Important updates about Code Snippet Studio

I have just updated Code Snippet Studio to version 1.3.9 with a couple major changes, both in the tool and in the project vision.

Feature updates

First, the new version includes an option to change the foreground color in the code editor, both in normal and selected state. You simply use the color pickers like this:

Here I have used the ColorPicker control from Syncfusion's Essential Studio for WPF, yet Community License. If you have installed version 1.3.8, you might have noticed the availability of a third picker to change the background color for text selection. In 1.3.9, I decided to remove this because it was unstable and required VS to be restarted, and it did not fit well with color selection with Roslyn analysis.

I have also updated themes according to the latest Theme controls in Essential Studio, where I decided to remove themes based on Visual Studio 2013 and Office 2013 and use the new Visual Studio 2015 and Office 2016 themes.

Project decisions

I have decided to maintain and update (on regular basis and based on the community feedback) only the extension for Visual Studio, which has reached more than 7500 downloads. This means I won't be updating or maintaining the stand-alone version anymore.

As usual, submit your comments and issues on GitHub.
