Version 0.1 of EDI marks the first official stable release of the application since we started development 2 years ago! It combines the features that have been included in earlier releases plus the new editor we’ve been working on in the background.

Full feature list:

  • Editing and saving text files
  • Tabbed browsing of open files
  • Opening editor in a new window
  • Displaying directory for the project (directory)
  • Link files out to external viewers / editors
  • No screen waste (toolbar, menu, tab are out of the way of the developer)
  • Info panel with logs and useful output
  • Create new file
  • Simple build functions
  • Search & replace in file
  • Line numbers & go to line
  • Creation of new projects from name input and skeleton project files
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Diff rendering

This release offers a huge performance improvement over previous beta releases and is more stable too. The base requirement is EFL 1.15 and we continue to use libclang for the syntax highlighting.
