  • Sample sdk/samples/ideas/grid/grid.htm is fully operational now plus:
    • column-resizer
    • row sorting.
  • Fixes with position:absolute elements positioning.
  • Instead of min-intrinsic/max-intrinsic length values the engine uses min-content and max-content. CSS3 tends to use these names. min-intrinsic and max-intrinsic are and will be recoginized.

  • Fix of Element.scrollTo() method.
  • sdk/samples/ideas/virtual-list/ sample is operational now. See screenshot on the right.

Sciter v.2.0.0.13 screenshot

New stuff:

  • New DOM Inspector in sciter.exe demo project (sdk/demos/sciter). DOM Inspector also contains log messages viewer with file/location hyperlinks. Click on them will popup notepad2.exe with caret set to position in the file where problem is found.
  • CSS: added support of text-shadow property. Not perfect but works. Perfect implementation should use ID2D1Effect & co. But that is not on W7 yet.
  • Various bug fixes.
