ANN: Leo 4.10 final released

Leo 4.10 final is now available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/leo/files/Leo/4.10%20final/

Leo is a text editor, data organizer, project manager and much more.
http://webpages.charter.net/edreamleo/intro.html

Leo 4.10 contains 9 months of intense work on Leo. Several very
important
features are subtle; you could almost call them Easter Eggs, so please
read
the following notes carefully.

The highlights of Leo 4.10:
--------------------------

* Dozens of new and improved features and commands, including...
- Tab completion now shows all @command & @button nodes.
- Leo tabs may be detached from the main window.
- The Open With menu now works.
- The leoInspect module answers questions about Python code.
- Leo can highlight the pane containing the focus.
- The bigdash plugin searches across multiple files.
- Improved abbreviation capabilities.
- Improved handling of URL's.
- Improved editing of non-Leo files.
- Improvements create "weightless" unit testing.
- Improved Leo's home page.
* Easier installation on MacOS.
* Fixed almost 70 bugs.

The Easter Eggs
---------------

1. Tab completion now shows all @command & @button nodes.

Put all your common scripts in @command nodes in myLeoSettings.leo.
Typing <Alt-X>@c<Tab> will remind you of the names of these scripts.
You can execute the scripts by name without the "@command-" prefix.

2. Improved abbreviation capabilities.

Virtually any kind of abbreviation is possible. For example, ~a to .

3. Improved handling of URL's.

URL's can be used as links to other Leo outlines.

4 Weightless unit testing.

The mantra is edit, alt-4 (run-marked-unit-tests-externally), edit,
alt-4,... Several seemingly innocuous changes made this work without
"friction". The result is a remarkable increase in productivity.
