ANNOUNCE: jed 0.97-14 released

Post by John E. Dav » Tue, 30 Apr 1996 04:00:00



Version 0.97-14 of the jed programmer's text editor has been released.  It
is available from ftp://space.mit.edu/pub/davis/jed/ as well as the
European mirror ftp://ftp.uni-stuttgart.de/pub/unix/misc/slang/.  For MSDOS
and MS Windows users, pre-compiled jed binaries are available in
jed09714.zip.  

The C mode is better than ever with support for indenting preprocessor
lines.  In addition, this version features the ability to undo what `undo'
has un-done (redo).  The HTML mode is more powerful and easier to use.  The
emacs emulation has also been improved.  See the list of changes below.

Finally, if you have your own editor extensions, be sure to read changes.txt
because new functions are available and a few have been renamed.  In
addition, some Xjed resources have also been renamed.  See jed/doc/xjed.txt
for more information.

Here is a partial list of jed features:

   *  Color syntax highlighting on color terminals, e.g., Linux console or a
        remote color terminal via dialup (as well as Xjed).
   *  Emulation of Emacs, EDT, Wordstar, and Brief editors.

        +  The GNU Emacs emulation is perhaps the best emulation of Emacs by
           any non GNU Emacs editor available.

   *  Extensible in a language resembling C.  Completely customizable.
   *  Capable of read GNU info files from within JED's info browser
   *  A variety of programming modes (with syntax highlighting) are
      available including C, C++, FORTRAN, TeX, HTML, SH, IDL, DCL, NROFF...
   *  Edit TeX files with AUC-TeX style editing (BiBTeX support too).
   *  Asynchronous subprocess support.
   *  Built-in support for the GPM mouse driver on Linux console.
   *  Abbreviation mode and Dynamic abbreviation mode.
   *  Also compiles and runs under VMS, OS/2, MSDOS, MS Windows.
   *  8 bit clean with mutekey support.
   *  Rectangular cut/paste; regular expressions; incremental searches;
        search replace across multiple files; multiple windows; multiple
        buffers; shell modes; directory editor (dired); mail; rmail; ispell;
        and much, much more.

Changes since 0.97-13
   0. Some intrinsic functions have been renamed:
        whatmode --> what_mode
        setmode --> set_mode

   1. New functions:

        verror, vmessage  : These take a variable number of arguments in
          vinsert              Sprintf style
        _stk_roll         : rolls the stack
        strchop, strchopr : Chops up a string into substrings
        del_eol           : delete to end of line
        del_through_eol   : delete through end of line
        pop_mark_0        : equiv to pop_mark(0)
        pop_mark_1        : equiv to pop_mark(1)
        go_left_1         : equiv to go_left(1)
        go_right_1        : equiv to go_right (1)
        ffind_char        : like ffind but search for char
        bfind_char        :  
        fsearch_char      :
        bsearch_char      :
        bol_bsearch_char  :
        bol_fsearch_char  :

      For details, see the online documentation.

   2. narrow_to_region, widen_region:  These are similar to the functions
      `narrow' and `widen' except that these actually delimit editing to a
      region.

   3. undo now has redo.  See doc/undo.txt.

   4. In C and SLang modes, the TAB key also adjusts the indentation of
      preprocessor directives.  The variable C_Preprocess_Indent controls
      the amount of indentation.  By default, it is 1.

   5. XJed specific: the resource names have been changed to conform more
      closely with other programs.  In particular, XJed must be changed to
      xjed in your .Xdefaults file because XJed now uses the XTerm class.

   6. Emacs-like insert/copy-to register operations added.  The actual
      functions are called `reg_insert_register' (Ctrl-X G) and
      `reg_copy_to_register' (Ctrl-X X).  These functions are not available
      on 16 bit systems.
