New Customization Options in Epsilon 11

  • The new fundamental-auto-show-delim-chars variable lets you easily configure Epsilon to highlight matching delimiters in Fundamental mode.

  • The new full-path-on-mode-line variable lets you force Epsilon to display the full path to each file at all times.

  • When you yank rectangular regions, you can use the yank-rectangle-to-corner to tell Epsilon how to position point and mark. By default Epsilon now leaves point at the lower right corner.

  • Set the variable save-all-without-asking if you want the save-all-buffers command to skip over those buffers created with the File/New menu item or new-file command that still lack associated file names. Instead of prompting for a file name, it will report which buffers it didn't save.

  • By default Epsilon sessions no longer automatically restore files larger than a certain size, for faster startup. Set the session-restore-biggest-file variable to adjust this size.

  • The new insert-file-remembers-file variable lets you change how this command's prompt handles default values.

  • Set the forward-word-to-start variable nonzero if you want the forward-word command to leave point at the start of each word, instead of its end.

  • Set the sentence-end-double-space variable if you want filling commands and sentence commands to use a single space at the ends of sentences instead of two.

  • In HTML mode, a set of new variables let you customize how Epsilon colors embedded scripting. Each of the following variables may be set to 1 for Javascript-style coloring, 2 for VBScript-style coloring, or 0 for plain coloring.

    The html-asp-coloring variable controls scripting embedded in <% %> delimiters. The html-php-coloring variable controls scripting embedded in <? ?> delimiters. The html-vbscript-coloring variable controls scripting that uses a <script language=vbscript> or similar tag. The html-javascript-coloring variable controls scripting that uses a <script language=javascript> or similar tag (including jscript or ecmascript), and the html-other-coloring variable controls scripting when the specified language is unrecognized.
