UltraEdit 是 Win 下较出名的一款小型 IDE 工具,和 EditPlus 一样受欢迎。在 Win



在三月份的时候就已经放出消息,开发一款 Linux 桌面上的编辑器。去看过 UEX 几次,只是有截图,没有任何下载连接。

前几天又看了一下,好象可以测试了,偶就试着发了封邮件到 。

大概一天的功夫就给回了邮件,邮件内容包含了各个 Linux 版本的
package 及一个临时的测试帐号和密码。

As you may know, the UEX Beta has been in progress for a while and we are now
expanding the participants significantly. There are several important items
that should be taken into account prior to installing this Beta.

  1. Currently auto-detection of file type on load works for UTF-8, ASCII and
    UTF- 16 (if it has a BOM present) only. The default system code page will be used.
    Because of this, when loading any file that is not one of these, it will be
    necessary to select the proper encoding in the Open dialog for these files to
    be opened correctly. If a Unicode file is opened without selecting the proper
    encoding, it will appear to be a blank file. If you reload the file and
    select the proper encoding you will see that the file contents were not altered by
    the incorrect encoding detection. (This will be corrected in the near future.)

  2. The function list window is available via the View menu, but is currently
    not functional.

  3. Configuration options that are subdued are not currently functional but are
    intended to be fully functional prior to release.

Again, thank you for your participation in this process. Your community
contributions are greatly appreciated. Please send us any feedback you may
have and report any problems you may encounter while using the Beta to:
(support@idmcomp.com) Subject: UEX Beta feedback

While we will be reviewing and actioning all feedback emails we receive, we
may not be able to respond to each one individually as our priority is to address
the issues and continue to make progress.

Thanks again for the help!
