KKEdit 0.2.11 Brings Interesting New Features

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 0.2.11, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Started on remote control using “kkedit @@Xddd” where X=G – goto line, X=S – search for define, and ddd is data ( line number search string.
  • Standardized source file copyright/licence headers.
  • Fixed undo/redo all.
  • Fixed regex anchors not always working for replace all.
  • Corrected icon entry in desktop files.
  • Updated ‘Comment Selection’ example tool to include commenting – sh, Python, Makefile, .desktop, Perl, C++, C, Objective-C, C/C++/ObjC Header, Java, Pascal, HTML.
  • Updated open file with line number to scroll to line num immediately.
  • Added optional switching to line number when opening file using /path/to/file@LINENUM.
  • Minor doxy documentation fix.

Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via some third party PPA, so installing the text editor on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.x, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya and other Ubuntu derivative systems is easy.
