Visual Assist build 2086 is available

Visual Assist build 2086 arrives less than a month after build 2083, in time for the holidays. If all goes well, this will be our last build of 2015.

The most noteworthy change in build 2086 is a reorganized options dialog. The mechanics of the dialog haven’t changed and the individual settings remain; we simply arranged the settings into more logical groups.

We launched the original options dialog more than a decade ago. Since then, we have added settings to existing panes when room was available, and added new panes when squeezed for space or when introducing entirely new groups of settings. We appreciate that unnecessary change is frustrating so we refrained from a reorganization until its value outweighed the value of retaining the disorder.

For new users, the reorganized options dialog makes perfect sense. For existing users, we believe any initial angst will lead quickly to sighs of relief.

Browse the options dialog so you are familiar with it when you need to find a specific setting.

Other improvements in build 2086 include the ability to assign Shift+Right-Click in the text editor, and a smaller memory footprint during initial parsing of solutions.
