So… Now EmEditor Free is again officially LIVE?
Any chance for a portable version? :)
Yutaka, THANK YOU very much for your answer!
I really tried to find link for EmEditor Free on emeditor.com, but it wasn’t successful :-)
Now I have placed link for EmEditor Free on my “freeware is the ware” blog ( http://zoniweb.blogspot.com/2010/05/emeditor-free.html )
Btw… I have made Portable version for myself from one installed EE Free (just collect all files from C/Prog files/EmEditor Free).
I have uploaded “portable” version of latest EmEditor Free v6.00.4.
If anyone wants it, please let me know.
If author of EmEditor think it is in any way breaking of EULA, I will not give link here.
@ gan: “Anyway i’m under the impression there will be no new version of emeditor free so i’m guessing you have to use it like it is”
I guess you are correct, but I just have to ask ;) Since I think that EmEditor Free can be very nice for many users, AND many of those users will find out that Free version is not enough for them, so they will go for a Pro. Anyway, that is a good way to make many users of own program ;) IMHO, it is better if someone use “my” free program, than competitors’ free or shareware.
At least, I would like to see somewhere on emeditor.com a link for that Free version, updated or not.
I would also disagree that 40$ is “almost free” ;) Especially when there are so fine freeware and open source programs.
For me, EmEditor Free is great; also are Notepad++ and Notepad2, which are both Open Source. I just wish that Notepad++ is little bit faster on start, but even now it is better than EmEditor Free (I don’t know about Pro, haven’t tried it). With Notepad2 is different – it is VERY fast, but has no tabs (not so important) and no “clickable URLs” (and I need that very often).
So, I don’t understand why EmEditor Free is not available from emeditor.com (maybe with some small improvements over time). Anyway, that would be nice for not-so-rich countries, where 40$ for “Notepad on steroids” is little bit too much :-D
If, by any chance, you want to little update EmEditor Free, I would suggest only few things (in order by importance) that will be nice for me personally:
1. Option to close program with ESC key (CTRL+W is not great choice).
2. Option to remove toolbar names.
3. Option to remove some of toolbar buttons and “Tools” toolbar.
4. Option to lock toolbars.
Other than that, EmEditor Free is almost perfect for me :lol:
