Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, KKEdit is a text editor combining Mac’s BBEdit, Gedit and Leafpad. 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 0.1.9, which has been recently released, coming with fixes, including:
- the Back segfault has been fixes
- doxygen has better file integration
- the string slicing code has been implemented
- the app does not crash anymore when using bad regular expressions for the replace string
- a Doxyfile bug has been squashed
- the progress bar when running an external tool can now be controlled from the tool
- a progress bar for long documentation ops has been added
For information about the latest release, see the changelog.
