  • Internationalization support
  • Customizable shortcuts


  • Warning/error for changed environment variables used in a project configuration file
  • "Hidden" clusters in libraries, clusters that are not accessible if the library is used (like libraries in libraries are not accessible).
  • Clean up "inheritance" rules for project settings (e.g. assertion levels of libraries)
  • Addition of binary and octal notation for manifest integers


  • Clean up delivery, names of tools, directory layout.
  • Get rid of *.wb files and store this in the user settings.
