gedit 0.7.0 (April 18, 2000)

    New Maintainers

	* Chema Celorio <chema@celorio.com> and Jason Leach
	  <leach@wam.umd.edu> are the new maintainers of gedit.  We're
	  trying our best to get a great stable text editor onto every
	  GNOME desktop, especially with the aggressive roadmap
	  leading to GNOME 2.0.

    Changes

	* Many crashes and bugs fixed.

	* The new plugin API is implemented, some of the plugins have
	  been converted over to the new system.

	* File I/O operations have been re-written.

	* Massive cleanup on the source code.

	* Printing now uses gnome-print.

	* The menus have been simplified.

	* ALT-F not pulling up the File menu bug fixed.

	* Some dialogs were re-designed using glade, including a
	  completely new Preferences.

	* i18n improvements and upates.

    Disabled features (for stability reasons)

	* Most of the plugins have been disabled or are not yet
	  converted over to the new system.

	* The status bar does not display "Column: x" for now since
	  the column reporting code is very inacturate.

gEdit doenst segfault on startup =)

New Things Since 0.5.3:
	* As of this release we also gain the support of Multibyte
290 291

ANNOUNCE - 0.5.3 (1999-05-24)
----------------
Hi, I am announcing here the release of gEdit 0.5.3 - A small but powerful text
editor for Gnome. To run this version of gEdit you require at least Gtk+ 1.2.3
and Gnome 1.0.9. We now have full integration with the Gnome environment. This
release is a lot more stable than 0.5.2, many of the wierd and wonderful bugs
that cropped up have now been dealt with and I am happy to say this release is
as stable as 0.5.1. Yes, there still are bugs, but nothing to affect day-to-day 
usage. This release also brings in new features.

	* File Revert, so you can bring back the stored copy of a file, quickly
	  and easily.
	
	* Customisable Window Size settings, so now you can decide how big or
321 322
	  small the window is when you start gEdit (This has been a
	  very much asked for feature).

323 324
	
	* Customisable scrollbars, finally implemented this long time requested
325 326 327
	  feature - Scrollbar is invisible until text overflows the
	  widget, is the default now (instead of having it visible all
	  the time).

328 329 330 331 332 333 334 335 336 337 338 339 340
	
	* New plugins! 
	  These include: 
	   * "Insert Time" - To insert the current date and time
	     into the current document.
	   * "Man Viewer" - This lets you look up man pages within gEdit.
	   * "Wordcount" - This counts the number of characters, words and
	     paragraphs in the current document.
	
	* Numerous important bug fixes, increasing stability since 0.5.2.
	  Thanks to users for finding many of the little, more sneeky, bugs.
	  (The ChangeLog file documents these many fixes).

ANNOUNCE - 0.5.2 (1999-05-09)
353 354 355 356 357
----------------
Hi, this is to announce the long awaited gEdit 0.5.2 - A small but powerful text
editor for Gnome. To run this version of gEdit you require at least Gtk+ 1.2.2
and Gnome 1.0.8. We now have full integration with the Gnome environment. I do
warn you that this release can be a bit tempromental, so we've decided to mark
358
this a DEVELOPMENT release - If you need total stability stick with 0.5.1.
359 360 361 362 363 364 365 366 367 368 369 370 371 372 373

Since the last release (0.5.1) we have the following:

	* Complete re-write of the Document interface, now using GnomeMDI.
	
	* Complete re-write of the Search interface (Thanks to LotR (Martijn 
	  van Beers)).
	
	* A Help file has finally been produced, thanks to Andy Glover.
	
	* And a nice set of minor bug fixes to top it all off with.

If you find any bugs in this release (Which I am sure there are) please contact
either me or the mailing list (information on the homepage).
