I'm glad you like Pepper. Feel free to spread the word.

> A few questions I have before jumping in:
> 1/ when opening the accelerator window with the mouse (Window>Accelerator), Accelerator opens but as soon as I move the mouse, it closes so I am unable to click on an item to select it. Now if I position the mouse where the Accelerator will appear, and I hit cmd-R, the Accelerator appears under the mouse and I am now able to select an item. Is this a bug ?

It's intentional but I think Jason is making it optional in the next release. I use Pepper 4.0.6 which leaves the accelerator open untill you select one of the items or press escape. I like this behaviour better and I think it's what you want too.

> 2/ Is there a restriction on unregistered Pepper ? The syntax highlighting for PHP does not work completely. For examples functions do not have the proper coloring. (like mysql_fetch_row or if). Same for the attributes in HTML and a few others (in fact they follow the color of "Tag" and not of "Attributes").

I haven't noticed these problems but it is likely a bug. I guess the list PHP functions needs to be updated.

> 3/ Is there a way to create new syntax highlighting for other languages ? (no need right now but...)

No, but this is a frequently requested feature.

> 4/ A french version ? (just to know, this is not problem)

I would like a Swedish version; the Windows version is available in German and Dutch so this would probably work for the Mac version too.

Happy Peppering,
