medit is a multiplatform GTK text editor. Started originally as a simple built-in editor component in GGAP, it grew up to a real text editor.

The intention now is to make it a useful programming and around-programming text editor.

Here are some key features of "medit":
Configurable syntax highlighting.
Configurable keyboard accelerators.
Multiplatform - works both on unix and windows.
Plugins: can be written in C or Python.
Configurable tools available from the main and context menus. They can be written in Python, or it can be a shell script, or in MooScript - simple builtin scripting lanugage.
Regular expression search/replace, grep and find frontends, builtin file selector and whatnot.

GTK+ version 2.6.x
libxml2 - for syntax highlighting
python and pygtk for python tools and plugins.

What's New in This Release:
Added document bookmarks (Dmytro Savchuk).
"medit" without arguments opens new file if existing process instance
is used (Lontronics).
Open dialog remembers its size (Lontronics).
