- Add cp437 encoding

JOE 3.1jupp26

JOE 3.1jupp25

- Better colouring of diffs; better support for CVS and git
- New wcwidth code; aligned with Unicode 6.2.0
- Prevent accidentally freeing an environment string
- On SIGWINCH, resize menu to avoid using stale columns information

JOE 3.1jupp24

  whitespace mis-detection, remove them (and make *.{asc,doc}=txt)

JOE 3.1jupp23

- Overhaul and harmonise syntax detection and editor defaults

  wordwrap by default and now disables guess_indent except in

- Disable CR-LF mode upon entering hex edit mode
- Remove junk from files and improve comments
- Configure for Large File Support

JOE 3.1jupp19

JOE 3.1jupp12

- Fix compiler warnings
- Fix the manpage wrt. UTF-8 hyphen/dash/minus
- Add missing headers on some platforms
- Add support for Debian libbsd
- Add way to disable warnings wrt. Anil Madhavapeddy's bounds checker
- Unbreak SELinux support
- Fix `x## for 80‥FF in !UTF-8 mode
- Use the inverse/underlined U+FFFD for some more occurences of
  undisplayable (control) characters and incomplete multibyte
  sequences; fix displaying these at end of line
- Ensure C0/C1 control characters are never sent to a UTF-8
  terminal, even from !UTF-8 documents
- Add built-in (minimal) jupprc file, for standalone EXEs
- Backport hex editing mode; improve it, use uppercase
- Implement `r## in UTF-8 mode (same as `x## in !UTF-8 mode)
  and `u (interactive) in !UTF-8 mode (same as `x in UTF-8 mode)
- Add new Makefile variable sysconfjoesubdir=/joe (to override
  the /joe in /etc/joe/jupprc for example)
- Update config.guess and config.sub
- Provide a real ANSI (cp1252) codepage
- Fix build on AIX with xlC, Solaris with SUNWcc

JOE 3.1jupp11

- Split into two separate lines of *active* development:
  * JUPP for DOS (joe 2.8 plus some jupp patches and jupprc)
  * JUPP for Unix (joe 3.1 with all jupp patches and a diverging,
    more featureful jupprc than joe 3.1jupp10 had)
- Use some joe 3.x features in jupprc: assume_color, guess_crlf,
  guess_indent, purify, smartbacks; some are disabled by default
  though (autoindent, smarthome, smarthome+indentfirst)
- Enable syntax highlighting by default in jupprc, by popular
  demand, even if I still loathe it personally, like Rob Pike
- Add language/syntax selection into jupprc, with Python settings
  adhering to the most common coding standards
- The termidx binary can now be disabled by a configure option
- Manual page symbolic links are installed alongside the manpages

JOE 3.1jupp10

- Build fixes for Darwin
- Fix: smartbacks could not be used without autoindent

JOE 3.1jupp9

- Build fixes for AIX, gcc (thanks Adam "replaced" Hoka), any OEs
  without mksh installed
- Synchronise external files with upstream, licence cleanup
- Remove CR (DOS line endings) on ^K] as well in jupprc

JOE 3.1jupp8

- Bugfix (maybe) for backspace deleting more than it should
  when smart backspaces or auto-indent are off
- In UTF-8 mode, display illegal characters as reversed (inverse)
  underlined U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER, one per octet (if these
  form a valid part of an invalid multibyte sequence, the first
  valid octets are not necessarily individually selectable)
- In UTF-8 mode, don't display the decimal ASCII value of a wide
  character; display the correct UCS-2 hex value (or <-2> for an
  invalid sequence or the 8-bit hex value of the octet for an
  invalid octet or invalid one-octet multibyte sequence) instead
- Upgrade to latest MirOS licence template

JOE 3.1jupp7

- Bugfix in bundled strlcat() implementation
- Bugfix (off-by-one array bounds) in from_uni()
- New option "vispace" to make spaces and tabs visible, like in
  Microsoft® Works®. Works best with Unicode.
- "noxon" and "baud" are now menu entries; these two and
  "keepup" have been moved to the top so they can be switched
  quickly if you're in an ssh situation
- Disable funny behaviour of keys in menus, fixes POLS
- Reduce memory usage a little
- In the options menu, if "return" is hit instead of entering a value,
  and it is not a string, it's handled sensitively: numbers keep their
  value, syntax gets unset, and encoding gets reset to the fdefault map.
- Nicely format the options menu (as columns); print values for the
  syntax and encoding options as well in the oversight, use ellipsis for
  strings which aren't displayed otherwise
- Spelling fixes in the options menu
- Honour internationalisation framework of MirOS #9-current and newer
