I’m happy to announce the release of PowerShell CodeManager 6.0! :-)
This one took me a while, mainly due to work and also for this release, I finally wanted to fix a few rare but nasty bugs. And I did, but it took me into old, dusty parts of the code, which I wrote in the very beginning, 8 years ago. This was shortly after I had started to learn PowerShell and looking at it now, well, lets say there is room for improvement. :)
So improvement and speed is the general focus this time, so apart from a few visible nice features, there are a lot of small changes and handling improvements, which you will notice when you use certain functions.
So here is whats new:
Graph calculation for large scripts, as well as applying filters is twice as fast as before
You can now filter as many functions as you like, either by selecting them in the all-functions overview or directly in the graph. This gives you the ability to quickly and easily create the graph you want.
New Options for colorization and function node display are available in the options bar
Search Result Filter
You can now apply quick-filters for all or selected search results, and save these as a preset as well.
Launch snippets directly from CodeManager with quick access to command line options
Improved File Monitor
CodeManager reacts faster to changes in the monitored locations and further limits necessary re-indexing
– New tooltip/quick info – details for all objects in the snippet/script explorer
– Improved support for PowerShell modules
– New keyboard shortcuts added (see help file for complete list)
This was high on the wish list, so the code windows now features line numbering and a current-line indicator
Improved Inside Code Search
Faster, with improved “mark all results”-feature
Improved Script Edit Mode
Inline syntax coloring and search support
Faster Syntax Coloring
Large scripts are displayed about 4 times faster than before
As well as about 60 bugfixes and countless little handling improvements.
Unfortunately due to provider trouble the auto-updater in v5 does not work anymore, so please download the installer (or Zip) manually on CodeManagers home base: here.
Have a nice day!
