        aout package
        * Update from 2.0h beta to 2.0i beta
        * This is a BETA TEST package
        * It is being announced only to debian-devel at this time
        * e2-2.0.beta is patterned after the vi editor, and provides
        * several enhancements, among which are C language syntax
        * hiliting and an X11 interface with clickpoint positioning,
        * click & drag selection, html processing, and more.
        * Please report bugs directly to the author at kirkenda@cs.pdx.edu.
        * The following is from the author's announcement.
        The biggest differences between this version (2.0i) and the previous
        beta-test version (2.0h) are as follows...
        * The options which control the "c" display mode can now be set
          in your elvis.ini file or .exrc (elvis.rc for non-UNIX) file.
        * Added support for a "binary" option, so that binary files can
          be read and written.  Generally, the "binary" option is set
          in the "elvis.brf" file so it will be automatically set for each
          new buffer, before the buffer is loaded with data from the file.
        * Support for "wrapmargin" has been implemented in normal and
          c display modes.
        * In the "man" display modes, the .B and .I commands will now insert
          whitespace between arguments.  Previously they omitted whitespace
          like the .BI, etc. commands do.
        * Implemented abbreviations.
        * Fixed many bugs:
              * I fixed a bug in the handling of modifier keys, which should
                make some non-U.S. keyboards work better.
              * Fixed bugs in the :xit and :goto commands, and added the
                :close command.
              * I believe I have fixed that annoying bug which caused cw to
                leave the old text and the terminating '$' in the buffer
                even after ESC.
              * Fixed some bugs in the visual ! command.
        * I've written most of the documentation.  The missing chapters are
          4 (ex mode), 8 (user interfaces), 9 (initialization & sessions),
          and 11 (error messages).
