New Start Here Page
« on: February 18, 2006, 05:07:54 pm »
Dear users,

in revision 2029 (respectively in the nightly build of February 18, 2006), the "Start here" page has been substantially changed.

As a minor change, the configuration links have made way for a larger list of recent items, which is used a lot more often.

The important changes, however, are:
  • The logo is now a hyperlink to the Code::Blocks home page.
  • Clicking on either the logo or the "Report a bug" links will copy the revision string to the clipboard before launching the browser.
  • Clicking on the revision string will copy the revision, too.

This means that from now on, there is absolutely no excuse for not providing complete revision information when reporting a bug or a problem.

All you have to do is to press Ctrl-V ( = paste) as the first thing before you start typing.
