I am pleased to announce the release of GNU moe 1.6.

GNU Moe is a powerful, 8-bit clean, console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings. It has a modeless, user-friendly interface, online help, multiple windows, unlimited undo/redo capability, unlimited line length, global search/replace (on all buffers at once), block operations, automatic indentation, word wrapping, filename completion, directory browser, duplicate removal from prompt histories, delimiter matching, etc.

The homepage is at

The sources can be downloaded from or from your favorite GNU mirror.

The sha1sum is:
f8ef25449207fce9de9f3836c0d66276f4400b8a  moe-1.6.tar.lz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by
appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 1.6:

* The new commands "extend bookmarks" and "show UTF-8 code" have been added.

  * Encoding of ISO-8859-15 text to UTF-8 has been added.

* The menu of buffers now shows the names of DOS buffers preceded by a minus sign "-", or by a plus sign "+" if they are modified.

  * Find now shows feedback ("searching...").

* Decimal, hexadecimal and octal numbers are now accepted in command line options and editor commands.

  * Octal escape sequences shorter than 3 digits are now accepted.

  * The character code "\xA0" is now correctly recognized as whitespace.

* The UTF-8 decoder now converts more characters (mainly space and punctuation), and shows the failed code if out of range.

* Decoders now move the cursor to the first invalid character in case of error.

  * The clock has been changed to 24 hour format.

  * The configure script now accepts options with a separate argument.

* "moe.texinfo" has been renamed to "moe.texi" following the advice of Automake[1].

"Use of Texinfo input files with '.txi' or '.texinfo' extensions is discouraged, and its use will raise warnings in the 'obsolete' category. You are advised to simply use the '.texi' extension instead."
