Textadept 7.2 alpha is released from http://foicica.com/textadept

As the version states, this is an alpha version that should not be used in
production. The major change here is the merging of the lexer Lua state
with Textadept's Lua state. I'm honestly not sure how useful this is, but
perhaps you can think of something cool to do[1] :)

Changes marked [Experimental] may be removed in future releases.


   * Honor `ui.maximized` setting in session files.
   * Do not halt opening files if one of them is already open.
   * Better key input handling in the terminal version.
   * Fixed Makefile bug in grabbing dependencies with older versions of
   * Recognize lower-case drive letter names for files passed from external
     programs in Windows.


   * Added Dart lexer.
   * Do not split the view when printing messages if tabs are enabled.
   * Look for *~/.textadept/osx_env.sh* for OSX environment variables due
     to changes in Mac OSX 10.9.
   * [Experimental] Replaced Lua¢s `io.popen()` and `os.execute()` with
     versions that do not flash the "black box" on Windows.
   * Added read-only access to the current key chain via `keys.keychain`.
   * Renamed "hypertext" lexer and its corresponding module to "html".
   * Added configurable tab context menus via
   * New GUI theme for OSX.
   * [Experimental] Merged separate lexer states into Textadept¢s Lua
   * Updated to Lua 5.2.3.
   * Updated to Scintilla 3.3.7.

Happy new year!

[1]: One thing you can do is parse some source text using any one of
Textadept's lexers. For example, from the command entry:

for k,v in pairs(_G.lexer.load('ansi_c'):lex('int void main()')) do
print(k,v) end
