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 guess you've been lucky then? Notepad++ is the only text editor I've used in 30 years that crashed *repeatedly*. Bug reports and feature requests - that I made - got responses from the dev: "sounds great why don't you do it."

    But at least it's free.

    These days, EmEditor (paid and registered, lifetime license), *CodeLobster (licensed plugin bundle), Notepad and Notepad2.

    *CL has been unstable at times, but few full out crashes.

    My only real annoyance with EmEditor is the dev is Japanese and sometimes the phrasing (or location) of a command or menu-item can be hard to find.
