medit-1.0.0 released

2011-01-29 Yevgen Muntyan <>

* === Released 1.0.0 ===

New release which breaks backwards compatibility (which won't be
broken again for long time, not until medit-2.0). Bugs have been
fixed, features have been implemented, new bugs have been introduced.


- Consistent API for Python and Lua scripts, generated from
source code, together with documentation. This allows for
much more powerful Lua scripts.
- Added option to show all spaces, not just Tab characters.
- Allow searching in a list of directories instead of just a single one.
- Added --geometry command line option.
- Added split views - multiple views of the same document in one
notebook tab.
- Windows can display two notebooks to allow viewing two different
documents at the same as well.
- Build system uses autotools again. Cmake is nice but not nice enough.
