I am pleased to announce the new version of Crisp - release 4.1.
For folks not familiar with it, Crisp is a BRIEF compatible text editor on
Unix and Windows platforms which by its power and ease of use set a
standard, that prompted Unix World to rate it as the 'editor to beat'.
Crisp 4.1 is a major milestone in the history of Crisp, in terms of the user
interface and powerful features. It can be safely stated that Crisp 4.1
now offers a true blend of an extremely intuitive user interface with a very
powerful feature set. Crisp 4.1 has the ease of use, usually associated with
Windows based word processor.
Version 4.1 has so many new features that it is difficult to list all of them.

this feature is really useful and has a delayed floating help making it
extremely intuitive and user friendly.

one see keywords, strings, comments etc. in different colors, underlined,
bolded etc. Support is provided for the following languages: Ada, Basic,
C, C++, Cobol, Fortran, Lisp, Pascal, Shell, Verilog, Ingres-Win4gl,
