Windows-specific Enhancements in Epsilon 11

  • Epsilon for Windows can now link to help files in the HtmlHelp format (.chm files) in the same way it links to .hlp files.

  • Epsilon's helper program sendeps.exe no longer uses the DDE protocol to communicate with Epsilon. As a result it continues to work even if a window in the system fails to run its message loop (which can block Windows DDE messages). Epsilon's -add flag also uses the new protocol. Sendeps now has additional customization options. The Open With Epsilon context menu item in Explorer is now compatible with the Office Toolbar.

  • The print-color-scheme variable, used to set a different color scheme for printing, now works properly if the color choices for the headings set the background color. The new variable print-doublespaced lets you make Epsilon doublespace its output. And Epsilon should no longer get confused sometimes about which printer is the default one.

  • Epsilon's support for Cygwin-style file names now understands the /cygdrive syntax and the use of ~.

  • The new screen-decoration color class lets you set the color used for screen decorations created via the draw-focus-rectangle or draw-column-markers variables.

  • Cursor shape variables like normal-gui-cursor now provide additional options for positioning the cursor within the character cell and setting its height. As a result, it's now possible to use an underline-style cursor, among other shapes.
