Release Notes

A new preview is here! It should have been a small update to the last preview, but it turned out quite big, even though there's only a single new feature.

I ported over my tab expansion code, originally included with PowerShell Community Extensions, so if you plan to use PSCX with BGShell, please disable the PSCX TabExpansion function. You can, of course, try to use any other tab expansion -- I think the BGShell TabExpansion interface should be quite similar to that of PowerShell.exe.

Apart from that, I've done a ton of polishing work, have fixed number of bugs and minor UI glitches (not all of them are listed as work items), and completely overhauled the interaction between UI and the PowerShell runspace. There are no more blocking calls when retrieving history or tab expansions, and only currently visible text is syntax-highlighted. Therefore the UI should stay pretty responsive at all times, even after pasting few thousand lines of code. There is also a number of small improvements to the existing data tip popups.
