As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file. See also the last Fossies "Diffs" side-by-side code changes report for "NEWS": 3.1.2_vs_3.2.0.

    3 3.2.0 2019-09-30
    4 
    5   * Macros: They now work across multiple documents. You can cancel macro
    6     recording, and append new recorded commands to your current macro.
    7 
    8   * New documents inherit their predecessor's current macro, search, and
    9     replace strings.
   10 
   11   * Saving of read-only documents requires confirmation.
   12 
   13   * Word completion now does not consider the word the cursor is currently
   14     in, which helps in disambiguating.
   15 
   16   * The option -h is now an alias for --help. Thanks to Lonnie Abelbeck for
   17     implementing this feature.
   18 
   19   * Add asterisk.jsf syntax.
   20 
   21   * FIND in string inputs brings up a requester with your input history.
   22     Use Enter to replace, TAB to insert into your input line; Escape to exit.
   23 
   24   * Enhanced commands: MoveEOW, NextWord, and PrevWord can now move to either
   25     end of the indicated word via optional '<' and '>' parameter modifiers.
   26 
   27   * Requesters make better use of white space.
   28 
   29 3.1.2 2018-10-06
   30 
   31   * RepeatLast now accepts "Find" or "Replace" after its optional number so
   32     you can explicitly repeat either operation even if the other was most
   33     recently performed.
   34 
   35   * We now use the xenl property to detect whether we can write on the last
   36     column of the last line, thus making the status bar complete.
   37 
   38 3.1.1 2017-06-04
   39 
   40   * You can now CloseDoc (^Q) unmodified documents from within the
   41     SelectDoc (F4) requester.
   42 
   43 3.1.0 2017-04-29
   44 
   45   * Large files that do not fit into memory are memory-mapped transparently
   46     if enough disk space is available.
   47 
   48   * Determine a "virtual extension" based on document contents and patterns
   49     from ~/.ne/.extensions. Allows overrides of specified extensions only.
   50     If no match, use .default#ap prefs.
   51 
   52   * Status flag "!" indicates the last line of document is not empty, thus
   53     the last line of the resulting saved file will not be terminated.
   54 
   55   * Requesters by default no longer remove non-matching entries as you
   56     enter characters. Use Insert or Delete keys within a requester
   57     to toggle between these behaviors.
   58 
   59   * Documents loaded through file requesters now have relative instead of
   60     absolute paths.
   61 
   62   * New NameConvert command (NC for short) changes current document's file
   63     name from relative to absolute path or absolute to relative path.
   64 
   65   * "SetBookmark ?" and "GotoBookmark ?" now prompt for the bookmark you
   66     want to set/goto. The prompt also indicates which bookmarks are set.
   67 
   68   * Command line option "--read-only" opens next document in read-only mode.
   69 
   70   * Options "--read-only" and "+N,M" can be applied to piped input:
   71       ls -l | ne --read-only +3,5 -
   72 
   73   * Warn if SaveAs would overwrite an existing file.
   74 
   75   * Suspend (Crtl-Z) works in prompts, requesters.
   76 
   77   * "KeyCode" now takes optional parameter.
   78 
   79   * Immediately/only after "Not Found", RepeatLast wraps around to the
   80     other end of the document.
   81 
   82 3.0  2015-06-18
   83 
   84   * ne is now fully 64-bit, and needs to be compiled by a C99-compliant
   85     compiler. Files can be of any size, provided that enough core memory
   86     is available.
   87 
   88   * ne is able to read from named pipes. You can even pipe content into
   89     ne: it will be opened as the first document.
   90 
   91   * It is now possible to interrupt searches (it used to be possible just
   92     to interrupt global replace actions).
   93 
   94   * Word wrap has been reverted to pre-2.5: it preserves just whitespace,
   95     and it doesn't reparagraph at each line split or join. Paragraph keeps
   96     the usual smart features preserving comments, etc.
   97 
   98 2.6  2015-04-17
   99 
  100   * Requesters (filenames, help, autocompletions, etc.) do progressive
  101     "fuzzy match" by typed characters, backspace.
  102 
  103   * Document requester (F4) opens with cursor on the current document.
  104     Docs with unsaved changes are bold, flagged with "*". F2/F3 reorder
  105     documents.
  106 
  107   * Tab in Syntax command displays requester of extant syntax recognizers.
  108 
  109   * You can now use AutoComplete in command line prompts.
  110 
  111   * New SaveAll command saves all modified documents.
  112 
  113   * Warns before saving over a file that was modified since the buffer was
  114     last loaded or saved.
  115 
  116   * `' joins (), {}, [], and <> as character pairs known to MatchBracket.
  117 
  118   * New example macros: aspell, DeleteSOL.
  119 
  120   * Add % to special leading characters for re-wrapping Paragraphs.
