The Changelog: 0.12.1

This release has a much improved flow for editing files remotely using zedrem. Rather than having to copy and paste URLs every time, you can now pass in a user-specific key to the zedrem command and windows will automatically open up when you use zedrem. See the Edit Remote Files page for updated instructions. Note: if you already downloaded the zedrem binary onto a server before, be sure to redownload it to get these new features.

  • Zedrem: The zedrem binary now takes an optional -key flag where the user key can be passed in. This key is automatically generated (see below) and can be requested using the Configuration:Zedrem:Get User Key command. When passed in, edit windows will automatically appear when you run zedrem.
  • Zedrem: the ~/.zedremrc file (that is: the .zedremrc file in your $HOME directory) has been extended to have a userKey entry in the [client] section, this is useful if often editing files on the same server and not wanting to pass in the user key every time.
  • To support the above there is now a zedrem preference in the Configuration (under preference). By default a server is configured there ( over SSL) and a userKey generated. The project picker will establish a persistent websocket connection with this server to enable the behavior described above.
  • Zedrem: ownership of files is now preserved.
  • Modes:
    • Improved C++ symbol indexing (by cessen)
  • Key bindings:
    • Mac: Alt-Delete now added as alternative to Alt-D (by 11684)
  • Zed now works on the Chrome Beta channel again (Chrome 37)
  • Symbols are now listed in order that they appear in files, rather than based on length.
  • Mutliple cursor bug fixes: moving and copying lines up and down now works with multiple cursors, as does whitespace trimming.
  • Standalone: no more crashes with the splash screen.
