  • It is possible to set a number of py files to be executed at startup, in the new Imports preferences panel.
  • The main window's state (size, location, maximized state) is remembered among HIPE sessions, so it is not necessary to set it after every startup.
  • Check of local pool locks (probably left from a previous session that was abnormally terminated) is executed at startup. This check is configurable in preferences.
  • The running Java version is compared with the supported one; if they are different, a warning is popped up. This check can be enabled or disabled at will, in preferences.
