Anonymous Coward writes "GitHub's Atom, a new text editor blending C++ and web technologies, is now being released as a limited beta. The new editor, which claims to have partial TextMate support, is extensible with the help of a centralized add-on manger (the same way Eclipse does) and is heavily integrated with the github platform. The final licence is not known at the moment, but the project already makes use of over 80 open source software packages.

Access to the beta is currently "invite only"."

    I love that the text editor "scene" continues to grow with new ideas.

    I do find that even now, years later, I still miss an editor called "Brief" for DOS. It was one of the programs that felt absolutely natural for me to use. Key layout and commands just made sense and it had copy features (like being able to copy columns and not just text) that worked well when I was doing machine vision coding in C.

    I'm sure there are many other editors that would have this same feel but as development and UI design environments become more and more integrated (like XCode), I've resolved to just deal with how the IDE developers think things should work.

    Yeah, and the first video game of every genre you ever played was the best of that genre too.

      Let me guess, you liked the new Star Wars movies better than the originals.
