What’s new in Kate

Kate is a professional text editor for the K Desktop Environment (KDE). It is one of the most feature-rich and advanced text editors available on any of the Free Software desktop environments. The name is derived from KDE Advanced Text Editor.

The latest news about Kate comes from a posting by Dominik Haumann on the KDE website based on code-commits to Kate’s source code at a recent developer sprint in Vienna, Austria.

A new feature introduced in Kate is the “Minimap as Scrollbar,” which “shows text in a miniature view” on a side pane or panel. It makes it easier to navigate the document being edited.
