+    Chinese translation by Chaosye.
+    German translation by Christian Dywan.
+    User config and data files are moved into ~/.config, ~/.share, etc.,

+    Improved file encodings handling, and fixed some bugs related to it.
+    Made it use more stock items and icons from icon themes.
+    Improved paned widget behavior, no more nasty drawing artifacts.
+    Fixed Find dialog which treated replacement text as a regular
+    expression.
+    Made editor recognize "nxml" emacs mode as xml.
+ mime type database is used now on windows, so it knows
+    how to highlight files of common types.
+    'medit filename' behaves better when another isntance is already running.
+    Underline character in a filename is no longer treated as mnemonic
+    underline in the Window menu.
