Peacock 0.6 released!

Peacock 0.6 is officially released. New thing include

New in 0.6
* Find and/or Replace - I finally added the Find and/or Replace functions.
Something basic everyone expects from any kind of editor (text, html etc).
* The wonderful world of GnomeVFS - All the file operations have been shifted
to the GnomeVFS architecture (previously it was the POSIX complaint standard
C FILE API). This means you can edit files directly from the web, ftp,
even across networks using protocols like Samba etc, basically the ones
supported by GnomeVFS. Including those from secured sites which require
* GtkHTML Preview click functionality - now you can click on a link in the
Preview Pane, and Peacock will open the new file for you in the editor.
Something to pamper the lazy web hacker.
