jEdit v4.3 Pre6


I've only just downloaded it. If there were existing reviews I wouldn't bother to write but as this is the first it may be of some slight value for me to mention that it downloaded and installed with no problem whatever on my XP Athlon64 system.

It has a sparse, functional, pleasant appearance. It seems to have all the features I'd expect of a programmer's editor. It is quickly responsive.

I look forward to using it.
