Version 2.5.7 42.0 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

Changes in 2.5.7:

  • Improved the way percent signs can be escaped. You can now specify either "%%" or "\%" to get a literal percent character.

Changes in 2.5.6:

  • Added the capability to specify access-key accelerators for custom format context menu items. Existing custom formats will have no key assigned; you must manually set them if upgrading from a previous version.

  • Replaced the default FuseTalk custom format with the somewhat more prevalent Markdown format.

Version 2.5.5 41.0 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

  • Added a new custom format variable for inserting tab characters (%B)
