I've begun development on eddt just recently. It is my first endeavor into the open source community, and hope it to not be my last.
I've been a big supporter of open software and felt it about time a begin giving back to the community that I use in my everyday work.
According to plans the first functioning release will be version 0.4.0. This will contain absolutely no settings, it will allow for editing python code in a tabbed environment with a project browser and syntax highlighting.
