may i suggest a simple (and and may be stupid) algorithm of detecting links an e-mails in text

everything between "www." and nearest space is a link
"www.gsdfg5398yadf';[p=-0789789" is a link

and

everything between "http://" and nearest space is a link too
"http://546gfsdfgh\=45dsd48354.dsfsdf`e3" is a link

e-mail a little bit harder...
space, some symbols(not empty), "@", some symbols(not empty), ".", some symbols(not empty), space

so "8gd]\=\-@g]768.\=-=-" will be an e-mail address (not very good but simple and fast to fix a bug)

hlop4ik, thanks for trying to help!
Unfortunately your algorithm won't work correctly in the following situations:
sample text sample text (http://cintanotes.com), sample sample
sample text http://link.com, sample sample
sample cintanotes.com sample

Actually only a minor tweak to the regex is needed for emails to be highlighted correctly.
A little bit more work is needed to actually open a mail client when URL is without the "mailto:" prefix. But it is also straightforward.
So this will be fixed in the next update.
