ANNOUNCE: gEdit 0.4.5

This is to announce the release of the 0.4.5 version of the GNOME text editor
gEdit, a lightweight but powerful text editor for both GNOME and stand-alone
GTK+. The homepage is at - new features since
0.4.0 include:

        * The beginnings of a Plugins API - this will allow the core of gEdit
          to stay small and flexible, but still be able to offer a limitless
          number of features. The API is being developed in parallel with Chris
          Lahey's text editor/word processor GO
          ( and currently
          includes an email plugin, an encryption plugin, an interface to diff
          (cvs and stand-alone) and some other demonstration plugins. Developers
          are encouraged to suggest enhancements in the API, and to contribute

        * A cool new customizable toolbar, thanks to Andy Kahn.

        * Multiple window support, so now you don't have to start another copy
          of gEdit just to see documents side by side - expect features such as
          drag and drop in the next version.

        * Improvements in the printing functionality, user interface
          enhancements, bug fixes and more!

Check it out, and don't be afraid to send us suggestions, constructive
criticisms, bug fixes and features!
