Congratulations with the new release!
The "normal" pointers are a relief and XWPE no longer hangs when I quit the
program in the middle of a debug-session!

Could I already submit my wish-list for #30a?

1: When I close the messages-window (to get rid of all the silly messages),
it automatically pops up when a new messages is sent to that window. I
would prefer the messages window to remain absent as long as I wish it to.
It should only reappear when I ask it to. Software development is more
efficient when the screen is as empty as possible and when next-screen or
former-screen instructions don't have to go by that messages window.

2: Can you make all the confirmation windows optional? E.g. "Really quit
debugger?". Of course I want to quit the debugger, otherwise I wouldn't
have pressed ctrl-F2. Etc.

3: You have modified the syntax of the string that helps finding
error-messages from the compiler. This was necessary since one could not
enter a "carriage-return"-symbol in a field. Still I cannot figure out how
to implement the new methods. At the moment I use the regular Gnu-fortran
(g77) compiler. Even when I set the compiler-style to "gnu", then the
cursor just jumps to the first column of the line containing the error,
though there is column-info in the output provided by the compiler and xwpe
suggests that it would take this into account. Could you make the
default-settings such that in GNU-mode the editor jumps to the column
suggested by the compiler? Or give me the correct message-string for GNU?

When I'll have succeeded in installing my pc at home (still refuses to
boot), I'll try to write some code for (suggestions for) contributions.
