JOE (Joe's own editor) has the feel of most IBM PC text editors: The key-sequences are reminiscent of WordStar and Turbo-C. JOE is much more powerful than those editors, however. JOE has all of the features a UNIX user should expect: full use of termcap/terminfo, excellent screen update optimizations, simple installation, and all of the UNIX-integration features of VI.
Release Notes: Menus are now made up of macros instead of options. ^T is now a user definable menu system. Several syntax highlighting improvements were made. Paragraph reformatting was improved. A reload command to reload the edited file from disk was added. Several other fixes and improvements were made.
Release Notes: Various bugfixes, new features, and improved syntax highlighting.
Release Notes: This release includes fixes for some core dump bugs and also a few feature enhancements. The bugs include core dumps when traversing menus and when using the multi-file search and replace command. Also fixed is a bug where the compile command (ESC c) and the exit command in jmacs (^XC) would sometime core dump. Enhancements include some internationalization improvements, syntax highlighters for M4 and joerc files, and the ability to edit sections of files larger than 4GB. This, in combination with the hex-dump display mode, allow JOE to be used as a disk editor for large hard drives.
Release Notes: This is a fairly major release that includes many bugfixes and feature enhancements. New features include: multi-file search and replace, reformatting of bullet lists, gettext() support, restoring the previous cursor position, better make and grep windows, subroutines in the syntax definition files (allows reuse of HTML for PHP and Mason), and new syntax files for Troff, Haskell, Cadance SKILL, REXX, LUA, and Ruby.
Release Notes: The default background color can now be set. 256 color xterms are now supported. The mouse can now resize windows and select menu entries. During selection with the mouse, the window will auto-scroll when you go past the edge. An xterm-patch tgat makes "-mouse" mode work better was included. Syntax files were provided for ADA, AWK, COBOL, SED, Postscript, and SQL. jpico was improved, and search now looks more like real pico. Grep finds can be performed using ESC g, followed by ESC space to jump to the indicated file and line. Cygwin setup.exe support was added.
