Yzis M3 has been released

The Yzis team is glad to announce the M3 release of Yzis, the fast moving vi-compatible editor. A lot has happened since the M2 release of august 2004: many bugfixes and new features have been added, getting us closer to full vim feature set.

Yzis is developed by the authors of kvim and uses modern technologies to move at a rapid pace: object oriented programming, lua scripting, highlighting syntax files in xml, unit testing.

The core of Yzis is a reusable vi engine, which can be embedded as an editor component (in the spirit of scintilla). Frontend are provided for ncurses, KDE and for KPart (KDE component system). A Gnome port and a pure Qt port have been started but are looking for manpower.

Yzis can be embedded directly into KDevelop and Quanta. Patches are available to embed it as the kmail composer
(http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59481) and khtml form editor (http://dev.inzenet.org/~panard/others)

Yzis is already usable as a day to day editor. If your favourite vim feature or command is not supported yet, please drop us a note at yzis-dev at yzis dot org. We will be happy to add it.
