GNU Moe 1.12-rc1 is ready for testing here

The sha256sum is:
725502836f7736fe133ea7011c4c9e18cbc9c4e65a9fc229873eca456aed0226 moe-1.12-rc1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

GNU moe is a console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings. It has a modeless, user-friendly interface, online help, multiple windows, global search/replace (on all buffers at once), block operations, automatic indentation, word wrapping, file name completion, directory browser, duplicate removal from prompt histories, delimiter matching, text conversion from/to UTF-8, romanization, etc. The file size, line length, number of buffers, and undo/redo capability are only limited by the amount of memory available and the size of the address space of your machine.

Moe respects your work. By default it won't automatically add, change, or remove a single byte in your files. Moe is a WYTIWYG (what you type is what you get) editor.

Moe can easily edit thousands of files at the same time.

Moe uses ISO-8859-15 instead of Unicode (ISO 10646) because an 8-bit character set (combined with romanization if needed) can convey meaning safely and more efficiently than Unicode can.

Changes in this version:

* A '+' alone (without line number) before a file name in the command line puts the cursor at end-of-buffer. (Idea borrowed from GNU nano 5.8).

  * Recursive load now ignores names with extension ".exe".

  * The new command 'C-o b' (reformat paragraphs in block) has been added.

  * Moe now centers the cursor the first time each buffer handle is displayed.

* 'F2' (save) now can write an unnamed read-only buffer to a file without setting the buffer name. One should always be able to write a read-only buffer to a file as long as the buffer name does not match the file name.

  * Files corresponding to terminal devices are now ignored at startup.

  * 'undo' and 'redo' now show feedback ("undoing...", "redoing...").

* The UTF-8 decoder now converts some more characters ('numero sign', 'arrow with tip', 'double arrow', 'Kelvin sign', 'Angstrom sign').

  * The variable LIBS can now be set from configure.

* Several fixes and improvements have been made to the manual. (Reported by David Apps).
