The Yzis team is glad to announce the Milestone 3 release of Yzis, the fast moving
vi-compatible editor from the authors of KVim. A lot has happened since the M2 release in August 2004:
many new features have been added and bugs fixed, getting us closer to the full Vim feature set. Check for yourself on the screenshots.
Yzis is developed using modern
technologies to move at a rapid pace: object oriented programming, Lua
scripting, syntax highlighting files in XML and unit testing.
The core of Yzis is a reusable vi engine, which can be
embedded as an editor. Frontends are
provided for ncurses, a standalone KDE application and the KDE component system KParts.
Yzis can be embedded directly into KDevelop and Quanta. Patches are available
to embed it as the KMail composer
and KHTML form editor
Yzis is already usable as a day to day editor. If your favourite Vim feature
or command is not supported yet, please drop us a note. We will be happy to add it.
The next milestone release is planned for summer
2005 and should be the last release before the stable 1.0. The first stable version
should be released at some point after KDE 4.
