- Update to version 4.4:
* Fix segfault due to buffer overrun.  This happens if a line
with many backslashes appears in the status line context display.
* Fix jmacs: ^X ^F and ^X ^B were not working
* Build fixes for Solaris
* Improve php highlighter: allow numbers in substitution variable names
* Unicode tweak: treat private use characters (Co) as printable
* Dockerfile highlighter: Add Docker new commands from 1.12,
mark bad strings in arrays
* Fix loading external charmaps
- Changes for version 4.3:
* Improve memory usage by shrinking buffer header size and
highlighter state size.
* Improve performance of status line context display (which shows
the first line of the function that the cursor is currently in).
This feature was making JOE very slow on extremely large files with
auto indent enabled (typically JSON or XML data files).  Now
the syntax highlighter computes the context display (using a new
syntax named context.jsf).
* Add a mode 'title' to enable or disable the status line context
display (previously autoindent mode was overloaded to do this).
* Disable syntax highlighting and context display in very large
* Force more appropriate modes when we enter hex dump display:
enable overtype, disable autoindent, wordwrap, ansi, picture.
* Handle middle mouse button in "joe -mouse" mode (before it did
nothing).  It's treated as paste (copy region to mouse) as
expected.  (patch from Petr Olsak).
* Do not kill region highlighting during incremental search (patch
from Petr Olsak).
* Negative numbers were not being recognized in blocks
* PgUp/PgDn would try to scroll menu if the window above is a menu
(it should do this only for completion menus associated with
* Use 'LC_ALL=C sed' to get JOE to compile in OS X.
* Forward direction delimiter matching where the delimiters do
not begin with special characters (for example in Verilog
"begin" / "end") was not working.
* Get mouse to work in menus: this broke in 4.1
* Character classes with ranges were not working for UTF-8 (as in \\[a-z])
* Apply spec highlighting to .spec files
* Gracefully handle short terminals: fix segfaults which occur when
trying to shrink terminal while many windows are on the screen or
while turning on help with a short terminal.  Fix similar bugs
involving the skiptop option.  JOE now works even if the terminal
height is only one line.
- Refresh patches
- Small spec file cleanup
