Raspberry Pi WebIDE Update to 0.2.2 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Now that Friday is upon us, it seemed like a good time to release a few more updates to the WebIDE for the weekend!  This 0.2.2 release contains primarily bug fixes, and a few new features with new installs.

Here is the entirety of the changelog:

  • Fix for false redirects to /setup even if bitbucket and git is already configured.
  • Change page title based on what directory or file is open.
  • Update Ace to the latest version, fixing line numbering
  • Detect if port 80 is in use during install, and try 3000 instead.
  • Set path to open editor at end of install script to actual hostname.
  • Install python-smbus as part of the installation process.
  • Add symlink for repositories to webide users home path.
  • Fix for closing the schedule manager breaking the editor toolbar.
  • Set default as using hard tabs for editing files for now.

Thank you to everyone that has submitted issues in our issue tracker. It helps immensely to track down bugs, and just make the editor better for everyone.
