[StrongED] StrongED 4.69b1 available

Hi All,

The first beta release of StrongED 4.69 can found on the website:

As StrongED 4.69a7 is already in wide use and it's been quite a while
since there was a stable release of StrongED I've decided to stop work
on 4.69 and move towards a stable release of 4.69.

So, what was going to be StrongED 4.69a8 will now become 4.69b1, but
without the new features that require changes to the font and/or
configuration files. These features have been pushed to 4.70.

Much of the work that has been done since 4.69a7 won't be directly
visible as it's been about rewriting internals but there are a few
changes that you may find useful (see below).

Please let me know when you find a bug so that it can be fixed before
the final release of StrongED 4.69, thanks.

As always, all feedback is welcome and appreciated!


Changes in StrongED 4.69b1 (from 4.69a7)

 - The goto dialogue box has been extended to allow different targets.

   o Goto physical line (aka textlines, lines separated by newlines)
   o Goto logical line (aka wraplines, lines as displayed on screen)
   o Goto file offset (non-Dump modes) / address (Dump mode)

 - Advanced search has gained a couple of new match options:

   o '<<' & '>>' to match start/end of paragraph
   o '<<<' & '>>>' to match start/end of text

 - Altered search code to stop overrunning the End-of-Text when matching
   at start of line. This should stop aborts from occurring under some
   circumstances, both with searching and folding.

 - Block sensitivity (automatically selection Block scope when cursor is
   inside a block) didn't work for Save dbox when opened from view menu.
   Block sensitivity didn't work at all for the Print dialogue box.

 - Split view horizontally didn't work correctly when the view had a
   horizontal scrollbar, the bottom view would overlap the scrollbar of
   the top view. Code also used hardwired widths for window furniture.

 - New function ScrollText(direction), scrolls the text in the direction
   given, keeping the cursor in the same position (relative to view).
   The old LineUp and LineDown functions are now considered deprecated.

 - The final fold target in a file wasn't being folded in some cases.

 - Folding a selection would cause StrongED to hang, should be OK now.

 - Printing files with control codes in them should now work correctly.

 - Files typed &AA5 (TskBasic) now accepted and loaded into BASIC mode.

 - Dump mode can now display bytes in pairs (half word mode).
