About
===
Scratchpad is a lightweight but useful spatial text editor for the GNOME desktop, based on gtksourceview.

This is the first release after the port to Vala, which means that Scratchpad runs natively now and does not require mono anymore. Another new feature is tag-based replacing, as demonstrated in this screencast:

Changes since 0.2
==========
New Features:
- Complete port/rewrite to Vala, Scratchpad now runs (flys) natively!
- Tag-based replace mechanism.
- Use GUniqueApp for single instance behaviour, so startup notification
and focus stealing should work better now.

Removed Features:
- No more GnomeVFS, waiting for GVFS!
- Revisions. Wasn't happy with them, to be reconsidered.
- Autosave and save options. Now defaults to save on focus out (saving your laptop batteries).
- Tools menu.

Bugfixes:
- It's practically a rewrite, so all bugs should be brand new!
- Icon sucks less.

Known Problems:
- Font changes won't take effect immediately.
