While it has interesting features like: jump to function declaration, search and replace via regular expressions, options for saving and restoring sessions, support for multiple bookmarks and source code highlighting, it is not an IDE.

The latest version available is KKEdit 0.2.6, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Removed redundant ‘Restore Session With Bookmarks’ bookmarks are now reloaded by default.
  • All tabs updated at once when restoring session.

  • Fixed crash when ctags gets confused and produces an enormous function name.
  • Added ‘Sort Tabs’ to file menu.
  • Fixed some minor encoding to UTF8 bugs.
  • Fixed bug when loading certain html files.
  • Fixed minor callback bug in prefs/plugin prefs.

  • Changed dropbox to dropboxentry in spellcheck word dialog.
  • Fixed bug in spell check word.
