So after fretting for long & causing much delay, finally I couldn’t keep it any longer. Presenting the Preview of iG:Syntax Hiliter v2.0, the only syntax hiliter plugin for WordPress 1.2 thats multilingual. ๐Ÿ˜€
Don’t look suspiciously at me, the Preview is just a figure of speech, to emphasise the fact that it still is lacking some features that I wanted in v2.0 which I’ll sort out shortly. Also, the new version of GeSHi is around the corner, so it’ll be there in the final release of iG:Syntax Hiliter v2.0.

Ok, that’s the explanation of naming it the v2.0 Preview, but what about the changes & new stuff in it? ๐Ÿ˜•

Well, as I already mentioned a month ago, I’d created a language file for ASP, so this release is ASP enabled. Auto formatting is disabled for posts that contain the iG:Syntax Hiliter tags, so your code is ready for copy-paste operations & this release also has GeSHi 1.0.1 core behind it which has some bug fixes & new methods. ๐Ÿ˜€

Another feature that is being introduced is the line numbering by using Ordered Lists(<OL>) making the code easy to copy-paste(thanks Rich for the suggestion). ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve had to hack the GeSHi core file quite a bit to get this feature going but the new version of GeSHi will have this feature built in(finally Oracle, the GeSHi developer, agreed with me on this, no need to apologise Oracle). ๐Ÿ˜‰

There’s a known issue where multiline comments in CSS, PHP & JAVA are not highlighted correctly. This will be fixed in the final version.

Enough of my blabbing. You can download the iG:Syntax Hiliter v2.0 Preview immediately. ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Coding!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
