* "goto line", "goto column" and "goto offset" now accept values relative to the current value.

  * The navigation keys of the buffers menu have been changed.

* The key combination for the command "show character info" has been changed to "Alt-i".

  * The clock now shows a "." after the minutes for PM.

* Moe now removes the file before saving when "create backups" is off to avoid following links.

* "reformat paragraph" now uses as left margin the maximum of left margin and cursor column.

* "change buffer name" now rejects the names of files already being edited.

  * "last visited" now does not change after adding or removing handles.

  * Common limits have been set for editor options in rc and menu.

  * The new chapter "Info commands" has been added to the manual.

* Quote characters in messages have been changed as advised by GNU Coding Standards.

* Configure option "--datadir" has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU Standards.

  * The target "install-bin" has been added to the Makefile.
