Thanks to this blog post I have started using Editra for my coding needs. It at version 0.3.38 which is its 14th alpha release at the time of this writing. Don’t let the alpha part fool you though. It is a very nice app that has some good features. It has syntax hilighting for 60+ languages and code completion built in for python code. It has a plugin manager for easily installing some extra features. For a list of the currently available plugins see here. The one thing that I would like to see is the addition of hg as a vcs in the Projects plugin.
If you decide to try it out please post any bugs that you find in the projects bug tracker. If you are on irc.freenode.net then drop by the projects channel at #editra.
If you are a Foresight Linux user then you can try out the editor by running:
sudo conary update Editra=foresight.rpath.org@fl:2-devel
