Summary: JOE 3.5 Released!

- Many bugs have been fixed, including a number of critical ones: 
- Left arrow in menus sometimes caused a core dump. 
- ESC c (compile) caused core dump or missed saving some files. 
- Multi-file search & replace core dumps with 'e' option. 
- ^XC in jmacs sometimes missed asking to save some files. 
- This version has been test compiled to be warning free on many systems, 
including: Irix 6.5, HPUX-11i, FreeBSD 5.4, NetBSD 3.0, Hp Tru64 5.1b, Cygwin,
Linux, S/390, Itanium, Alpha, x86, MIPS, PA-RISC.
- Query windows now expand to multiple lines if necessary
- Single key queries are now internationalized (set local versions in the .po file)
- Spell check language can be set in the editor 
- New syntax highlight files: m4, joerc
- New debug window for .jsf file syntax errors. 
- Macros can be typed at the ESC X prompt (before it used to accept only commands). 
- Built-in joerc file allows joe to run even if /etc/joe directory is 
missing: now you can run the editor with just the binary file. 
- Support for 'long long' allows editing parts of files larger than 4GB.  
For example, you can say: joe /dev/hda,0x100000000,0x1000 to edit the 4KB 
block at offset 4GB of a hard drive. 
- There is now an option which allows you set how many undo records to keep. 
- You can give a path to the tags file in the TAGS environment variable.
