I've been using a slightly hacked v3.10 for over a year on 4.2BSD/SunOS,
and it never coredumps. Well...almost never.

v3.11beta has pop-up buffers (like list-buffers in Jove), tags support,
and partial multiple screen support (for future window-based versions).

MicroEMACS is even more portable thay Jove: AmigaDOS, Atari TOS, VMS,
and even more obscure systems....8^)
Jove's a very nice piece of kit, but it's lack of macro language is a pain.
