Because Kephra can now be safely installed from your local CPAN mirror, I make here some additional noise so you will think: "maybe I should try it?"(tm). Its fast and very stable (unless you find a bug of course). No kidding, some weird but harmless GTK warnings are recently the only known issue.
The obvious is already posted, headline and changelog.
EDIT: as merlyn correctly pointed to, there was no information about Kephra and this update at all:
Kephra is a Texteditor that don't try to force. Nearly everything is customizable and/or optional. It can be used mostly with mouse or keyboard and soon even by an Vi like commandline. Our approach is more tight, effective, integrated, even if some Plugin API is there and half its purpose is to extend it quickly with Perl.
This release was importand to fix the most nagging problems with utf and the cpan installer. Code folding and bookmarks were finalized. We introduced marker, unlimited little markings that can be navigated also via searchbar. Syntaxchecker, debugger, search tools can use this feature. We added also a fullscreen, transparency and a kind of "netbook mode" which closes temporally all bars but tabbar (can even disable this) to get most of small screens. Esc closes all these modes. As always many small things and fixes come with every new release. Enjoy.
