Leo <http://leoeditor.com/> 5.3-final is now available on SourceForge

an outliner.

   - @chapter is now allowed anywhere. No need for @chapters.
   - Faster spell checking.
   - The rst3 command supports @rst-table.
   - The show-invisibles command now uses native Qt characters.
   - Dozens of other improvements and bug fixes.

*Leo is*:

   - An outliner. Everything in Leo is an outline.
   - A Personal Information Manager.
   - A browser with a memory.
   - A powerful scripting environment.
   - A tool for studying other people's code.
   - A fully-featured IDE, with emacs-like commands.
   - Extensible via a simple plugin architecture.
   - A tool that plays well with IPython, vim and xemacs.
   - Written in 100% pure Python
   - Compatible with Python 2.6 and above or Python 3.0 and above.
   - A tool with an inspiring and active community.

*Leo's unique features*:

   - Always-present, persistent, outline structure.
   - Leo's underlying data is a Directed Acyclic Graph.
   - Clones create multiple views of an outline.
   - A simple, powerful, outline-oriented Python API.
   - Scripts and programs can be composed from outlines.
   - Importers convert flat text into outlines.
   - Scripts have full access to all of Leo's sources.
   - Commands that act on outline structure.
   Example: the rst3 command converts outlines to reStructuredText.
   - @test and @suite scripts create unit tests automatically.
   - @button scripts apply scripts to outline data.
   - Outline-oriented directives.

Simulating these features in vim or Emacs is possible, just as
it is possible to simulate Python in assembly language...
