Here I'm presenting first Alpha version of Fresh. There are only small changes since last pre-alpha release (bugfixes).

You can download it from here: http://fresh.flatassembler.net/x2download.html.

Project status: Right now project has most of features that were planned (some implemented only partially, some will have to be rewritten).

I wrote todo list for first BETA release. There is almost nothing new here, I'd like to focus on making Fresh mature and stable. Last point (visual library/visual form editing) is something that actually has to be rewritten from scratch, in a different way. John Found had an idea how to implement this ("Stream Component Library"), but this project is unfinished, and proably needs some design changes. This list is very likely to change in future. It isn't very precise, and there are lots of smaller improvements that I will do besides these from the list.
Right now I'm working on new project manager.

TODO for Fresh Beta 1 release:

1. New structure (TProject) that will contain project tree. Current ProjectManager should be only an interface to this object. It is more elegant solution that current one.
2. New help system. It should allow more than one help file. When user presses F1, they all will be searched for a given word. New fresh.chm file is needed too.
3. Find/Replace routines have to be rewritten (searching in multiple files should be done manually, not with AsmEdit, etc).
4. List of code completion symbols have to be stored in some file. When user loads project, he will be able to use CC function without recompiling sources. This list should be also generated in background, but I don't have an idea how exactly it will work Smile.
5. Better installer. It have to associate files to Fresh, create uninstaller, add shourtcuts, etc. Of course it will be only an option for people who like installers (like me Smile), ZIPed package will be available too.
6. Degugger. At least some basic features, like step over functions, memory dump and variable watch.
7. Plugin system. Not necessary now, may be usefull in future.
8. Creation of visual forms, visual library - it have to be rewritten.

I still hope that John will return to FASM community. I don't have his skills nor his experience, but I will try do do my best to continue his project.


best regards,
Mateusz Tymek

Good work Mateusz! One annoying bug though. When I press colon (Smile on my keyboard, the auto-completion list shows up, 'cause ('.'+Shift->':', and ':' = delimiter -> shows list of all symbols....) Can you fix it?

Take care!

OK, I'll fix it.
BTW, would you still like to help developing AsmEdit?

decard: not that i am going to use fresh, but did you think about custom highlights? i loved those in DOS editors, for example to highlight often-used macros like stdcall, invoke etc. with special color

Tommy: OK.
vid: although it is not mentioned in the list above, I plan to do something like this. But I'm planning to more: list of macro names could be generated in runtime (just like symbols for code completion), then it will be used by syntax highlighter. I will think of it when I will have more time.

btw: it would be nice if the word will be completed automatically when there's only item in the list... Wink

No, there are some cases where such behaviour would be unwanted.

Well, I don't have any particular case in my mind now, it may be confusing sometimes. I don't want my editor to type anytjing for me unless I want it to do so (then I press enter when CC list is opened). Sometimes you press to much keys, or want to "go back" and insert another word from list...
Anyway when CC list contains only one item, and you want to insert it, you simply press enter.

One example: when you are writing a few letters and do a typo. So instead of deleting a single char, you got a whole word to delete.
