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've been waiting for ages for an editor that would allow me to write a good elastic tabstops [] plugin for it, while supporting proportional fonts, having powerful editing features (comparable to Vim or Sublime Text) and with an active community writing plugins. Oh and it needs to be damn fast.

    Whether this HTML-based thing will be it, remains to be seen. I'm highly skeptical about the last point, given the premises.
