Early release of ForthTerm version 3.0 2020-07-01


This article contains links to download an early release of version 3.0 of the ForthTerm terminal program. ForthTerm version 3.0 should run on all newer version of windows (win7, win8, win8.1, win10). ForthTerm version 3.0 is available for both win32 and win64 based systems. Until there is a stable release I will update this article with the most recent versions.

New Features and bug fixes:

  1. Fixed issue with app freezing when closed while com port active and receiving steady data.
  2. Fixed issue with hi DPI settings, style now works on 4K display.
  3. Added 74880 baud for ESP8266 devices. NOTE: baud rate saved in config will be wrong, you must set baud rate on first use of new version.
  4. Added new forth key word list used by syntax highlighter.
  5. Optimizations added to improve screen rendering in terminal.
  6.  Added ability to support local echo mode in terminal.
  7.  Added support to sync block editor to code editor without file saves being synchronized.  
  8. FTP save and load of editor file  added.
  9. FTP client now saves its connection settings.
  10. Fixed focus issue with find and replace dialogs, find dialog replaced by panel
  11. Split setting folder, moved application resource files to the ProgramData folder.
  12. Key map dialog save and load command now default to correct folder.
  13. Added Utf8 support, and local echo to the terminal

NOTE: when used on a high DPI screen you must set the program style to "Windows". The other possible styles are not working on high DPI monitors.

NOTE: The FTP client was added to support the my MV4th32 Raspberry PI bare metal Forth (still a work in progress).

NOTE: The current setup program will overwrite your current settings with default settings. If you want to keep your old setting you must save a copy of the configuration file "C:\Users\my name\AppData\Roaming\ForthTerm\Config\ForthTerm.config", where "my name" is your windows user name. You may also want to save any terminal key mapping files in the folder "C:\Users\my name\AppData\Roaming\ForthTerm\Key Maps\".

You should uninstall any old version of ForthTerm before installing the new version.
