Yes. I have been out of town this past week and have lots of school
work to do, but I'm trying as best I can to get ta updated to
Scintilla 2.x. I'm aiming for 2.1 on March 1.

Will be there.

As mentioned earlier, it was removed from a previous version. I'm sure
you can find it if you really want it. There used to be a modules/
textadept/macros.lua and an associated PM browser.

You'll be able to do this with 2.1.
