> > Hi Folks,
> > Cuis 4.0 is available at http://www.jvuletich.org/Cuis/Index.html .
> > This is a very important release. It's been over 10 months since Cuis
> > 3.3, but all this time means that there are a lot of big news now.
> > The biggest one is the public release of the Styled Text Editor, by
> > Bernhard Pieber. Bernhard will do the announcement of this project
> > himself, all I want to say is that Styled Text Editor is the driving
> > force behind most of the new stuff in this release. I also want to add
> > that I'm delighted to be able to work with Bernhard on his project,
> > and that I'm more than happy with the wonderful effect this is having
> > on Cuis itself.
> > Check http://www.jvuletich.org/Cuis/CuisReleaseNotes.html .
> > So, the main new features of this release of Cuis are the required
> > support for External Packages. This is a very lightweight
> > implementation of Packages, based on PackageInfo, but not on
> > Monticello. Versioning is done with GitHub. Take a look at
> > http://www.jvuletich.org/Cuis/CodeManagementInCuis4.html and
> > http://www.jvuletich.org/Cuis/CuisAndGitHub.html .
> > Full list of features (from the release notes):
> > -----------------------------------------------------
> > - Package Support. Cuis 4.0 has a package implementation based on
> > PackageInfo. Can be used with a Git repository (like GitHub) for
> > package versioning. More info at "CodeManagementInCuis4" and
> > "CuisAndGitHub". This infrastructure and process is used for the
> > StyledTextEditor project, developed by Bernhard Pieber and Software
> > Generation.
> > - New handling of ChangeSets. The idea is to have only one "live"
> > change set that automatically captures all changes done to the Cuis
> > Core image. Changes to Packages go to separate ChangeSets.
> > - UCompletion. A new implementation of Autocompletion for
> > Smalltalk code. Activates with ctrl-space. Usually gives the selector
> > desired as the first option. Some features are:
> > = Sorts by last definition of selector (Methods recently
> > saved go first),
> > = Sorts appropriately all selectors matching entered prefix
> > (no hardcoded limits, like 40 selectors matching 2 letters).
> > = Restricts suggestions if receiver is Global, a Constant or
> > a pseudo-variable.
> > = Doesn't have an "expanded mode". Always shows relevant
> > = Not restricted to a set of previously selected packages.
> > All the methods in the system are accounted for.
> > = Very fast, thanks to an optimized Trie implementation.
> > = Compact code. Relies on services by Trie (for storing and
> > querying selectors) and Shout (for parsing incomplete methods).
> > = Helps make Shout faster, by providing super fast queries of
> > selector prefixes.
> > = Can be used for other applications besides Smalltalk code.
> > Currently used for an English glossary for StyledTextEditor.
> > - Trie. Cuis 4.- includes a very optimized implementation of a
> > Trie. Tries are dictionaries where keys are Strings. Lookups are
> > extremely fast. Search for entries matching a prefix are extremely
> > fast (O(1) regardless of the size of the collection). Addition and
> > removals are quite fast too. Used for UCompletion, holding 11,000
> > selectors. Also used for an English spell checker (in the
> > StyledTextEditor project) holding 166,000 words. In both cases use of
> > memory is quite reasonable (3 and 5.4 bytes per character in average)
> > and query speed is extremely fast.
> > - Multiple level undo / redo in all text and code editors.
> > - ClickNHalf+Drag to select words. TripleClick or
> > DoubleClickNHalf+Drag to select paragraphs. Like most modern text
> > editors and wordprocessors do.
> > - Multiple text selection (with control+mouse). Like most modern
> > text editors and wordprocessors do.
> > - Lf. The newline character is no longer Character cr (ASCII code
> > 13), but Character lf (ASCII code 10). This is the standard in Mac and
> > Unix platforms, and the required convention for GitHub. All the code
> > in the image has been converted.
> > - cmd-w closes window below mouse pointer. cmd-< y cmd-> cycle
> > through windows.
> > - New "PostIt" like HoverHelp morphs.
> > - Simplification / Redesign: Scrolling in Morphic (TransformMorph
> > gone, etc).
> > - Deep cleanup in Paragraph and paragraph display services in
> > Canvas and DisplayScanner (now MorphicScanner).
> > - MouseClickState refactor, to ease new gestures
> > (ClickNHalf+Drag, DoubleClickNHalf+Drag, TripleClick).
> > - Killed AbstractEvent hierarchy. Unified event subscribing,
> > triggering and handling everywhere in Cuis.
> > - More TextMorph cleanup.
> > - Numeric enhancements done by nice and jmv, both on Squeak and
> > - Many minor enhancements, cleanups and bugfixes.
> > - Updates to Squeak: Numerics, Network, and many others.
> > I hope you enjoy this release of Cuis as much as Bernhard and I
> > enjoyed working on it. As usual, comments, discussion, bug reports,
> > kudos and donations are all
> > welcome!
> > Cheers,
> > Juan Vuletich
