Major New Features in Epsilon 13

  • Epsilon now supports Mac OS X in both terminal and X11 modes, in an implementation distributed as an application bundle that supports drag-and-drop installation.

  • Modes for XML and HTML have been extensively enhanced. They now support smart indenting and embedded CSS and Python scripting. And they automatically highlight matching and mismatched tags.

  • A new context-sensitive help feature provides help on language keywords using flexible mode-based rules.

  • Epsilon now prompts for SCP passwords and passphrases, automatically restarts disconnected SCP jobs, and detects when an SCP URL names a directory. Grep and completion now work on ftp:// filenames.

  • A new browse-symbol command provides an enhanced interface to the source code browser database generated by Microsoft compilers.

  • Epsilon can now display misspelled words as you edit. In programming language modes, it marks only words in comments and strings. (Modes can easily customize this.) Epsilon also offers suggestions for correcting these misspellings, either using its own guessing algorithm or one of several external programs. It maintains per-file, per-directory, per-mode, and global ignore lists. A traditional spell-buffer-or-region command and a spell-grep command to list all misspelled words are also available.

  • The new align-region command makes it easy to have various language elements line up into columns.

  • The new compare-to-prior-version command shows what changes you've made in the current editing session.

  • The new undo-movements and redo-movements commands return to those locations in a large file where you've made modifications before.

  • A new mode supports the Tcl language.

  • Epsilon for Unix supports new-style clipboard usage under X11, distinguishing between the primary selection and the clipboard. This helps it interact more naturally with KDE and Gnome programs. Setting the clipboard-format variable to 1 mimics Epsilon's previous behavior of only using the primary selection. Middle-clicking, which normally performs pan-style scrolling, now inserts the primary selection when shift-clicked.
