Welcome to The Aurora Editor v1.20. The Aurora Editor is an advanced
high performance text editor with a superb windowing environment, full
mouse support, a huge one gigabyte virtual memory for editing very
large files, an object oriented macro language, a multi-instance
programmable file manager, unlimited multi-level undo/redo, a 386
version, and much, much more!

To install The Aurora Editor, simply copy the distributed files to the
drive and directory of your choice. Add this directory to your DOS
"PATH" for easier access.

NOTE: If you are installing over a previous version of Aurora, be sure
to backup your configuration files (ACFG.A, AKBD.A, AMEN.A) before
installing.

While you are using the editor, you can press F1 or click on the Help
menu bar item to obtain online help on any topic. Press to
activate the pull-down menu system and explore the features of Aurora.

The complete documentation for using and configuring the editor is
contained in the file A.DOC. Documentation for the Macro Language is
contained in the file AML.DOC. Both documents can be printed with the
DOS "print" command.

Technical support is available by telephone (301-468-2255), U.S. Mail,
Internet Email to: [email protected], or Compuserve Email to:
71702,1025. Technical support can also be obtained from the Aurora
Support BBS (301-230-1214). You can call the BBS 24hrs/day at speeds
up to 14,400 bps with v.32bis connections.

Additional support is available on the FidoNet AURORA conference by
polling 1:300/8 on FidoNet, or through shareware conferences on the
FidoNet, RIME, ILink, SmartNet and U'NI-Net networks.

Thank you for evaluating Aurora!



What's new and different in version 1.20 (Jan 14, 1994)
--------------------------------------------------------

o User-definable Text Translation automatically expands abbreviations
and corrects commonly misspelled words or typos as you enter
characters into your text. You define the words and substitution
text in a translation table in the file ATRN.A. You can also define
macros that are executed whenever the macro function name is entered
as a word in your text.

Text translation can be turned ON and OFF for each Edit window via
the "Translate" toggle on the "Set" pull-down menu. When
text translation is ON, a "T" appears on the status line.
can be used to edit the translation table (ATRN.A).

One new library command was added for text translation:

wmtran - translation ON/OFF toggle

Three new configuration variables were added:

TextTran - text translation ON/OFF default
TranObj - current text translation macro object
TranCSet - character set defining a word for translation lookup

can be used to edit the translation table (ATRN.A).

(see "Text Translation" 18-7 in A.DOC).

o From the "Open and Insert" prompt: pressing or specifying
directories or wildcards will now open a File Manager window and
prompt you to select a file.

o New Edit window color settings were added to the configuration
file ACFG.A:

coEdiD - the color of modified or "dirty" lines
coEdiDL - the color of a modified line at the cursor

o The Binary Line Length can now be specified after the "b" option
when opening binary files from the "Open" prompt(s) or DOS command
line. For example:

Open> myfile.txt/b43

In the example above, "myfile.txt" is opened in binary mode with a
line length of 43.

o The keys can now be used in combination with the cursor keys
to create character and line marks.

o The "Expand Tabs" command now accepts TabWidth values
from 1 to 64.

o A new config setting "DlgStyle" allows you set the border style for
dialog boxes (similar to "BoxStyle" for one-line box prompts).

o The new command "askkrep" repeats the last key command
entered. You are prompted for the number of repetitions.

o An editor macro can now be specified on the DOS command line with
the a "-e" command line option. The macro will be executed after
the editor (and all files) are loaded.

o The library function "cgoto" was renamed to "cmov".

o The "k_chr" event function has been moved from ALIB.X to AKBD.A for
edit and prompt windows. It can be used to intercept non-function
(typeable) keys.

o The evaluation copy can be registered with a key to facilitate easy
upgrades for licensed users.

o New About box and Exit screen.

o Other minor changes.

o Maintenance:

Fixed a rare bug causing error messages #101-#109.
Better recovery from full disk saves.
The video blink mode is reset when exiting the editor.
Fixed minor printing problems.
Other minor bug fixes.


What's different in version 1.12 (Nov 17, 1993)
------------------------------------------------

Version 1.12 is a maintenance release and also contains a few minor
enhancements since the previous version (v1.11):


o Added the option to ignore case when sorting marked blocks.

o Added the "Append" option to the replacement confirmation menu
when replacing files with block saves or with move/copy from
the file manager.

o Added the new configuration setting "BoxStyle", which allows you
to add optional 3D effects to one-line box prompts.

o Added a sample macro to AKBD.A showing how to call a spell check
program from within an edit window.

o Aurora is now a "DESQview aware" program.

o Minor bug fixes


What's different in version 1.11 (Nov 7, 1993)
-----------------------------------------------

o The contents of a character mark can now be saved to disk.

o The option "a" was added to the library function "msave" (save
block). This option will allow the block to be appended to an
existing file.

o A new library function "qwrd" returns the word at the cursor.

o Increased the internal stack size when shelling out to dos. This
resolves conflicts with some network cards which may require more
interrupt stack space.

o Corrected an initialization problem which may cause OS/2 or QEMM
traps on a few machines.

o Added sample macro code to the File Manager (see AKBD.A) to show
how to do spell checking, image viewing, unarchiving, and archive
viewing, etc with files listed in the File Manager.

o Other minor changes.
