The final (I hope) alpha release (0.3.1) of XED is now available for

There are lots of new features, and some changes to the UI, so I hope
those of you who have made helpful comments and tried things out will
take the time to re-download this version.  Changes since the last
announcement include:

>Changes from v0.2.1.4 as released:

 Menubar instead of buttons, with operations grouped in pull-downs
  under 'File', 'Edit', 'Options' (all Alt/Meta key-bindings still work)
 Preferences settings control key-binding mode, attr quotes, autofill,
  autoeol, autoindent, autosave
 Font size menu
 'Insert File' command added
 Can flush tag memory for a clean start on demand
 Autosaving support
 C-/ toggles an empty element between <a></a> and <a/> versions.
 Cut and Paste under WIN32 use clipboard for import/export
 Better support for large element type inventories:  consistent accelerators
  based on shortest unique prefix, mixed case handled properly
 Accelerators for built-in menu entries changed to non-alphameric to avoid
  clashing with user-defined tags/attrs/entities
 Double-click selects word/enclosing element/...
 C-space sets anchor in Unix key-binding mode
 Cross-modal pasting now allowed (e.g. from attr to content and vice versa)
 Renaming supported for PIs, unwrapping/wrapping for PIs, CDATA sections
  and comments
 Undo possible after save
 C-g clears selection in Unix key-binding mode
 File dirty is indicated by File* in menubar under WIN32, italic 'File' under
