[StrongED] StrongED 4.69f1 available

Hi All,

StrongED 4.69 is now available from: http://www.stronged.iconbar.com/

Please note that this is a minimal release that contains only BaseMode,
Other modes that you may wish to use have to be downloaded separately
from the website (Download page -> Modes database).

There have been many of changes as well as a number of bug fixes. Some
of the changes made are listed below.

As always, all feedback is welcome.


Changes between 4.69f1 and 4.68f2

  A lot of the work done for 4.69 has been behind the scenes stuff such
  as moving blocks of code to their own source file (source now consists
  of 32 files, from the original 17) and refactoring various bits of
  code. As a result there aren't as many user facing changes as in
  previous releases but there are still some worthwhile new features.

  One important change is that StrongED is now ARMv7 compatible meaning
  that it will run on all the new machines that are based on BeagleBoard,
  PandaBoard and Raspberry Pi.

  Another big change, support for outline fonts has been much improved.
  Files with embedded control codes are now handled correctly, including
  printing. There however still minor glitches when using outline fonts,
  StrongED wasn't originally designed with outline fonts in mind.

  The Goto dialogue box has been extended, it's now possible to go to a
  physical line, a logical line or a file offset (address in Dump mode).

  Searching in Dump mode now searches the raw binary when displayed as
  Byte, Half, Word or ASCII. In Asm display the disassembly is searched.
  The Half display type has been added; it displays a file as 16 bit
  (half-word) values.

  Advanced search has gained a few new search tokens:

    <<< and >>>  match start and end of text respectively
    << and >>    match the start or end of a paragraph
    \{ and \(    match the current search position against the bracket
                 and search forward trough the text to find the matching
                 closing bracket. Nesting is taken into account, strings
                 and comments are skipped. The search continues after
                 the matching bracket.

  The List-of-Windows now allows you to close texts. If a text has been
  altered then it will be saved first. You can select the texts manually
  or you can filter out texts based on status (changed/unchanged), path
  and/or filetype.

  Finally a few minor improvements: Added the option to make newlines
  visible. Filetypes &AA5 (TskBasic) and &9FB (Basalt) are recognised as
  containing Basic and detokenised on loading. List-of-Found & Throwback
  windows can now be scrolled using the scrollwheel on RISC OS 5.
