FXiTe is an advanced cross-platform text editor built with the Fox GUI toolkit and the FXScintilla text widget. It features built-in syntax highlighting for 40+ languages, an embedded Lua scripting engine, macro recording and playback, multi-line regular expression search and replace, rudimentary ctags and calltip support, a flexible interface to external tools, and a built-in "message window" to capture the output of external commands such as compiler error messages, etc.

Release Notes: Initial support for building with CMake, compilation fixes for FOX-1.7.42+, an update of Scintilla to 3.3.5, support for UTF-16 files with BOM, and respect for UTF-8 BOM. There were several Windows-specific fixes, including improved I/O for external commands and filters, bugfixes for single-instance and DND regressions, and fixes for problems with default indent/unindent keybindings.
Release Notes: This is a major source code refactoring and cleanup. A long-standing CPU usage problem was fixed. The find/replace dialogs can be docked to the main window, and it is possible to continue editing while they are displayed. This release adds support for \L, \U, \l, and \u modifiers in regex replacements. The GUI is more responsive while running macros and external commands. Several other minor annoyances were addressed. Scintilla was updated to version 3.2.5.
Release Notes: An auto-complete feature was added. The right-click "popup" menu can be customized. Scintilla was updated to 3.2.0, and Lua to 5.1.5. A few minor and/or obscure problems were fixed.
Release Notes: A soft line-wrapping feature was added, international keyboard support was improved, and support for compose keys (aka "dead keys") on Xorg with FOX 1.7.29 or later was added. Several appearance and usability improvements were made in the GUI, and a couple of critical bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Horizontal scrolling was improved, file open dialogs are easier to use, and there are many more small improvements and bugfixes. This release compiles and runs on MINIX. Scintilla was updated to version 2.24, and some platform-specific issues were fixed for FreeBSD and MS Windows.
