A macro variable $VERSION will be added for the next
release. This variable will contain the major.minor
version of NEdit (5006 for NEdit 5.6); point version is
not returned, as point releases by definition do not
change the macro API.

This variable should be added as soon as possible,
namely before any serious changes are made to the macro
language.

    I also think adding $NEDIT_HOME as a built-in macro variable is a very useful extension.

    I agree that it's useful, but yaddayadda and therefore it should not be added.

    Also, adding $VERSION is special as it directly related to versions and should be added asap.
