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"."

    While I agree with what you're saying and would have modded if not for the response, it should be noted that they're using the "web technologies" buzzword and it makes just as much sense in this context as any other buzzword. What they really mean is that it's extensible with HTML and JS much like chrome and such. I'll stick with vim though, the headline of "yet another editor" is quite apt. I'm done trying out new ones for now.
