I've been not so active for the past months, but that's because I was working on a litle project called Deditor. It's a text-editor for linux. The thing that makes it special is that it is made for python and thus has some python-specific features like, syntax-highlighting, interactive interpreter, code analyzing, tool to run your code, ...
It offers the features an other text-editor also gives.

I've finished version 0.2 and wants to know whether it is good or not.
you can download a deb or a tarbal from my launchpad page

gEdit does most of that already. And I am quite happy using Eric IDE.
But, I will try it, and comment back here on it
