Other Changes in Epsilon 12Epsilon now supports multiple process buffers under Windows NT/2K/XP, as under Unix.
At many prompts, the Alt-g key now inserts an alternative default response. For instance, in a search and replace, Alt-g when entering replacement text inserts the original search text. Alt-g at many file prompts inserts the name of the current file.
Epsilon's notion of bindable keys has been redesigned. There are now many more possible key combinations. Epsilon now uses the concept of generic versus specific keys; for instance, the specific key <Backspace> is also generically a Ctrl-h key. If you bind this key to a new command, Epsilon will ask if you want to bind only the <Backspace> key, or all key combinations that generate a Ctrl-h.
The new variable alt-numpad-keys lets you set how Epsilon
for Windows treats the Alt versions of numeric pad keys. Previously
The new command run-with-argument provides a simple way to pass a yanked numeric argument to a command, or one that you want to specify in a different base like hexadecimal.
With a numeric argument, the eval command now inserts the result of its computation into the current buffer instead of displaying it.
If you run the exit command with a numeric argument (Ctrl-u Ctrl-x Ctrl-c, for instance), Epsilon doesn't save any modifications to fonts, window sizes, and other settings it normally preserves when you exit.
Brief mode has many small changes that make it mimic Brief more closely. For instance, the new commands undo-by-commands and redo-by-commands group primitive undo operations in a way more similar to Brief.
Epsilon's -r flag now accepts an optional text argument following the command name, which it passes to the called EEL subroutine.

In Epsilon for Windows, when you click on a window to switch to Epsilon, it no longer sets the cursor where you clicked.
Epsilon for Linux is now available packaged in .deb and .rpm formats for the convenience of Debian and Red Hat Linux users.
Epsilon 12 no longer includes executables for OS/2 or Windows 3.1, though a copy of Epsilon 11 for OS/2 is included.
