.
    - Quick search - Ctrl + F.
    - Goto sub / module - Ctrl + E.
    - Smarter autocomplete.
    - Hover over variables and expressions in debug mode.
    - Structure matching.
    - Automatic warnings and errors highlighting.

    Requirements

    - Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0+ is required. If you are running Windows XP then you should install .Net Framework 4.0: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851

    - Developers running Vista or above should install .Net Framework 4.5.2: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642

    It is important to install the latest version as it includes important fixes. Some of the optimizations will be disabled with older versions.

    The full version can be downloaded from this page: www.b4x.com/b4j

    Nice find. I haven't tested it however it will probably work fine.

    Is there a thread here on the topic of the future of Scene Builder and its implications for B4J? I'd like to understand the why of this, i.e. is JavaFX being deprecated, etc. I'm not enough of an Oracle insider to know what to expect.

    What does 'Auto Save' and 'Structure Matching' do?

    As an improvement to Ctrl+F, multiple Ctrl+F'ing will cycle through the options (instead of need to press down or up arrows).
    As a further improvement, it will auto-jump to that location instead of needing a click/enter (as an IDE option).

    Thank you

    There is no auto save in the list.

    Structure matching happens when the cursor is inside a structure token. For example if it is in the sub keyword:

    Please start a new thread for this question / discussion.

    It means that the project is saved whenever you compile the app.

    I see. I misunderstood it.
    Thanks.
