Download Epsilon 14.01 Update

Epsilon 14.01 is now available for beta testing. This update fixes a number of bugs and adds some minor new features since Epsilon 14.00. To install this software, you must have a copy of Epsilon 14.00 or later (retail, not evaluation) already installed on your computer. If you installed 14.01 during its beta test period, you don't have to reinstall now; it hasn't changed.

The 14.01 updater is available in these formats:


Epsilon 14.01 for 64-bit Windows Use the updater matching your installation type.
No-admin installer for 64-bit Windows No-Admin installers install just for the current user, and don't require Admin rights to install.
Epsilon 14.01 for 32-bit Windows
No-admin installer for 32-bit Windows
Epsilon 14.01 for macOS Drag the updater application inside the disk image into your Applications folder, then run it. It will locate your previous version of Epsilon in that folder and use it to create an Epsilon 14.01 application.
For 64-bit Red Hat/Fedora Linux Also for other Linux distros that use .rpm files. Double-click the .rpm file to install, or follow the manual directions here.
For 32-bit Red Hat/Fedora Linux
For 64-bit Debian/Ubuntu Also for other Linux distros that use .deb files. Double-click the .deb file to install, or follow the manual directions here.
For 32-bit Debian/Ubuntu
Epsilon 14.01 for 64-bit FreeBSD Install the update the same way as your existing version, following the directions here.
Epsilon 14.01 for 32-bit FreeBSD

Once you've updated Epsilon, you may delete the update file you downloaded. On Windows the updater modifies your existing installation. On other platforms, it creates a separate installation, and the older version may be uninstalled at your convenience (by dragging the app to the Trash, running dpkg -r, running rpm -e, as appropriate). The above updaters include a revised online manual in HTML, Info, and (for Windows versions) WinHelp formats. The revised manual is also available in PDF format.

Known Issues

Epsilon 14.01 contains a few new features and several bug fixes. Here we list changes since Epsilon 14.00. See the beta page for changes during the beta test.

New Features

14.01 Under Windows 10, Epsilon no longer rejects attempts to use WinHelp (for example, by setting one of the epsilon-help-format- variables). (While Microsoft does not support WinHelp on Windows 10, and its own WinHelp installer refuses to install on Windows 10, it's still possible to get WinHelp installed and working.)
14.01 Epsilon for Unix's set-font command now displays the current font name when prompting for a font name, in additon to making it the default selection.
14.01 EEL code may now refer to the variables Closeback, Topindent, and Matchdelim as closeback, topindent, and matchdelim, for consistency with other variable names.

Bug Fixes

14.01b Various issues in the macOS updater script were fixed. The Epsilon 14.01 app it creates has not changed.
14.01 Some searching commands, when given an invalid regular expression search pattern, would report it was not found, instead of saying it was invalid.
14.01 In some Linux environments, Epsilon received spurious focus events when the Ctrl key was held down, resulting in incremental search exiting on keys like Ctrl-w, and other issues.
14.01 The push-cmd-unix-macos-interactive variable has a new default and the shell() primitive has a new flag SHELL_COPY_OUTPUT to address issues with the push command on Unix platforms.
