  • Improved multi-file run support. CodeRunner 2 does a better job running multiple-file projects.
  • TextMate theme support. You can now use the popular TextMate theme format in CodeRunner 2.
  • Revamped templates. CodeRunner 2 features vastly improved template functionality, including multiple and dynamic templates. It's now super easy to create classes, document structures, etc.
  • Improved extendability. With CodeRunner 2, you can now import and export languages. This makes it easy to share your custom languages with others, or download languages from the web.
  • HTML and Browser JavaScript support. The console in CodeRunner 2 has a new web mode enabling support for HTML and DOM JavaScript. It even supports live preview of your document while it's being edited.
  • Text editing improvements. CodeRunner 2 contains many new text editing features, such as the symbol navigator, better indentation support, improved behavior under source control, word-completions and more.
  • Run statistics. You can now keep better track of your code while it's running. CodeRunner 2 displays live CPU and memory usage, in addition to spent CPU time once your code is finished running.
  • Bundled compilers. CodeRunner 2 now includes the compilers necessary for running C and C++ code, so you don't need to have Xcode installed for these languages.
  • Yosemite support. In addition to loads of UI enhancements, CodeRunner 2's look and feel now integrates seamlessly with OS X Yosemite.
