    The tool is provided with auto-update and auto-error-report.
    Both cannot be disabled as of now.

    We are actively seeking developers in the community! So if you capable of writing C# code, feel free to join this project.

    Additional note: Currently, a code-cleanup is silently being done to fix some minor issues, to fix "bad code" (boilerplate/spaghetti) and to implement a plugin system.

Engima released an updated version of his TypeSqf Editor on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    A script editor for SQF scripts. The most important features are:
    • Syntax checking
    • Syntax highlighting
    • Share and download community made content via the CPack service. (I named it CPack - in Visual Studio they call it Nugets).

    The TypeSQF editor along with its CPack system (for sharing content between script editors) makes it real simple to create missions, even for unexperienced programmers. The CPack system lets you inject other authors work into your mission, and the editor keeps track of the logic in your code, alerting you if something is erroneous or suspicious.

    • Added all script commands in Arma 3 version 1.68.
    • Significant CPU and memory performance optimizations.
    • Change the default value for setting "Enable foldigs" to false.
    • Added syntax highlighting for .sqm files.
    • Analyzer improvements and bugfixes.
    • SQX: Fixed: Analyzer reporting all kinds of errors if compiled file is added to the project.

The acemod released an updated ACE3 version on the BI forums.
The changelog is very long and can be found on our downloadpage.
They have also updated their compatibility addons to match the newest ACE version.

    Quote :
    This mod is entirely open-source (we are hosted on GitHub), and everyone is free to propose changes or maintain their own, customized version as long as they make their changes open to the public in accordance with the GNU General Public License.

    ACE3 is built modularly, thus a team can maintain its own tailored version, excluding a select number of components that they don't like, or which conflict with other addons. Larger components themselves, like the medical system and other core features also include various customization options, allowing mission designers and communities to tweak the overall experience.
