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"."

    Text editors have been a source of frustration for me for ages.

    Why? I can't imagine what one would want out of a text editor that either vim or emacs hasn't been doing for years.

    To be honest, I have already tried them many times, but I have a job, a wife, am currently attending university and on top of that I have many personal projects. I'm honest with you when I say I would LOVE to master both, but I just don't have enough time. It would be cool to have something like an emacs or vim "lite" with 10% of their full counterpart power but with 90% less learning curve slope.

    That said, I'll try again in a few months. That's my fate :-)
