When possible, it's polite to supply a link to the page where it's 
described or can be downloaded.  In this case,

It looks pretty good on the web page.  The main negatives I can see are:
     It costs $70 per user
     It can only be purchased with Paypal, which I won't use.
     It's available for OS/X, Linux and Windows, with a single purchase
     The eval/demo is not time-limited (currently)

The positives
     It can be customized, apparently in Python
     The simple customizations are specified by JSON files
     Current download is version 2, but there's a version 3 beta, and if 
you buy now, you won't have an upgrade fee.


Note that the OP didn't ask which is a good editor, but which features 
make a good editor.  I'll post a response to that in a little while.
