IMPORTANT BUG FIX: CodeSnip v4.0 RC.2 released - fixes a nasty bug in RC.1 and betas
A nasty bug has been found in CodeSnip v4.0 release candidate 1 that has triggered the rush release of a patch, flagged as release candidate 2. This bug affects snippets which have duplicate display names and is largely caused by use of the Snippet | Duplicate Snippet menu option. It crashes CodeSnip's user interface and makes it fail on every re-start. The linked blog explains and gives links to fixes along with a fix if the bug has already struck.

CodeSnip v3.11.0 has been released. It adds supports for the Delphi XE3 compiler and fixes a couple of little UI bugs.
