Aurora version 2.0. For more detailed information, see the Aurora Editor
User's Guide, the AML Language Reference, and the AML Function
Reference.

* There have been major performance increases throughout the editor.

- Improved error recovery
- Greatly increased execution and compilation performance
- Descriptive function names
- A revised function set, with many new functions
- Simplified function parameters

overview and tutorial of the new macro language, and the AML Function
Reference for a full description of macro language functions.

* Integrated macro language compilation support moves the cursor
directly to syntax errors in your macros.

* Over 3000 lines of macro language source code, utilities, and examples
are included. See the .AML files in the main Aurora directory, and the
.AML files in the MACRO and STYLE subdirectories.

* A new Macro Utilities popup menu is accessible from the Macro menu and
allows you to run several useful macros:

COUNTCHR.AML - Count characters in a file or block
COUNTWRD.AML - Count words in a file or block
DELBLANK.AML - Delete blank lines in a file or block
DELDUP.AML - Delete duplicate lines in a file

subdirectory, including:

FUNCTION.DOX - The Aurora Macro Language Function Reference
LANGUAGE.DOX - The Aurora Macro Language Reference
QUICKFUN.DOX - An AML Function Quick Reference
REGEXP.DOX - Regular Expression Searching Reference
TIPS.DOX - Miscellaneous User Tips
USER.DOX - The Aurora Editor User's Guide

The Help menu has been modified to reflect the new documentation, and
provides 'topics' menus to help you navigate through the Macro
Language Reference and the User's Guide.

* The hot-keys and allow you to display context
sensitive help on a macro language function name at the cursor. This
feature can be very helpful when learning to use the macro language.

* FAST Color Syntax Highlighting is now provided, and can be customized
for almost any programming language, or even text files. See the new
configuration files SYNTAX.AML and SYNTAX2.AML for syntax highlighting
definitions based on file extensions.

* Words or identifiers in your text can be highlighted in any color
on-the-fly from within an edit session, by using the new 'Highlight
Word' command on the Edit menu. This can can be very useful
for finding instances of a word in a document, or marking occurrences
of variables, functions, or other identifiers in your program source
code.

* More complete folding and outlining capabilities have been provided,
including support for:

- automatic saving and loading of folds as comments in the
source file

- exporting files or blocks of text without folds

The edit window Fold menu has been modified to reflect the new folding
enhancements.

* Live, real-time Word Wrap is now available from the Set Menu, in
addition to the old standard Word Wrap.

* A new 'Incremental Search' command has been added to the
search menu, allowing you to search for a string one character at a
time.

* A new 'Find Occurrences' command is available from the search
menu. This command displays a popup menu showing all the lines in a
file where a search string is found, and allows you to optionally edit
these lines in a separate file.

* Support for a full range of Regular Expression search and replace
operators is provided. A new search option 'x' has been added for
regular expressions, and can be used in the Find, Replace, Scan Files,
and Find Occurrences prompts.

* The number of occurrences of a search string can be counted with the
new search option 'a'.

* A new installation macro guides you through the installation process.

and word processors. You will be prompted to select an editor 'style'
at installation. The following editor styles are currently available
in the shareware version:

within these prompts to display a picklist for a partially entered
filename or filespec.

* A new Two-line box prompt style is included. The prompt style can be
changed from the Window menu, or by changing the 'PromptStyle' setting
in CONFIG.AML.

* One-line and two-line box prompts can now be resized horizontally by
grabbing the left or right prompt borders with the mouse, or by using
the keyboard ( + + cursor keys).

* Dialog boxes have been revised.

* Additional color settings were added for edit windows, file manager
windows, prompts, and dialog boxes.

* Dialog box and popup menu positions can now be saved and restored when
the 'SaveDialog' setting is ON.

* Text can be now be copied from within a prompt to the clipboard by
using the clipboard Copy command. This can be used to save
complex search strings entered at a prompt for later use.

* Several enhancements were made to the File Manager including:

- the sort menu allows you to sort-by-extension
- the disk volume and free space are displayed on the status line
- marked files are highlighted
- the number of marked files and the total size (in bytes) of all
marked files are displayed on the status line
- you can jump quickly to a file within the file manager (or a file
picklist) by repeatedly entering the first letter of the desired
filename until the cursor is positioned at the file.

* Pull-down menus can be detached from the menu bar and moved around the
screen by grabbing the menu borders with the mouse, or by using the
keyboard ( + cursor keys).

* A new window was added to show progress while scanning through files
with the 'askscan' command.

* The system-wide Date and Time format is now configurable (see
SYSTEM.AML for details). You can also configure a new 'Thousands
separator' character for displaying large numbers.

* Entab and Detab are now both builtin functions. See the 'tabblock'
function in FUNCTION.TXH.

* Options to trim trailing blanks and entab while saving have been
added. See the 'SaveOpt' setting in CONFIG.AML

* Better CUA-style key marking is supported, including support
for , , , ,
, etc.

* The default mouse-marking mode has been changed to 'stream' marking.

* Key macros can now be repeated with the Repeat Key function
.

* The text reformatting commands are now configured (by default) to
maintain the indenting relationship between the first and second lines
being reformatted, and to preserve the spacing between words.

* The block Fill function now also fills a marked block with
with a repeating string (not just a repeating character).

* The new configuration setting 'InsAbove' forces marked blocks to be
inserted above the cursor position (rather than below), for the block
Copy, Move, and clipboard Paste commands. See CONFIG.AML.

* The new configuration setting 'MenuCursor' allows the video hardware
cursor to be displayed on the menus and the file manager, which may be
helpful for blind users. See CONFIG.AML.

* Simple block quoting support is provided by the new 'quote'
command. For text quoting on a line-by-line basis, use the
'commentline' command.

* The 'commentline' command is now sensitive to the extension
of the current file.

* The 'goto line' and 'goto column' prompts will now jump to a
relative distance away from the current cursor position. To move by a
relative amount, specify '+' or '-' immediately before the line or
column.

* The new commands 'compilemacro2' and 'runmacro2' f11> will compile and run the macro source file displayed in the
current edit window. This can be very convenient when developing new
external macros.

* The status line hex indicator now displays '[EL]' when the cursor is
beyond the end of the line.

* Many other minor additions and changes
