Dolphin Smalltalk X6 says goodbye to the old Rich Text Editor control which was used for editing Smalltalk source code in previous versions. We have now adopted an entirely new control based on the Scintilla programmers' editor. This new editor is lightning fast and has fewer quirks than the original Microsoft control. Scintilla provides the basic editor functionality but the additional Smalltalk programming gives us some great new features, such as:

IntelliSense style auto completion when typing in the method editor or any workspace.
Dynamic syntax highlighting in all workspaces directly as you type.
Dynamic reporting of Smalltalk syntax errors (squiggly underlines), again, directly as you type.
