What is Beaver ?

Welcome to the Beaver Homepage!

To put it simple, Beaver is an Early AdVanced EditoR, for Linux and other Unices (and even Windows). It is licensed under the GNU GPL and intended to be lightweight, but full of useful features for programming, from website editing to coding. It is based upon the GTK+ 2 toolkit, supports many languages through config files and offers functions such as automatic indentation, completion and correction, as well as syntax highlighting. It even has its own mini macro language. Please see the menu on the left for more information. If you are interested in the development of Beaver, did a patch or want to report a bug, please subscribe to the main mailinglist

New maintainers, new branch, and new hosts

Hello everybody. My name is Michael Terry and I have taken over the development of the Beaver project. Another developer, Leslie Polzer, will soon join the team.

To get the ball rolling, I have released a new version, 0.3.0. The main goal of this release was to update the code to GTK+ 2 and to update the interface to follow the GNOME HIG. In addition, I rewrote the syntax highlighting engine (unfortunately, it's a bit slow right now). There is a lot of new code in this release, and it probably won't work right. So, I'm going to label the 0.3.0 branch an unstable branch. Use it with caution, and please let us know of any bugs.

Also, we are now hosted by the Free Software Foundation, where this website is now located.