  121 
  122   * WordWrap no longer waits for the cursor to hit the right margin; it wraps
  123     on insertions and deletions now.
  124 
  125   * Updates to ruby, erb, python, conf, many other syntax recognizers.
  126     Added these recognizers from the Joe project: ant batch
  127     classic_pascal comment_todo csharp debian differences elixir erlang
  128     git-commit go haml htmlerb ini iptables js json md powershell pp
  129     prolog properties sieve typescript whitespace yaml
  130 
  131 2.5  2012-12-24
  132 
  133   * New DelTabs flag, function separated from Tabs flag.
  134 
  135   * Reformatting with the Paragraph command is now aware of common
  136     leading characters used in comments: > # / * and spaces.
  137 
  138   * WordWrap preserves leading characters identically to Paragraph.
  139 
  140 2.4  2012-04-10
  141 
  142   * New Shift command indents/outdents selected lines.
  143 
  144   * Recorded macros preserve comments; indicate other included macros.
  145 
  146   * New AtomicUndo command groups changes to be undone/redone as a group
  147     instead of individually.
  148 
  149   * For commands that have key bindings, Help displays them.
  150 
  151   * New syntax highlighting for texinfo files.
  152   
  153 2.3  2011-10-28
  154 
  155   * Takes 'SEQ "sequence" KEYCODE' in ~/.ne/.keys to bind character
  156     sequences to key codes.
  157 
  158 2.2  2011-01-23
  159 
  160   * Now ne is distributed under the GPLv3.
  161 
  162   * Added AutoMatchBracket mode to indicate visible matching of
  163     {}, (), [], <> pairs. Mode is 1 (brightness) by default.
  164 
  165   * Bookmarks now remember/restore their vertical offsets in the window.
  166 
  167   * Bookmark commands take -1/+1 to cycle through your bookmarks;
  168     Use "UnsetBookmark *" to unset all bookmarks.
  169 
  170   * New --binary command line option loads next listed file in binary mode.
  171     May appear multiple times on the command line.
  172 
  173   * +[N[,M]] command line option moves to N-th line, M-th column of next file loaded.
  174     May appear multiple times on the command line.
  175 
  176   * Mention http://groups.google.com/group/niceeditor in splash screen.
  177 
  178   * About now displays splash screen in addition to its status bar message.
  179 
  180   * In FastGUI mode, when highlighting menu items the cursor is now
  181     positioned on the border of the menu rather than on the first letter
  182     of menu items.
  183 
  184   * New "tabs" syntax definition makes tabs visibly distinct from spaces.
  185 
  186   * Recognize C99 integer types from <stdint.h> and highlight accordingly.
  187 
  188 2.1  2010-03-17
  189 
  190   * New commands: KeyCode, DeleteNextWord, DeletePrevWord, AutoComplete,
  191     InsertTab, Tabs, RequestOrder.
  192 
  193   * Now we set the syntax when a file is saved with a (different) name.
  194 
  195   * Now we correctly highlight control characters in the command line.
  196 
  197   * Display request lists by columns ("RequestOrder 1") or rows ("RequestOrder 0").
  198 
  199   * Allow window resizing during requests (file selection, help, AutoComplete).
  200 
  201   * Sort filenames in dictionary order ("aa", "Ab", "ac", ...).
  202 
  203   * Enter in Help places you on the right command in the command list.
  204 
  205   * Only prompt once about identical filenames on startup.
  206 
  207   * Consider "_" as a word character for word-oriented commands.
  208 
  209   * Built-in filename extension to syntax mapping updates:
  210     dtx -> tex, latex -> tex,  sage -> python.
  211 
  212   * Include new txt2tags syntax file from http://txt2tags.sourceforge.net/
  213 
  214   * Replace reports the number of replacements (again).
  215 
  216   * Display the global directory on startup even if it is not found.
  217   
  218   * Default global directory changed from /usr/local/lib/ne to /usr/local/share/ne.
  219 	
  220   * Aborting an OpenNew doesn't leave you in a new blank document.
  221 
  222   * AdjustView now takes optional number of lines or columns to
  223     adjust by; swapped meaning of AdjustView 'C' and 'M' parameters.
  224 
  225   * Read .keys and possibly .menus files from NE_GLOBAL_DIR on startup.
  226 
  227   * More defensive reading of lines/columns from terminfo to avoid crashes
  228     with XTerm on Mac OS X.
  229 
  230   * More portable and robust window-size change detection.
  231 
  232   * More parsimonious status-bar updates.
  233 
  234   * StatusBar, FastGUI, VerboseMacros, and RequestOrder are not buffer specific, are
  235     only saved in ~/.ne/.default#ap.
  236 
  237   * Current syntax name is buffer specific; only saved in autoprefs, not ~/.ne/.default#ap.
  238 
  239   * The Amiga is officially no longer supported (well, not exactly an
  240     improvement...).
