Followup to my last ePen post: All but the first point are resolved. You can open an existing project by specifying the path on the command line but that’s too tedious for something which is supposed to be simple. Since I want to give a good first impression, I want this fixed before I release 0.8.
For spell checking, I’ve switched to jazzy which is more simple to use than JaSpell. You can find the repository with my fork here: http://epen.hg.sourceforge.net/hgweb/epen/jazzy/. Unfortunately, just invoking the spell checker for every key press is too slow, so I had to disable the code for the time being. I’ll resolve this with ePen 0.9 where I hope to fix some other issues with the editor as well.
[EDIT] The project home page is at http://sourceforge.net/projects/epen/
