------------------------------

And so begins the long awaited 0.6.x stable series.

0.5.5 had some major bugs, that have now been fixed and we're working on making

otherwise known as "The Road To 1.0.0"). 0.6 will continue on as the main stable
platform of gEdit, until the 0.9 series has been completed and 1.0.0 is launched.

Changes
=======
	* Minor overhaul of the buffer system, made it more reliable and
	  stable.
	
	* Small code overhaul, removing now obsolete and un-used code.
	
	* Updated plugins (Wordcount now sports a nice GTK+ based interface).

gEdit 0.5.5 "Undead" is now Available. Codenamed Undead because, well, i wanted

	* Brand new multiple view interface, which actually works

	* Brand new search feature that globally searches all open documents	

	* Various speed improvements
	
	* Many, many, many bug fixes

ANNOUNCE 0.5.4 (1999-06-02)
--------------
gEdit 0.5.4 is Now available.

Since the release of Gnome-Libs 1.0.11 things got broken (well, actually the
Settings menu updater, which is currently not updating the toggle items because
of mysterious problems caused by 1.0.11 (it was fine with 1.0.10)). Those 
things are still minorly broken, but gEdit doenst segfault on startup =)

New Things Since 0.5.3:
	* As of this release we also gain the support of Multibyte
	  fonts (ie Big5/Japanese/etc) (Thanks to Akira Higuchi for that).
	
	* gEdit now makes sure there is always at least one document available.
	
	* gEdit now uses GnomeDock items for the bottom row items (eg, statusbar,
	  Column indicator, etc).
	
	* Various major (and not so major) bug fixes.

You can get this latest version from http://gedit.pn.org

Many thanks,
	- Alex Roberts <bse@dial.pipex.com>

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
	  small the window is when you start gEdit (This has been a very much
	  asked for feature).
	
	* Customisable scrollbars, finally implemented this long time requested
	  feature - Scrollbar is invisible until text overflows the widget, is
	  the default now (instead of having it visible all the time).
	
	* 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).

Source tarballs are available for download from http://gedit.pn.org; RPMs will be
available (As soon as some are built).

Any comments, bugs, etc. can be directed to me <bse@gedit.pn.org> or (This is 
preferred) the mailing list, information is available at the web site.

Thanks

----------------
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
142
this a DEVELOPMENT release - If you need total stability stick with 0.5.1.
143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157

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).
