NeEdit - history of changes

Few years ago I was forced to use Notepad.exe, a stantard plain text editor in Windows.
But it was lacking many things I considered necessary. Things like CTRL+S for save (now 
they fixed it) or current line number displayed somewhere. So I thought: why not write an 
own editor with at least CTRL+S added?
Since it would be written by myself I could enhance it all the time and add new features 
as I need them. That was 2001. New editor was born and it was called "Notepat" (d -> t). 
Versions 1.0 and 1.1 were released only among friends.

Later I renamed it to NeEdit. :)

I'm using NeEdit for few years now, enhancing it from time to time, sometimes fixing bugs. 
One day I realized that if I use it, if I like it, if it's useful and if some of my 
friends use it too, then maybe there are other people, that would NEED IT too, and that 
they may even buy it. However base program version is freeware, I'm working on better one,
with things like syntax highlighting and more...

BLA BLA, I'm afraid.... I still didn't fixed some important issues...
For example replace still doesn't work...
And they added CTRL+S in Notepad finally.

- Currently available is special BETA version released beacuse of user's requests.
- There sure are better editors around and I'm not sure if I will continue NeedIt's development...

There are the following KNOWN BUGS in current BETA version of the program:

1. Win 98 - url autodetect doesn't work (well, it depends...)
2. Win 2k / Win NT4.0 big files ( > 1MB) open VERY slow.....
3. false setting "modyfied" flag on some occasions
4. info (and status bar) - bad lines count (-1) if last line has only enter
5. minimize to tray - not really working (use not yet recomended)
6. if some *.ext is not registered to other app - there is no icon...
