I am happy to announce a new release of GNU poke, version 1.2.

This is a bug fix release in the poke 1.x series, and is the
result of all the user feedback we have received since we did
the last release.  Our big thanks to everyone who provided
feedback :)

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

The tarball poke-1.2.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.

This release is the product of a month of work resulting in 37
commits, made by 5 contributors.

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
   David Faust
   Egeyar Bagcioglu
   Konstantinos Chasialis

Thank you all!  It is a real pleasure to hack with you.

And this is all for now.
Happy poking!
