Top New Features in gedit 2.26

25 April, 2009

The three main new features in gedit 2.26, which came along with Ubuntu’s new Jaunty Jackalope release are a fullscreen mode (which I personally find slightly lacking – only the text view is shown) and better use of the status bar in terms of being able to select the syntax highlighting language and tab width very quickly. All of these are really nice additions to the program, and I’m glad to see that gedit’s becoming more and more full-featured.
