Blocek 1.6 (Announce)

Hello all!
After a quite long period I prepared a new version of my unicode (and not unicode) text editor and image viewer Blocek.
There is quite a many new features here:

1.6
- fixed graphical glitch causing garbage in some circumstancies when opening a new window
- mouse sometimes caused noticeable slowdown of program
- reenabled the char typing using ALT + <codes on numeric keyboard>
- fixed crash when "word wrapping" on empty file was selected
- optimized the method for getting the hardware glyphs from graphic card
+ implemented function keys CTRL+right arrow and CTRL+left arrow
+ implemented function CTRL+A (select all)
+ CTRL+Del deletes selected block
+ selected blocks are now visible just in the text - not only in status line
+ program language can be switched directly from menu system (no manual editing of conf. files is needed)
* not only the final compilation but also regular development is done with Freepascal 3.0.2


The download site is still the same like before.

Thank you for upload. The link for LFN version of archive should be OK now.

That first (LFN) download link isn't functioning properly.

Nevertheless, I did upload all of this to iBiblio for FreeDOS. Please tell me if there are any complaints.

It seems to crash all versions of UPX, even very old and also windows versions.

I successfully compressed it with 32lite 0.02d
