There were a couple of not so important things that had drawn my attention in the past. Considering a new release is on its way, I thought they should be mentioned. I'll try to remember them all in the meantime. Here are a few.

1- There is a typo in 'settings->environment->colours'. Item 'Editor:Highlight occurrence' is written as 'Editor:Highlihgt occurrence'.
2- In 'settings->editor->syntax highlighting', the chosen color for 'active line' isn't reflected in the sample code below.
3- The installer for 13.12RC1 displays '12.11' while loading but I'm sure that will change in the final release.

1 is fixed in trunk now. Thank you for reporting it.

If you mean the logo - this is surely subject to change in the final version.

Two small patches to allow the translation of some menu items.

gd_on
Windows 10, svn C::B (last version or almost!), WxWidgets 3.1.3, Compilers 8.1.0, 64 bits (seh, posix : gcc, g++ and gfortran in C:\MinGW64) or 32 bits (sjlj, posix in C:\MinGW32).

Wasn't OSX that proprietary non-developer / open source friendly OS? Well... I'll try if I feel comfortable enough. :-)

I don't know if these rise to the level of important enough to fix for next release, but I found a few case and/or wording inconsistencies in some of the menu items (mostly contrib plugins, many of them mine :( )

patch attached. I didn't apply because wasn't sure if changing some of these items might break stuff.

"Focus thread search" should have at least two capitals, because thread search is the name of a plugin. Probably this is the most consistent "Focus Thread search"

That doesn't look good to me (and out of place with the other "Focus" menu items in the "View" menu. I don't think we are going for strictly grammatically correct but instead for consistency of menu look and feel. I don't think we have a rule for menu labels, but one might be: (1) uppercase first letter, (2) upper case acronyms, and (3) upper case for first letter or proper nouns but only if a lowercase letter would lead to ambiguity. That leaves some ambiguity for that Thread Search item (why isn't it called Threaded Search?), but I think we should avoid making up names that are proper nouns for things that exist only in C::B.

If that's the rule we follow then I need to fix a few more plugins. (e.g. Valgrind)

I agree to that. Even if I always suspected that "Thread search" would be a threaded search and nothing else, the question still kept popping up in the head if there was something more to it. "Threaded search" gives me the correct understanding much faster without figuring if there is some amazing hidden function beyond that.  ::)  ???

An other small patch to allow one translation in options_pgifortran.xml. In the original version, it contains " characters inside an xml string, but this is not correctly interpreted/detected when translating. Using \" looks better (at least works on my PC !)

gd_on:
I don't think your patch is acceptable. The " is the correct way to escape " characters in XML files.
You can always prove me wrong by quoting some kind of a standard or output of a xml verifier.
Until then you'll have to find a better way to fix your problem.

But then you get the wrong impression, because ThreadSearch uses just one 1 thread to search files.
