Changes - Version 220.127.116.11 - 2 Oktober 2012
- Searching is now done forward instead of backward by default
- Search history is remembered while Dev-C++ is opened instead of while the find window is opened.
- Fixed a bug in CPU window that causes Dev-C++ to consume an infinite amount of memory
- Dev-C++ now checks if there are any compilers installed before attempting to use them, avoiding crashes.
- One can now view project information like total lines in the File Properties window.
- Rewritten the code that reads profiling output, drastically reducing flicker.
- One can now use copy in the file properties form.
- This version has GCC built-in instead of being an aditional package. It also contains, among others, D3D9/10/11, GDI, Win32 and OpenGL headers and libraries in that flavor.
- For ultimate portable programming, please launch devcppPortable.exe located in the installation folder of the portable version. This launcher will tell Dev-C++ to save its configuration files in the same folder as the executable.
- If you're getting 'Unsupported compression method' errors when extracting the portable version, please update your archiving program. The archive uses LMZA2 compression, which was added to WinRAR 3.91 and 7zip 9.04 somwhere in 2009. The latter is just as free as Dev-C++, so nothing is holding you back to extract it.
- The setup which includes MinGW32 4.7.0 can be downloaded here (25MB).
- The setup which includes TDM-GCC x64 4.6.1 can be downloaded here (35MB).
- The setup which does not include a compiler can be downloaded here (2MB).
- The portable version which includes MinGW32 4.7.0 can be downloaded here (15MB).
- The portable version which includes TDM-GCC x64 4.6.1 can be downloaded here (25MB).
- The portable version which does not include a compiler can be downloaded here (2MB).
- Separate compilers can be downloaded here.
- Lastly, the source code can be found here (1MB).
All editions can run on 32-bit Windows.
All Dev-C++ editions can be updated using the No Compiler setups/zips.
The 18.104.22.168 RC2 update can be found here. Its source code can be found here.
Choosing between 32bit and 64bit
- The 64bit compiler will also run op 32bit computers. Not problem at all.
- The 64bit compiler can do everything the 32bit compiler can, including creating standard 32bit executables.
- The 64bit compiler can do stuff the 32bit compiler can't, like creating 64bit executables. It also comes with a lot more headers and libraries.
- There is no single reason to download the 32bit version except for maybe file size, marginally longer compiling time, or in case you have to use that specific compiler for any reason (regression problems for example).
- To force 32bit on all new projects and non-project compiles, go to Tools >> Compiler Options and select the 'TDM-GCC 32bit' profile. This profile will pass -m32 and use lib32 by default.
- To force 32bit on already created projects, go to Project >> Project Options >> Compiler and select the 'TDM-GCC 32bit' compiler profile.
