Kate is a fast texteditor for the KDE destop with an Emacs-style document interface. I hope it works well and improves workspeed on many little textfiles. ;-) Our new buffer managment will allow it to open 50MB files ++ in less than 5 seconds (at least on my 400Mhz P2 ;) It is thought as a more powerful replacement for the old KWrite app, which will still keep alive for the existing userbase and because it is just a lot smaller and therefor faster on launch than kate. For Kate Plugins, Kate provides the Kate Interfaces, which allow deeper access to the Kate app and its features.
