JOE now has pop-up shell windows with full terminal emulation and shell commands that can control the editor. Hit F1 - F4 to bring up a shell window. See Pop-up shell feature for a full description.
The status command (^K SPACE) can now be customized using the same syntax as the status bar. Look for smsg and zmsg in joerc to see how to do this.
parserr (the error parser) will parse only the highlighted block if it's set. Before it always parsed the entire buffer.
Now there is a per-buffer concept of current directory. This was added to make the pop-up shell windows work better, but it's useful in general.
At file prompts you can begin a new anchored path without having to delete the old one. It means that ~jhallen/foo//etc/passwd is translated to /etc/passwd. Prompt windows are now highighted to indicate which parts of the path are being dropped. There is a syntax file for this: filename.jsf
The error parser now ignores ANSI sequences (some versions of grep color their results, now JOE can still parse it).
Temporary messages are now dismissed by keyboard input only. Before, they could also be dismissed by shell input.
Tags search now supports multiple matches. ^K ; can be configured to either provide a menu of the matches or to cycle through them.
Tags search will now match on the member name part of member functions ('fred' will match 'myclass::fred').
Tags search will prepend the path to the tags file file name in the tags file. This is important when JOE finds the tags file via the TAGS environment variable.
Remove ` as quote character from incremental search.
Clean up documentation, convert much of it to Markdown.
