    I'm a vi user so I won't be using this, but it certainly looks like a neat little tool for programmers.

    But it's alright, Ma, if I can't please him.

    This requires Gtk 2.10.0, and the latest Gtk version in the repositories is 2.8.20. Just thought you might like to know that.

    I was a VIM power user for years. I've become impatient with it over time. Now I only use it to edit configuration files in non-GUI mode. What made me like VIM is its powerful text processing capabilities. Many of which I implemented in Scribes. I can't say I miss VIM.

    That's unfortunate. I know AMD64 users have problems with Flash. Are you one by chance?

    Here is an old GIF demo.

    This release is targetted at testers, not users. I assume most testers are already on Edgy. It's unfortunate Ubuntu hasn't upgraded to GTK 2.10. Almost all other major distros have I believe. I'm still new to Ubuntu so I don't understand how the upgrade process works. I come from Gentoo were an upstream upgrade also means an upgrade for users. Plus GTK 2.10 has been out for months now. Does anyone know why it's not in Ubuntu? I have it here on Edgy, however.

    Stable releases only get security fixes and critical bug fixes. This reduces the load on the maintainers and reduces the possibility of upgrades within a release breaking working functionality.

    Anyway, I've been plaing with scribes 2.something some time ago, and the new release seems to work well. I've noticed that the document browser feels a bit jumpy though, hiding/closing the window and restarting it again.

    I'm really looking forward to scribes future, its interface often feels like a fresh breath of air and is sometimes annoying, a good sign I'd say. gedit has some nice features though (mostly through plugins), and i don'T want to switch text editors all the time :-/

    Oh, and please consider implementing the standart gnome toolbar options (like text beside/below icons). Having icons only is fine on lower resolutions; but on higher resolutions, especially with a small screen, it's a pain to hit them with the mouse.

    [edit] Oh, and making a change to a document, then undoing will not remove the * from the titlebar, though there are no unsaved changes.

    [edit2] Yet another thing I noticed: If you import templates that exist, they will be added again with a number added to their name. It would be nice for collaboration on templates if that would only happen if the templates were not identical - I could import someone else's templates and not have to remove all the duplicates.
    And it would be especially great if templates could be shared between scribes and gedit snippets - easy migration or even a unified default template set between GNOME text editors would rock.

    And before I forget it, thank you for such a nice program.

    [edit3] yay for another edit! I noticed that the bookmark functions from the right-click menu don't seem to work, using the keyboard shortcuts works though.
    The manual lists the keybinding for go to line twice. And shouldn't "Rename a File" be called "Save under a different name", since the original file will still be there?

    Seems to be VERY cool. But only THAT great for Python? Or does it support all those features for other languages too..
