Leo 4.7.1 final                    February 26, 2010

Leo 4.7.1 final is now available at:

Leo 4.7.1 fixes a dangerous bug in Leo 4.7. When converting file-like
sentinels to thin-like sentinels in an external file, Leo now issues a
warning and sets the corresponding @file node dirty. This ensures that
Leo will write the converted external file and .leo file together,
making it impossible to lose data.

Leo is a text editor, data organizer, project manager and much more.

The highlights of Leo 4.7:

- Leo now uses the simplest possible internal data model.
  This is the so-called "one-node" world.
- Leo supports Python 3.x.
- Leo requires Python 2.6 or above.
- Several important improvements in file handling.
    - Leo converts @file nodes to @thin nodes automatically.
    - Leo creates a 'Recovered Nodes' node to hold data that
      otherwise might be lost due to clone conflicts.
    - @auto-rst now works much more reliably reliably.
    - Leo no longer supports @noref trees.  Such trees are not
      reliable in cooperative environments.
- A new Windows installer.
- Many other features, including new command line options and new
- Dozens of bug fixes.
