+
+- 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 files: m4, joerc
+
+- New debug window for highlight 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.
+
+- 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.
+
+- 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.
+
+JOE 3.4
+
+- Paragraph reformatter and word wrap now handle '*' and '-' bullet lists.
+
+- Better internationalization (i18n):
+
+    JOE now uses gettext(), so that internal messages can be translated to
+    the local language.  The /etc/joe directory now has a lang subdirectory
+    for the .po files.
+
+    Internationalized joerc files are now possible.  If LANG is en_GB, JOE
+    tries successively to load joerc.en_GB, joerc.en and joerc.
+
+- Multi-file search and replace:
+
+    There are two new search and replace options:
+
+      'a': the search covers all loaded buffers.  So you can say:
+
+            joe *.c
+            and then ^KF foo <return>
+                     ra <return>
+                     bar <return>
+            to replace all instances of foo in all .c files.
+
+      'e': the search covers all files in the error list.
+
+            You can use grep-find to create a list of files:
+
+            ESC g
+             grep -n foo f*.c
+            ^KF foo <return>
+            re
+            bar <return>
+
+            You can also use 'ls' and 'find' instead of grep to
+	    create the file list.
+
+- JOE now restores cursor position in previously visited files.
+
+- Build and grep window work more like Turbo-C: the messages window is
+  forced onto the screen when you hit ^[ = and ^[ -.
+
+- Syntax highlighter definition files (.jsf files) can now have subroutines. 
+  This eases highlighter reuse: for example, Mason and PHP can share the HTML
+  highlighter.
+
+- I've changed the way JOE handles '-' and redirected input:
+
+	joe < file		A shell process is started which 'cat's the
+				file into the first buffer.
+
+	tail -f log | joe	A shell process is started which 'cat's the
+				output from 'tail -f' (watch a log file) into
+				the first buffer.
+
+	joe -			JOE does not try to read from stdin, but
+				when the file is saved, it writes to stdout.
+
+	echo "hi" | joe - | mail fred
+				"hi" ends up in first buffer.  When you
+				save, mail is sent.
+
+- Many bugs have been fixed.  I've tried to address every issue in the bug
+  tracker.  Hopefully I didn't create too many new ones :-)
+
+- You can now define which characters can indent paragraphs.  Also the
+  default list has been reduced so that formatting of TeX/LaTeX files works
+  better.
+
+- Highlighting now uses less CPU time and always parses from the beginning
+  of the file (the number of sync lines option is deprecated).  Here is a
+  CPU usage comparison for scrolling forwards and backwards through a 35K
+  line C file:
+
+	JOE	.58
+	JED	.57
+	NEDIT	3.26
+	VIM	7.33
+	EMACS	11.98
+
+- JOE now matches Thomas Dickey's implementation of my xterm patch (but
+  configure xterm with --paste64).
+
+- File selection menu/completion-list is now above the prompt (which is more
+  like bash).  Also it is transposed, so that it is sorted by columns
+  instead of rows.
+
+- "Bufed" (prompt for a buffer to edit), works like other file prompt
+  commands: it's a real prompt with history and completion.
+
+- Automatic horizontal left scroll jumps by 5-10 columns.
+
+- New syntax files: troff, Haskell, Cadance SKILL, REXX, LUA, RUBY.  Many of
+  the existing syntax files have been improved.
+
+JOE 3.3
+
+- The default background color can now be set.
+
+- JOE now supports 256 color xterm.
+
+- The mouse can now resize windows and select menu entries.
+
+- During selection with the mouse, the window will autoscroll when you go
+  past the edge.
+
+- An xterm-patch is included which makes "-mouse" mode work better.  (With
+  the patch, also set "-joexterm").
+
+- Syntax files are provided: ADA, AWK, COBOL, SED, Postscript, and SQL
+
+- Improved jpico: search now looks more like real pico
+
+- Grep find: use ESC g to grep.  Then use ESC space to jump to
+  to indicated file/line.
+
+- Cygwin setup.exe support
+
+JOE 3.2
+
+- A Perforce SCM "p4 edit" macro has been supplied (along with the hooks
+  within JOE which support it) so that when you make the first change to a
+  read-only file, JOE runs "p4 edit".  (look in joerc file to enable the
+  macro).
