Morphos The MorphOS Team has just released an update to the MorphOS 2 SDK. The archive comes with a brand new programmer's editor offering autocomplete, syntax highlighting, jumping to definitions, declarations and documentation, etc for C based projects. Scribble's display layer is based on a port of the well known Scintilla engine. You can see Scribble in action in this video. The full news item can be found here.

Please, someone tell me if I'm wrong to read "syntax highlighting" and assume that MorphOS developers didn't have syntax highlighting on their native platform prior to this. What did they use? Emacs/vim?

The original amiga OS was perfect in every single way despite not having any development environment capable of syntax hilighting, therefore syntax hilighting is superfluous.

It is also very unbecoming that they ported some dirty, poorly optimized and open-source text editor component to achieve that when the amiga community already have absolutely everything it needs.

WTF am I reading. Actually, vim has started its life on an Amiga and was always well supported on AmigaOS.

Nice trolling attempt. Surely you don't really mean that the base editor for Notepad++, TortoiseSVN, jEdit, GEdit and several IDEs is "dirty and poorly optimized" ? I bet you're using it yourself.

@ all trolls:

Actually Text editing on Amiga-Like operating Systems with highlighting and indent, it works perfectly on old Cygnus Editor, advanced text editor, and its rival GoldED 8, and was perfectly enhanced on CubicIDE, the evolution of GoldED.

See it here:

How poor are those people unaware that Amiga has made very big advances in these years, and believe they made some humor when actually they made just nonsense babbling trolling.

There were some editors that offered simple syntax highlighting but this is the first that comes with background indexation of your current project. Earlier editors only provided highlighting for predefined system functions and defines.

Give them a break. In another 10 years they will have a complete operating system running on antique Macs.

It's already a full operating System running on antique Macs.
