An update to WebCoder 2007, version 7.01, has been released. It fixes 3 pretty minor bugs:
- The caret would in certain situations jump over an empty line
- The Tab order of the FTP overwrite dialog was wrong
- Problems when trying to write the ASP start sequence (<%) and using HTML AutoProposal
It also adds a new setting, controlling whether or not WebCoder should monitor for external changes to your open files. If you are bothered by WebCoder's prompts to reload changed files, this can now be turned off.
The update has been released to replace version 7.00, so if you are bothered by any of these minor bugs, just re-download from the WebCoder product page and install on top of the previous version. There should be no conflicts with datafiles from the final version of WebCoder.
Note to registered users of WebCoder: This is of course a free upgrade for you :). The location of the product key has been moved, so that WebCoder can now be registered by users not having access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE part of the registry. Instead, it will be installed in HKEY_CURRENT_USER. This means that you have to re-register the application. Simply use the same key if you still have it, or get a new one from the serial key system, as described in the e-mail you received upon purchasing WebCoder. If you have any problems, be sure to contact us.

One of my favorite features of WebCoder is the way it can be extended by the end-user, that is, you! The most powerful way of extending WebCoder is writing scripts for it. You already be doing so, or perhaps you have just noticed the Scripting menu item in WebCoder. The support for scripts allows you to extend WebCoder in almost any way you want to, which makes it so damn powerful that it's hard to actually describe. That's why I want to show you, but how?
People tend to get impressed by different things, so I would like your input here. Put in simple terms, I would like for you to think of something cool to do with WebCoder scripting, and then either do it your self, or make a suggestion for me or anyone else to do it for you. Simply make a post in the development forum about your idea, and throw in some code if you can - if not, it's open for anyone to give it a try and make a post. I will be following the debate, and help as much as possible. If you come up with something really cool, it will be posted here on the blog in a series of helpful posts. Personally, I will document the process of any scripts I make on the TSWiki - I would love for you to do the same :)

As promised, I would like to give away 5 commercial WebCoder 2007 licences to 5 active betatesters. I've had a very hard time choosing only 5, because so many did such a good job, but in the end, I had to make a decision :). Here they are, in no specific order, mentioned with their forum name:
People on the list, please contact me if we haven't already talked about this, and I will make sure that you get your free license :). A big thank you goes out to everyone who participated in the beta test!

I'm very happy to inform you all that after a long period of betatesting, both TSW WebCoder 2007 and TSW SiteSync has been released. You may go and download a trial version of both, as well as check out the cool screenshots and video demos, in case you haven't already seen WebCoder 2007 and SiteSync in action. If you wish to purchase either one or perhaps even both of them, the order page is the place to go - we have created a nice discounted bundle where you get both WebCoder 2007 and SiteSync. In case you have previously purchased WebCoder 2005 or WebPad.NET, you will receive an e-mail with an upgrade discount within the next couple of days.
I wish to thank all the betatesters. You have done a great job, and especially WebCoder has been immensely improved over the last couple of months because of you. I will be going through all the forumposts and deciding on who will get one of the free licenses I promised. Once again, thank you very much :)
Besides that, WebPad.NET has been updated to version 1.10, as mentioned earlier on this blog. There is lots of minor fixes and improvements, along with a couple of new features. If you have previously purchased WebPad.NET, this upgrade is of course free, but you will need a new license key. Please contact us for more information.
That's all for now. Go and check out the new software, and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

Another quick jump, because final beta 4 is here. Only a minimum of bugs have been fixed, and we seem to be getting very close. As you hopefully already know, we give away 5 free commercial WebCoder 2007 licenses to the best betatesters, once the final version has been released!
Download TSW WebCoder 2007 final beta 4 - please provide feedback in the beta forum
I'm looking very much forward to getting your feedback, so keep up the good testing! :)
Please notice that TSW WebCoder 2007 requires the .NET framework to run. The installer will try to install it for you, if you do not already have it. For more information about the .NET framework, please see our .NET info page. Also, please be aware that this is beta software. It's meant for testing only, and if you don't feel comfortable using software with known bugs and quirks, you should wait for the final version.
