I am pleased to announce the release of GNU moe 1.4.

GNU moe is a powerful, 8-bit clean, console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings, with a modeless, user-friendly interface.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/moe/moe.html.

The sources can be downloaded from http://ftpmirror.gnu.org/moe/ http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/moe/ or from your favorite GNU mirror.

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html

The md5sums are:
9eb117063772f286107ffc6afdb53914  moe-1.4.tar.gz
bba115a8486fbabc37b52911821d8486  moe-1.4.tar.lz

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

Changes in version 1.4:

  * The new command "toggle search direction" has been added.

  * The new replace sequence "\c" has been added.

* The command "control char" now accepts arbitrarily large numbers and inserts them as big or little endian sequences of bytes.

  * Backspace delete has been fixed on some terminal emulators.

* Key codes ignored by moe are now shown when typed, so that you can know (and hopefully report) why a given key does not work when using moe in your favorite terminal emulator.

  * "(I)gnore" has been changed to "(I)gnore_case" in search prompt.

* A warning about the minimum screen size needed (80x24) has been added to the manual.

  * Variable size arrays have been removed.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

If you are packaging moe for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems[1][2]. Thanks.
