I'm pleased to announce the 0.5 release of the Yi editor.
Yi is a text editor written and extensible in Haskell. The
long-term goal of the Yi project is to provide the editor of
choice for Haskell programmers.
Yi is not a finished product. This is a beta-quality release. However, Yi has
become a lot more usable than previously, so if you feel like testing it, now
might be a good time to take a look.
Using cabal install:
cabal install yi-0.5.0.1
If you want unix console support, pass the -fvty option to cabal install.
* A purely functional editor core
* Key-bindings written as parsers of the input
* Emacs, Vim and partial Cua emulations provided by default
* Unix Console front-end (Gtk2Hs frontend is not supported in this release)
* Static configuration (XMonad style) for fast load
* Haskell support:
* Lexical highlighting
* Layout-aware parenthesis-matching
* cabal-build within the editor
* [blog and release notes](http://yi-editor.blogspot.com/)
