I'd like to make another release soon, possibly on July 3. This is primarily a bug fix release but also removes functionality from Scintilla: style byte indicators will no longer work. Please check downstream projects before release.

The change to creation of surfaces for measurement on GTK+ is included.

No change has been made for the problem with extra characters being deleted with rectangular selections. Changing the rectangular selection range for any document modification looks good but has too big of a chance of unexpected consequences. That change will be made after 3.4.4.

Change list:
Style byte indicators removed. They were deprecated in 2007. Standard indicators should be used instead.
When multiple selections are active, autocompletion text may be inserted at each selection with new SCI_AUTOCSETMULTI method.
C++ lexer fixes crash for "#define x(". Bug #1614.
C++ lexer fixes raw string recognition so that R"xxx(blah)xxx" is styled as SCE_C_STRINGRAW.
The Postscript lexer no longer marks token edges with indicators as this used style byte indicators.
The Scriptol lexer no longer displays indicators for poor indentation as this used style byte indicators.
TCL lexer fixes names of keyword sets. Bug #1615.
Shell lexer fixes fold matching problem caused by "<<<". Bug #1605.
Fix bug where indicators were not removed when fold highlighting on. Bug #1604.
Fix bug on Cocoa where emoji were treated as being zero width.
Fix crash on GTK+ with Ubuntu 12.04 and overlay scroll bars.
Avoid creating a Cairo context when measuring text on GTK+ as future versions of GTK+ may prohibit calling gdk_cairo_create except inside drawing handlers. This prohibition may be required on Wayland.
On Cocoa, the registerNotifyCallback method is now marked as deprecated so client code that uses it will display an error message. Client code should use the delegate mechanism or subclassing instead. The method will be removed in the next version.
On Cocoa, package Scintilla more in compliance with platform conventions. Only publish public headers in the framework headers directory. Only define the Scintilla namespace in Scintilla.h when compiling as C++. Use the Cocoa NS_ENUM and NS_OPTIONS macros for exposed enumerations. Hide internal methods from public headers. These changes are aimed towards publishing Scintilla as a module which will allow it to be used from the Swift programming language, although more changes will be needed here.
Fix crash in SciTE when stream comment performed at line end. Bug #1610.
For SciTE on Windows, display error message when common dialogs fail. Bug #156.
For SciTE on GTK+ fix bug with initialisation of toggle buttons in find and replace strips. Bug #1612.
There was also quite a bit of refactoring with fixed size strings and platform-dependent code eliminated or improved. "const" is used in more places. This should not affect Scintilla platform layers although the next round of refactoring to be performed after 3.4.4 is released will.

Hi,

I've tried the SciTE 3.4.4 but the version number at the Help/About SciTE
menu is still 3.4.3.

Cheers,
