  • File system workspace: added an option to hide specific file types from the view, with reasonable defaults: "*.o;*.pyc;*.obj;*.workspace;*.o.d;*.exe;*.dll;*.project"

  • Reload File: keep the folding + bookmarks set on the file
  • Separated between the 'smart paren/bracket' and 'auto add closing paren/bracket' functionalities in the UI. i.e. these 2 now have 2 different checkboxes in the UI
  • C++ class generator: use .hpp file by default instead of .h
  • When loading wxCrafter view, expand the top level node item
  • C++ class wizard: support file system workspace
