Hi,

Thanks to Chris Emerson's initiative, the terminal version of Textadept
supports mouse events! Obviously your mileage may vary according to the
terminal you're using, but most modern terminals should support mouse
events.

I just triggered a nightly build so you can download the latest nightly
right now and try it out. The first thing you should know is that on
Linux, Textadept won't allow the usual "select is copy" and "middle-click
is paste" as in most terminal programs. You must hold the Shift modifier
key and then select text to copy and middle-click to paste. I added a FAQ
entry to the packaged documentation.

Another thing to note is the rectangular selection modifier key cannot be
changed from Alt. If your Linux window manager uses Alt+Mouse to move
windows, use Ctrl+Alt+Mouse to make rectangular selections. The reason the
rectangular selection modifier cannot be changed is that Ctrl+Mouse is for
multiple selection, Shift+Mouse is terminal-specific, and the
Super/Windows key modifier is not recognized at all.

Mouse support for the terminal version is available on all platforms:
Win32, Mac, and Linux. It should also be available on BSD for those that
compile it.

Thanks again Chris!

Cheers,
Mitchell
