Announcing Leo 4.8 release candidate 1

Leo 4.8 rc1 is now available here.

Leo is a text editor, data organizer, project manager and much more. Look here for more information.

The highlights of Leo 4.8

Leo now uses the simplest possible sentinel lines in external files. External files with sentinels now look like Emacs org-mode files.

Leo Qt gui now supports Drag and Drop. This was one of the most frequently requested features.

Improved abbreviation commands. You now define abbreviations in Leo settings nodes, not external files.

@url nodes may contain url's in body text. This allows headlines to contain summaries: very useful.

Leo now uses PyEnchant to check spelling.

Leo can now open multiple files from the command line.

Leo's ancient Tangle and Untangle commands are now deprecated. This will help newbies how to learn Leo.

Leo now shows "Resurrected" and "Recovered" nodes. These protect data and show how data have changed. These fix several long-standing data-related problems.

A new "screenshots" plugin for creating slide shows with Leo. I used this plugin to create Leo's introductory slide shows.

A better installer.

Many bug fixes.
