Running version -r in dCore-jessie does not indicate any updates, so i couldn't test/confirm the new hinting fltk-editor, it's part of base right? Actually this system is running dCore-jessie:2016.11.25.23.23, the latest release candidate. Has it been this long or is my update checker not working correct?
No problem regarding extra features, matching base is best. No shortage of editors and IDEs to provide extras. Using bootlist dependencies, Beaver from dCore pre-built is only one 144 KB packages that adds all these features plus more (word wrap, tabbed docs, undo, numerous language hinting, etc.). Thanks.
