I really wanted to like this one when I tried it out some time back;
it has a minimal C core of 2000 lines, the rest is Lua. It uses
Scintilla and comes from the same guy that brought LPeg lexers to
Scintilla (now supported in mainline SciTE). However, there is a
learning curve which does not make it a friendly first code editor.
(Translation: I was confused.)
And it does require the GTK runtime on Windows, which makes it an
awkward replacement for SciTE on that platform.
