Leo 4.4 beta 4 is now available at:

This version fixes a long-standing MacOS bug.  It is likely to be the last 
beta release before 4.4 rc1.  This release also adds several new commands 
and contains a script for updating leoSettings.leo.

Warning: The previous beta was not widely distributed.  Please do some 
testing in your environment before recommending this version of Leo to 
others, (such as your students).

Leo is a text editor, data organizer, project manager and much more. See:

The highlights of Leo 4.4:
- An Emacs-like mini-buffer: you can now execute any command by typing its 
long name, with tab completion.

- Many new commands, including cursor and screen movement, basic character, 
word and paragraph manipulation, and commands to manipulate buffers, the 
kill ring, regions and rectangles. You can use Leo without using a mouse.

- Flexible key bindings and input modes. You can emulate the operation of 
Emacs, Vim, or any other editor.

- A tabbed log pane. The Find and Spell Check commands now use tabs instead 
of dialogs, making those commands much easier to use. Plugins or scripts can 
easily create new tabs. The Completion tab shows possible typing 

- Autocompletion and calltips.

- Dozens of other new features and bug fixes since Leo 4.3.3.
