More New Features in Epsilon 11

  • Epsilon now keeps a history of prior messages displayed in the echo area in the buffer #messages#. Set the message-history-size variable to change how it's truncated.

  • The new command fill-indented-paragraph on Alt-Shift-Q can fill paragraphs while preserving their indentation.

  • The copy-to-scratch command now works with rectangular regions.

  • Epsilon now uses less CPU time for its idle-time processing. Under X, Epsilon's screen refreshing is faster.

  • Syntax highlighting is now faster in buffers with very long lines.

  • By default, Alt-Numpad keys are now interpreted as entering a character by its Ascii code in OS/2 and the Windows console version, not as individual keys. In the Windows GUI version, the former behavior is still the default, but it's now possible to use the program-keys command to set Epsilon so these characters are interpreted as individual keys.

  • Most command line flags like -s that require an argument of some sort now permit a space to appear before the argument.

  • Epsilon's Info mode has been revised, providing faster and more relevant index functions.

  • Searching by words now permits multiple words. If you perform a word search for "word search", Epsilon will find those two words with any combinations of whitespace (spaces, tabs, newlines) between them.

  • The new reset-mode command forces Epsilon to set the buffer's mode based on the current file name and buffer contents, just as it does when you first read a file.

  • The Ctrl-C key is now a prefix key, like Ctrl-X. The stop-process command to stop a concurrent process, formerly on Ctrl-C, has been moved to Ctrl-C Ctrl-C.
