Unicode text editor MinEd 2013.23


                            MinEd  2013.23
                            (August  2013)

Major enhancements in this release:

* New double-click feature for word selection.
* Tweaks on smart editing features (undent, wrap, identifier search etc).

Filename handling:
* Suppressing backup file names as generated by command line 
  auto-completion if they appear after their base version name 
  (x~, x;N, x.~N~), so that, e.g., mined x* edits x and x1 but not x~.

Character information:
* Updated to Unicode 6.2.

* Speed-up of directory browsing, especially on slow network drives.
* Ported stand-alone Windows installer to Windows 7.
* Ported to MSYS, Raspberry Pi, Irix.
* Revamped file information statistics to accomodate slow systems.
* Enhancements for newer mlterm.

Bug fixes:
* Explicit tab width option (-4/-8) takes precedence over file info memory.
* Fix 'screen' Unicode display by limiting previous workaround to older version.
* Fixed Alt-digit accent prefix functions for mintty and rxvt (since 2012.20).
* Fixes related to NUL or NONE pseudo lineends.


Mined is a powerful text editor with a comprehensive yet concise and 
easy-to-use user interface supporting modern interaction paradigms, 
and fast, small-footprint behaviour.

Mined provides both extensive Unicode and CJK support offering many 
specific features and covering special cases that other editors 
are not aware of (like auto-detection features and automatic handling 
of terminal variations, or Han character information).

Mined supports full mouse control and menu system in plain-text terminals 
(and it was the first editor supporting Unicode in xterm).

Mined offers a full set of text and file management features, like 
data loss prevention (<img align=absmiddle src=new.gif title=2011.19>
using backup, recovery files, and file locking 
interoperable with other editors, and file change monitoring), 
an interactive file chooser, and 
an interactive file switcher.

Basically, mined is an editor tailored to reliable and efficient 
editing of plain text documents and programs, with comfortable 
features and intuitive interactive behaviour designed for this purpose.
