Umm I believe you are confusing two different Dev C++'s Orwells version which has just been updated and bloodsheds that has not been updated since 2005. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think I am.
Here is Bloodsheds website if you don't believe me http://www.bloodshed.net/
|Btw, the last update to bloodshed was Jan 2012|
Actually if was Feb 2005
Of if your talking about Orwell Dev C++ 220.127.116.11 it was December 2012
Bloodshed is no where near rocksolid... here are some reasons why.
Dev-C++ has not been updated since 2005, and is not currently maintained.
The software is very buggy. At the time of my writing there are 340 known bugs that will never be fixed.
It’s hard to get help, because the programming community have moved on to newer software.
Dev-C++ lacks features that are present in more modern solutions.
Code completion, intellisense, and proper debugging facilities (among others) are not provided. These tools can greatly improve the workflow and efficiency of an experienced programmer, and may aid the learning of beginners.
Error messages and the steps required to solve them are poorly documented compared to more modern solutions, and because most programmers have moved on from Dev-C++ it can be difficult (if not impossible) to find anyone who is able to help you. Some problems may not be able to be solved at all.
The compiler included with Dev-C++ is very out-dated, and buggy. An out-dated compiler can result in buggy and inefficient code, and may be damaging to the learning process for a beginner.
The provided “devpack” system is no longer supported by modern libraries. Using external libraries in Dev-C++ can be a confusing and difficult process for beginners who are expecting this simple system to handle it for them.
Again this all applies to Bloodshed version only, not Orwell's. I have not tryed Orwells yet but have heard good things about it.
