LEd version 0.50 beta is released

Postby wenbin » Fri Feb 02, 2007 12:53 pm

LEd version 0.50 beta is released.

LEd (LaTeX Editor) is a free environment for rapid TeX/LaTeX document processing. Our main goal in developing the editor is to make the process of TeX/LaTeX document production easier thanks to the integration of the most helpful tools into one application.

LEd can be used with any TeX distribution, however its full functionality is available with a distribution based on TeXLive or MiKTeX. LEd has been tested to work correctly with:

TeXLive 6,
TeXLive 7,
TeXLive 2003,
TeXLive 2004,
TeXLive 2005,
MiKTeX 2.4,
MiKTeX 2.5.

The LeD webpage ( says
What has been done recently?

LEd version 0.50 beta build 6081 is available at the download page.

fix : problem with commenting,
fix : missed resource file for beamer toolbar.

LEd version 0.50 beta is available at the download page.

new : tracking changes in edited document,
new : shortcuts management,
new : support for MiKTeX 2.5,
new : beamer toolbar,
new : read-only files support,
new : DVI viewer support for MiKTeX 2.5,
new : drafting triangle in DVI viewer,
imp : LEd starts faster,
fix : problem with labels,
fix : shortcuts in user commands,
fix : some small bugs.

The desing of our Web page was also changed.

I wonder, what the new feature "tracking changes in edited document" means.
When I edit a document, LeD only shows marks on the left of the document, which mean that the line has changed.
I cannot find a "track changes" feature like in LyX or Word, which I consider as a killer feature since it would make group work much more easier.

If that line has been changed, there will be a color bar next to the line number.. however, when you save it and reopen it, it won't be there. Confused

I wanted to use it with MikTeX 2.4 and it always closed itself when using the following functions:

* Open a .tex-document
* Save a .tex-document

That makes it difficult to work with that program. Can you help me? What's the reason for this? My operating System is Win XP.

Hi emes,

MikTeX Version 2.4 is quite old, that's why I recommend to update to a newer version like 2.7, perhaps the LEd is working then.
With 2.4 you might encounter more problems for instance with its package manager and packages in lzma format.

Another idea: try disabling the dvi viewer, I 've heard LEd may crash with dvi viewer activated with MiKTeX 2.6 or below.
