Changes:

  • fix : problems with files (changed outside LEd) reload

LEd's future

2009–04–03

After a few years of inventing LEd we have arrived to the moment, in which we must change the model of LEd's development and distribution. Unfortunately, due to the lack of time, we are not able to maintain the editor for free. Our intention is to keep LEd living (and free for basic use), so:

  1. LEd in a standard version (equivalent to the actual release) will be free. We will try to fix bugs and add support for new TeX distributions (e.g., MiKTeX, TeXLive). Also some small improvements will be implemented in this version. A new release of LEd should be ready approximately in a month.
  2. Significant new functionalities (e.g., wizards, support for CVS, built-in PDF viewer, built-in BibTeX editor) will be distributed as plugins and will be payable.
  3. Maybe also a professional version will be developed, in which some plugins will be integrated.
