I don't know if this has changed, but I lost a sketch before because the damn IDE doesn't autosave before compile... Unlike every other IDE I have ever used in my life.

Unlike every other IDE I have ever used in my life.Well I prefer the choice of saving or not. A lot of times I'm just playing with trying things on an existing sketch and have no intention of saving the results to the original sketch file. If I do want to keep the temporary changes I've made, it lets me do a save as so as not to change the original sketch file. I guess there is no perfect solution to meet everyone's needs, but auto anything can be a like living in a nanny state at times.

It could be usefull to have the option of activating an autosave, but simply saving when you're just experimenting could ruin an otherwise working sketch. Besides, if you compiled one of the examples and the ide tried to save it without asking, it would run into the read-only settings for root!
