I am happy to announce a new release of GNU poke, version 1.4.

This is what expect to be the last bug fix release in the poke 1.x maintenance series.  We are working very hard in what will become poke 2.0, expected to be released in February 2022.

See the file NEWS in the released tarball for a detailed list of
changes in this release.

The tarball poke-1.4.tar.gz is now available at

  GNU poke ( is an interactive,
  extensible editor for binary data.  Not limited to editing
  basic entities such as bits and bytes, it provides a full-
  fledged procedural,interactive programming language designed
  to describe data structures and to operate on them.

Thanks to the people who contributed with code and/or documentation to this release.  In certain but no significant order they are:

  Mohammad-Reza Nabipoor <>
  Guillermo E. Martinez <>
  Fangrui Song <>

As always, thank you all!

And this is all for now.
Happy poking!
