2014-04-13 -- New EPIC5 -- EPIC5-1.1.10
EPIC5-1.1.10 (commit id 1798) was released April 13, 2014. (The release of EPIC5-1.1.9 was withdrawn because of a serious bug.) The changes include:
- An $encodingctl() function which gives low-level control over /ENCODING rules.
- The $fix_width() function, which never worked quite as advertised, has now been written so it does.
- Most string manipulation functions are fully UTF8 aware, and the basic unit of counting is a single codepoint.
- /XTYPE -L, $[num]var (pad/truncate) and /FEC are all UTF-8 aware
- Case sensitivity is UTF8 aware, which means things like == and $rmatch() will work even for non-English text (if your locale supports this)
- For the most part, substantially all of the scripting environment is fully UTF-8 enabled. yay!

- Unlimited ability to recode messages in any encoding to/from IRC.
- 256 color support.
- String manipulation functions (like $mid() and $split()) are fully UTF-8 aware.
- Lots of other things!
