There is a new project starting up to build a clone of the popular Crimson
Editor. This is being run by enthusiasts of CE who are afraid of it dying
(as the original developer seems to have vanished).

Anyhow, I've decided to hang about the project because I use CE all the
time and have done for many years now. I put it to the project team that
they might like to have a look at D for the development language. Here is
the thread for it ...

It has had some interesting feedback so far.

I'm trying to get used to CE as my main MDI editor, outside of VC++. So far it seems to suck less than the other free alternatives. It's got support for D syntax highlighting, except for the latest keywords and the nesting comments. I wish the author would make it open source, so that someone could fix the annoyances.

This looks good. I have been using CE since my free upgrade period on Ultraedit expired in Dec '02. The one thing I would love to see is Lua scripting in my editor. Things would be so much easier to customize. -DavidM

Ever try SciTE? Head on over to http://www.scintilla.org/ for it. It's integrated with Lua and all the configuration is done with that. I love its simplicity and ease of use. I just wish it had the CTRL-click to select word feature I love from MSVS so much. -- Regards, James Dunne

No, but it should be possible to add.
