- Update to version 4.0:
* An overlong line is no longer automatically hard-wrapped.
* Smooth scrolling (one line at a time) has become the default.
* A newline character is no longer automatically added at end of buffer.
* The line below the title bar is by default part of the editing space.
* Option --breaklonglines (-b) turns automatic hard-wrapping back on.
* Option --jumpyscrolling (-j) gives the chunky, half-screen scrolling.
* Option --finalnewline (-f) brings back the automatic newline at EOF.
* Option --emptyline (-e) leaves the line below the title bar unused.
* <Alt+Up> and <Alt+Down> now do a linewise scroll instead of a findnext.
* Any number of justifications can be undone (like all other operations).
* When marked text is justified, it becomes a single, separate paragraph.
* Option --guidestripe=<number> draws a vertical bar at the given column.
* Option --fill=<number> no longer turns on automatic hard-wrapping.
* When a line continues offscreen, it now ends with a highlighted ">".
* The halfs of a split two-column character are shown as "[" and "]".
* A line now scrolls horizontally one column earlier.
* The bindable functions 'cutwordleft' and 'cutwordright' were renamed to 'chopwordleft' and 'chopwordright' as they don't use the cutbuffer.
* The paragraph-jumping functions were moved from Search to Go-to-Line.
* Option --rebinddelete is able to compensate for more misbindings.
* Options --morespace and --smooth are obsolete and thus ignored.
* The --disable-wrapping-as-root configure option was removed.
