Leo 5.1 b1 is now available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/leo/files/Leo/
This release features @clean trees, one of the most important developments in Leo's history.
The highlights of Leo 5.1 --------------------------
@clean nodes create external files without sentinel comments, yet Leo can update @clean trees from changes made to the corresponding external files, something long thought impossible. @clean trees preserve clone links and user attributes (uA's). Reading @clean trees is faster than reading @auto or @shadow trees.
The Mulder/Ream algorithm updates @clean trees from changes made in the corresponding external files. This is a completely rewritten and much simpler version of Bernhard Mulder's original @shadow update algorithm. http://leoeditor.com/appendices.html#the-mulder-ream-update-algorithm

Some more highlights:
* A new web page, http://leoeditor.com/load-leo.html, displays .leo files in the browser.
* Added command history to Leo's minibuffer.
* A new IdleTime class greatly simplifies idle-time handling.
* Leo now honors @language inside @doc parts
* @data nodes can be composed of their descendant nodes.
* @int qt-cursor-width = 5 is great for geriatric eyes.
* @shadow is now deprecated. @clean is superior to @shadow in all respects. Leo will support all flavors of @auto indefinitely.
