11 Cat's Eye Technologies is please to announce the
12 release of version 2.25 of the Befunge-93 distribution,
13 christened the Silver Jubilee edition, as it commemmorates
14 the 25th anniversary of the Befunge-93
15 programming language (1993-2018).

17 This release does not contain any changes to the code
18 (those were all in 2.24, earlier this year,) but it does
19 include significant changes to the distribution:
20
21 * Addition of "man page" style documentation for the
22 `bef` interpreter itself, rather than the language.
23 * Small corrections to the Befunge-93 language docs.
24 * A massive overhaul of the included Befunge-93
25 example programs, including a much better index
26 and more accurate information. (Thanks to
27 James Holderness for research and constructive
28 criticism that enabled this!)
29 * Several existing example programs have been
30 relicensed as CC0. (Thanks to Ben Olmstead for
31 granting permission for this!)
32 * Several new example programs. (Thanks to
33 Jeremy Vine for attempting to interview me that
34 one time!)
35 * The addition of a cache of historical materials
36 extracted from the archives. See very early
37 versions of the `bef` source code and documentation!
38 See a completely unrelated language design that
39 was going under the name "Befunge" in spring of 1993!