+
+- Hex edit mode has been added.  For example: joe -hex /dev/hda,0,1024
+
+- New '-break_links' option causes JOE to delete before writing files, to
+  break hard links.  Useful for 'arch' SCM.
+
+- JOE now has GNU-Emacs compatible file locks.  A symbolic link called
+  .#name is created, "pointing" to "user@machine.pid" whenever the buffer
+  goes from unmodified to modified.  If the lock can't be created, the user
+  is allowed to steal or ignore the lock, or cancel the edit.  The lock is
+  deleted when buffer goes from modified to unmodified (or you close the
+  file).
+
+- JOE now periodically checks the file on the disk and gives a warning if
+  it changed when you try to modify the buffer.  (JOE already performed this
+  test on file save).
+
+- The built-in calculator (ESC m) is now a full featured scientific
+  calculator (I'm shooting for Casio Fx-4000 level here :-), including
+  hexadecimal and ability to sum (and perform statistics on) a highlighted
+  (possibly rectangular) block of numbers.  Hit ^K H at the math prompt for
+  documentation.
+
+- You can now change the current directory in JOE (well, it prompts with
+  the latest used directory).
+
+- Colors can now be specified in the joerc file
+
+- Macro language now has conditionals and modifiers for dealing with
+  repeat arguments.  Jmacs now works better due to this.
+
+- Tab completion works at tags search prompt ^K ;
+
+- ^G now jumps between word delimiters (begin..end in Verilog, #if #else
+  #endif in C, /* .. */ and XML tags).  If it doesn't know the word, it
+  starts a search with the word seeding the prompt.  It is also much smarter
+  about skipping over comments and quoted matter.
+
+- TAB completion is now much more like bash (again :-).  The cursor stays
+  at the file name prompt instead of jumping into the menu system.  Also
+  ^D brings up the menu, as in tcsh.  Also, tab completion now works on user
+  names for ~ expansion.
+
+- Now there is a ~/.joe_state file which stores:
+	all history buffers
+	current keyboard macros
+	yank records
+
+- Joe now has xterm mouse support: when enabled, the mouse can position
+  the cursor and select blocks.  The mouse wheel will scroll the screen. 
+  When enabled, shift-click emulates old xterm mouse behavior (cut &
+  paste between applications).
+
+- More syntax files: TeX, CSS, OCaml, Delphi, SML and 4GL.  Thanks to
+  all of the contributers.
+
+- Vastly improved highlighting of Perl and Shell due to the highlighter now
+  understanding word and balanced delimiters.
+
+- Many bugs have been fixed (every bug which has been entered into the
+  sourceforge project page has been addressed).  Hopefully I didn't add
+  too many new ones :-)
+
+JOE 3.1
+
+- Regex and incremental search (jmacs ^S) now work for UTF-8
+
+- More and improved syntax highlighting files, including Mason
+
+- Use ^T E to set character set of file (hit <tab> <tab> at the
+  prompt for a list of available character sets).
+
+- Can install custom "i18n" style byte oriented character set
+  definition files.
+
+- No longer depends on iconv() (easier to compile)
+
+- Fix bug where right arrow was not doing right thing on last line
+
+- Fix UTF-8 codes between 0x10000 - 0x1FFFF
+
+- Now prints <XXXX> for unicode control characters
+
+- Improved smart home, indent, etc.
+
+- TAB completion is now more "bash"-like
+
+- When multiple files are given on command line, they end up in
+  same order on the screen in JOE (before they were shuffled).
+
+- Menu size is now variable (40% of window size or smaller if
+  it's not filled).
+
+- Added -icase option for case insensitive search by default.
+
+- Added -wrap option, which makes searches wrap
+
+- Added status line sequence %x: shows current context (function
+  name if you're editing C).
+
+- Added tab completion at search prompts and ESC-Enter for tab
+  completion within text windows.
+
+- Warn if file changed on save.
+
+- Added Ctrl-space block selection method
+
+- Added Ctrl-arrow key block selection method
+
+- ^K E asks if you want to load original version of the file
+
+- jmacs bugs fixes: upperase word, transpose words, ^X ^C is
+  more emacs-like., ^X k and ^X ^V more like emacs.
+
+- Much improved compile system ^[ c
+
+- Much improved jpico
+
+- aspell support.
