I am pleased to announce the release of GNU moe 1.9.

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, unlimited buffers, 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.

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

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.

The sha256sum is:
18919e9ffae08f34d8beb3a26fc5a595614e0aff34866e79420ca81881ff4ef3 moe-1.9.tar.lz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending '.sig' to the URL. If the 'gpg --verify' command fails because you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 8FE99503132D7742

Changes in version 1.9:

* Moe now loads recursively all the regular files in each directory passed in the command line. This feature makes it easier to edit a whole tree containing thousands of files.

* The new help key 'C-a' has been added because 'F1' is intercepted by some terminal emulators, and 'C-h' is interpreted as backspace by others.

  * The UTF-8 decoder now converts some more characters.

* Cursor positions (+line,column) given in the command line are now adjusted for tab characters.

* The command 'goto matching delimiter' now skips delimiters inside /**/ comments.

* The 'N' command ('Find next' in reverse direction) has been added to the basic less emulation.

* Standard input is now read just once, the first time it appears in the command line.

  * 'Remove duplicate lines' is now a 20% faster.

  * Long file names are now cut to fit in messages like this:
    "File '...end_of_long_file_name' saved".

* An 8-bit "C" locale is now used in Cygwin so that ncurses can show characters higher than 127.

* A configure warning happening on some shells when testing for g++ has been fixed.
