General Information =================== This is version 2.29.4 of gedit. gedit is a small and lightweight UTF-8 text editor for the GNOME environment. gedit is part of GNOME and uses the latest GTK+ and GNOME libraries. Complete GNOME integration is featured, with support for Drag and Drop (DnD) from Nautilus (the GNOME file manager), the use of the GNOME help system, the GNOME Virtual File System and the GNOME print framework. gedit uses a Multiple Document Interface (MDI), which lets you edit more than one document at the same time. gedit supports most standard editing features, plus several not found in your average text editor (plugins being the most notable of these). gedit plugins may also be written in the python scripting language: to enable python support you need the pygtk and gnome-python-desktop bindings. Although new features are always under development, currently gedit has: * Complete support for UTF-8 text * Syntax highlighting * Support for editing remote files * Search and Replace * Printing and Print Previewing Support * File Revert * A complete preferences interface * Configurable Plugin system, with optional python support Some of the plugins, packaged and installed with gedit include, among others: * Word count * Spell checker * Change case of selected text * File Browser * Automatic snippet expansion * Sort * Insert Date/Time * External Tools * Tag list Other external plugins are also available. gedit is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2, see the file 'COPYING' for more information. The official web site is: http://www.gedit.org You can download the latest gedit tarball from: http://download.gnome.org/sources/gedit/ Information about gedit mailing lists can be found at http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gedit-list Installation ============ gedit requires GTK+-2.16.x, GtkSourceView 2.4.x and GConf libraries. PyGobject 2.12.x, PyGtk 2.12.x and PyGtkSourceView 2.4.x are required to enable python plugins support. Simple install procedure: % gzip -cd gedit-2.29.4.tar.gz | tar xvf - # unpack the sources % cd gedit-2.29.4 # change to the toplevel directory % ./configure # run the `configure' script % make # build gedit [ Become root if necessary ] % make install # install gedit See the file 'INSTALL' for more detailed information. How to report bugs ================== Bugs should be reported to the GNOME bug tracking system. (http://bugzilla.gnome.org, product gedit). You will need to create an account for yourself. You can also report bugs using the GNOME program bug-buddy. In the bug report please include: * Information about your system. For instance: - What operating system and version - What version of X - What version of the gtk+, glib and gnome libraries - For Linux, what version of the C library And anything else you think is relevant. * How to reproduce the bug. * If the bug was a crash, the exact text that was printed out when the crash occurred. * Further information such as stack traces may be useful, but is not necessary. If you do send a stack trace, and the error is an X error, it will be more useful if the stack trace is produced running the test program with the --sync command line option. See the file 'BUGS' for the list of known bugs. Patches ======= Patches should also be submitted to bugzilla.gnome.org. If the patch fixes an existing bug, add the patch as an attachment to that bug report. Otherwise, enter a new bug report that describes the patch, and attach the patch to that bug report. Patches should be in unified diff form. (The -u option to GNU diff.) If you are interested in helping us to develop gedit, please see the file 'AUTHOR' for contact information and/or send a message to the gedit mailing list.
