EmEditor v15.6.0 released!

Today, we are releasing EmEditor v15.6.0.

Updates from v15.5.1 include:

New General Features

  • Improved the speed of opening files. Compared to v15.5, the speed to open a large file (809 MB – 2.02 GB) became 12% – 23% faster.
  • You can now select the update channel. Selecting the beta channel will notify you all updates including betas.
  • The Quick Launch command now includes three modes: Commands (Ctrl + Shift + C), Options (Ctrl + Shift + O), and Symbols (Ctrl + Shift + S). Ctrl + Space to bring up the menu to change the mode.
  • The Quick Launch window can be opened as a modeless window. The toolbar in the Quick Launch window includes “Keep This Window Open” button instead of the “Close” button.
  • When multiple EmEditor groups exist, multiple configuration properties and/or Quick Launch windows can be displayed at once.

  • The “Windows 10 has been detected. The View Source by EmEditor on Internet Explorer feature might have a conflict with Microsoft Edge…” warning message will not be displayed any more since Windows 10 Build 10586 fixes the Microsoft Edge bug.
