I am happy to announce the release of Zile 2.3.0,
the tiny Emacs clone.

This release continues the code cleanup and portability fixes started
in 2.2.60. gnulib is now used extensively, and 2,000 lines of code, or
about 20% of the code base, has been removed by refactoring,
simplification, and use of gnulib. The new minor version number
reflects the magnitude of the change.

To try to limit the number of bugs introduced as a result, and to aid
future maintenance, a DejaGnu test suite has been added, which tests
almost all the interactive commands.

Many small bugs have been fixed, including cases where Zile did not
behave like Emacs; some small limitations of Zile with respect to
Emacs have been removed.

Users are for the most part encouraged to upgrade, as this release is
believed to be stable; however, cautious users may want to wait for
further 2.3.x releases, or for a suitable length of time to elapse.
