Orwell Dev-C++ is a full-featured Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the C/C++ programming language. It uses Mingw port of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) as its compiler. It creates native Win32 executables, either console or GUI. Orwell Dev-C++ can also be used in combination with Cygwin.

- Syntax highlighting
- Code completion
- Shows information about code when hovering above code
- Provides user-editable shortcuts and tools
- GPROF profiling
- GDB debugging
- Devpak IDE extensions
What is new in this release:
- Fixed a few high priority bugs in 5.9.1.
- Changed Format Current File shortcut from Shift+F to Shift+Ctrl+A.
- Removed/Changed all default Alt+(Key) shortcuts because they interfere with Alt menu navigation.
- Assigned some new default shortcuts like Ctrl+B (Open Containing Folder) and F2 (Rename File).
- Fixed Show Makefile being executable when no compiler set is configured.
What is new in version 5.8.3:
- Slightly decreased flicker during editor opening.
- Makefiles are now highlighted as if they are source files.
- Opening braces after a 'default' keyword are now completed correctly.
- Fixed a bug in NewFunctionFrm and NewVarFrm that caused crashes (thank you for reporting).
- Rewritten ancient source code of devcppPortable.exe. It is now immune to overflows due to arguments of length more than 400.
- Fixed a bug in TCppParser that caused it to ignore project include paths.
- Fixed a crash in TCppTokenizer due to spaces before #include in combination with comments after the or "file" part (like " #include // bar").
What is new in version 5.8.2:
- Fixed bug in procedure TMainForm.EditorSaveTimer that corrupted the editor views.
- Updated provided commit command.
What is new in version 5.8.0:
- Added support for two file views next to each other.
- All windows are now opened at the centre of the main window instead of at random places across random monitors.
- Slightly improved performance of the function tooltip.
- Fixed a bug in makefile creation of C DLL's that prevented compilation (no DEF problems anymore).
- When compiling, header files are now treated separately from other files.
- Removed CVS support. CVS is considered deprecated, we recommend using explorer based code managers for alternatives like Git or SVN.
- Removed MinGW from default builds due to lack of reason to use it and generally inferior stability. At this point in time, there is no reason to use MinGW instead of TDM-GCC (which is based on MinGW64): both support 32bit compiling, but TDM has much more features, takes up less disk space and generates less crashes.
- Fixed a crash in the file change monitor code (this represented 70% of all crashes; guess what, it was an off-by-one error)
