I'm often use 'script creator' to test own ideas and scripts from here. Very helpfull, especcially tha I can run test from here. So I have some suggestions:
1. syntax highlight - very helpfull for easy script reading, so as colors were used in IRC, think it's not so hard to implement this, may be I'm wrong.
2. when I add function through menu it allways paste at the end of the script, instead at cursor position - it's not very convenient
3. if you'll add command - 'run with terminal' (user can add preferable terminal program in options) it will be easy to see what happens on script execution.

and one thing for plugins in general - to check for new versions on start or during POL execution like with the main program.

Hello and thanks for using my software,

So for the syntax highlight it's my priority for the 1.0 version of POLSC.

For the second question i think i can make that for the 0.4 which will appear in few days.

For the third question i will try to make it, but i'm not sure, i'm prudent with this things.

Finally for updates, i make it for the 0.4. That's sure this time ;)

Thanks for your suggestions, i will make all i can do.

PS : Sorry for the poor english ^^ If you see some faults please tell me.

POLSC 0.4 is out (just a French news for the moment).

In order to make scripting easy you could allow us to make translations. Like: launcher/lançador

I mean, translations in the code part so that even beginners (e.g. dummies) can do it as well.
I guess you already did that with French language.

Thank you. =D

Yes i'm gonna to translate it. For the next version i will use Qt rather than wxWidgets, so it can take a moment, but i think POLSC will be very useful after that.

The version 1.0 will be translate so...

Thanks for your fidelity.
