Old parsing removed. . Lots of memory leak. C stuff which was a big problem has been. Replaced by more tractable C++ code.
9.006 Jan 2020 03:15 minor feature: Removed '-x' command-line option. The 'experimental' GUI is now the GUI that replaces the previous version . Added '-p' command-line option. This uses the experimental parser. started in 2019. It is by no means complete. . Added sumr() function, to sum a range. It is like sum(). but takes 4 parameters instead of a range. It is useful if you want to use relative ranges based on current row() and col(), for example. . Input interface heavily reworked. It is now more vi-like. Use `=' to change a cell, for example. . Commands don't work anymore. . C-l, C-r, cell alignment. . Eliminated the creation of backup files. . Removed keybinding C-x C-s for save-spreadsheet. Use C-s instead. . Removed reading of init file. . Removed many date functions. C++ has date-parsing libraries, so it's. better to use those if needed. If anyone finds that their much-needed date function has disappeared, then let me know, and I'll see what I can do. . Added headless command g", for goto-cell'.
8.0.022 Jan 2019 03:15 minor feature: C++17 COMPILER IS NOW REQUIRED . Many functions removed. I've adopted the policy that if I don't use them. Personally, then I'll get rid of them. This greatly alleviates the Maintenance nightmare. If anyone finds that a needed function is deleted Then let me know, and I'll reinstate it. It's an ongoing process to try to move functions from 'core' to 'user'. 'core' functions are a bit Tedious to deal with. . Small changes in the file format. May cause incompatability, but I'm not expecting it. . Removed help system. Read the html file instead. . Added command test-curses-suspension.

Disabled Forth because it required 64-bit architecture. . Improved formatting of 0.0. (). . Removed support for: Motif, printing, plotting. There is too much maintenance work in it. I'm not sure anyone even uses neoleo for more than 5 minutes anyway. . X11 being deprecated. `configure --with-x' if you still want it. . Importing oleo graphs disabled. They caused crashes ().
