A simple HTML and text editor for UNIX-based systems running X11 and using GTK and/or GNOME. It was designed to have as little bloat as possible while retaining the features of a modern GUI-based text editor. It remains small for the number of features it contains, and will remain that way. Features includes multiple windows and multiple documents, a complete preferences system, HTML tag insertions and editing dialogs, unlimited redo and undo, autosave, file locking using fcntl() of flock(), and the ability to drag and drop files between gnotepad+ and other applications. This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.
