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 like Notepad++ and it's not just free it's licensed under the GPL. From what I understand though, it's very optimized for Windows and a non-Windows version would practically be a rewrite. Fast and useful though.

    Notepad++ is my favorite text editor. The only limitation I'm aware of is that it's windows only.
