v 0.4 (29 May 2010)

  • Added: 'Fast enclose selection' command

  • Added: Word count
  • Added: a wiki page named EditExtensionsHelp is created when the plugin is first loaded

  • Fixed: 'Sentence case' now capitalizes the first alphabetical character of each line even when the line begins with no alphabetical characters
  • Changed: renamed 'Remove spaces' to 'Trim spaces'
  • Changed: rearranged some key bindings (see help)
