Regular readers will know that I’m a fan of the light-weight TeXworks editor. It keeps the user interface pared down, letting both new and experienced users focus on their input, whilst at the same time having lots of handy features.

Steffan Löffler has recently released v0.63 of TeXworks, and despite the minor version change (from v0.62), there’s quite a lot of new stuff. Highlights for me are

  • Basic support for BibTeX, including a new menu entry to insert citations into sources
  • More granular SyncTeX sypport, making it easier to go backward and forward from source to PDF
  • Re-written syntax highlighting, addressing some of the long-standing issues TeXworks has had with longer sources
  • Improved syntax patterns and keyword completion lists (both from me!)
