The latest installation instructions for Texstudio

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, TeXstudio is an open-source integrated writing environment for creating LaTeX documents. Among others, it has syntax highlighting features, an integrated viewer, reference checking, completion for references and bibliography entries, access to over 1000 mathematical symbols easy and a feature for performing copy/paste/insert new table columns operations with a single click.

The latest version available is TeXstudio 2.9.0, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:

  • link overlays for urls
  • close editor tab by pressing middle mouse button
  • more standard shortcuts (in particular for OS X)
  • support optional filename argument in txs:///view-pdf-internal
  • add “expand/collapse all documents” to context menu of structure
  • add tabulary support
  • open correct log file if output filenames are changed due to “%& -job-name=targetfile” (note: changed pdf filename not yet supported)
  • user-defined icons are now portable: if possible icon paths are stored relative to settings dir or application dir
  • windowed pdf viewer now supports –no-focus argument
  • improved detection of label name for “Insert \ref to Next Label”
  • improved context detection for preview (multi-line math, cursor inside multi-char delimiter)
  • improved search for texdoc location
  • improved log parsing including support for LaTeX3 warnings and errors
  • resize with soft line warp: keep vertical cursor position constant
  • support .tikz files (treated like .tex files)

  • new option: mouse wheel zoom also controls the log editor (patch by Paulo Silva)
  • new option: encoding of bib files
  • new options: some GUI elements are now scalable (for better hi-res display support)
  • some cleanup in the options dialog
  • change: LaTeX templates need to have “% !TXS template” on the first line if placeholders should be interpreted, otherwise files are loaded as plain LaTeX
  • fix: maintain expansion of the Structure View in more situations
  • fix: caseSensistivity for global search
  • fix: sync scrolling in enlarged embedded pdf viewer
  • fix: interpretation of % !BIB program = biber
  • fix: fit to text width in multi-page grid of pdf viewer

  • fix: compilation on freebsd (patch by Abilio)
  • fix: display user command icon (patch by Paulo Silva)
  • fix: svn auto-checkin was not executed after some types of save operations
  • fix: link-click on bib file also searches in additionalBibPaths
  • fix: some sections were incorrectly marked as “beyond end of document”
  • fix: crash when file is removed and silent reload is activated
  • fix: failed “! TeX encoding” detection due to bug in line end detection
  • fix: ignore hyph_*.dic files when looking for hunspell dictionaries
  • fix: trigger ?load-file for files opened with the session at startup
  • fix: update encoding in status bar when a % !TeX encoding = … magic comment is typed
  • fix: issue with opening some template zip files by updating QuaZip to 0.7.1
  • fix: parsing of synctex file with nested sheets
  • fix: crash when undoing insertion of magic comments
  • fix: make symbol grid visible on dark-themed desktops
  • fix: handle multiple existing assignments when checking the change of a shortcut
  • fix: broken folding of %BEGIN_FOLD if the special math-close-comment %$ was used in the folded area
  • fix: incorrect wrapping if chinese punctuation characters are on the line
  • completer is disabled in overwrite mode (because it does not work correctly while overwriting)
  • fix: incorrect behavior of input method with forward selections
  • fix: texdoc usage on OS X
  • fix: rendering of 1×1 non-continouos pdf page on retina display
  • fix: some missing symbols
