Name        : scribes
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     :
Release     : 1.fc7
Summary     : A sleek, simple, and powerful text editor for the GNOME desktop
Description :
Scribes is a simple and sleek text editor for the the GNOME desktop. It focuses
on keeping the working environment free from distractions, and providing strong
automation of mundane, repetitive tasks.

Through this simplicity, Scribes is very powerful. Its many features include:
* A dynamic templating system (called Snippets),
* Automatic completion of indentifiers and bracketing,
* Automatic indentation and file saving,
* Bookmarks,
* Drag-and-drop functionality,
* Full support for Unicode (UTF-8) text (and many other encodings),
* Syntax highlighting for over 30 programming languages,
* Powerful GNOME integration
* Translations into several different languages,
...and more are in development!

In order to make use of its runtime documentation facilities, you will need to
install Yelp. Also, you may install the python-psyco package (x86-only) for a
boost in startup speed.

Update Information:

This update pushes Scribes to the latest upstream version which includes - among others - fixes to the "Open Document" dialog (alternative encodings can now be selected, and multiple documents can now be opened simultaneously).

Secondly, this version introduces new paragraph-based keyboard navigation shortcuts (see the ChangeLog file in the included documentation for more details).

Also, the auto-completion functionality now takes into account words in all documents open.

Lastly, new translations (for Dutch and Swedish) are included.
