I am extremely glad to learn

I am extremely glad to learn about this snapshot which has several major bug fixes and changes from the latest versions available in the repositories. Thanks for the useful and information post.

great program, i'm liking it

Just wanted to let you know that i'm very impressed with the program. I sent you an email with some suggestions i'd like to see in the future. Keep up the great work. gPHPEdit is quickly becoming my editor of choice. :)

Editor in Version 0.9.91 is a fantastic harddrive tester

Hi guys,

your editor is a fantastic harddrive tester for robustness ;)

Each change of the windows size between left folder-window and right editor-window with the stripline execute a writing on the harddisk.

So if you would like to scratch your harddisk like DJ then your application is absolutely great :)

Otherwise I miss the hightlighting starts automatically when I open a file. It's pitty that I have to set it manually.

Please do not resign, but check these bugs :)


Thanks for the feedback

Thank you for the frank feedback :-). It would be great if you could post future bug reports at

Are you sure you are using the latest version of the editor? I couldn't replicate bug on my machine.

I didn't quite get the part about highlighting. Can you please clarify?
